    2010 Subaru Forester - 2.5XT Premium (A4)

    Pros: Love the Puddle Lights.

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Get one before they are all gone.

    This is our third Subaru an it is by far the BEST. With Ethanol free gas I get over 22 MPG in the City and have averaged over 33 MPG Hiway. It is good looking, packed with lots of goodies, solid and has no problems going in Snow of a possible 10 I'd give it a solid 10. Great job Subaru.

    2009 Subaru Forester - 2.5X w/Premium & All Weather Pkg (A4)

    Pros: All wheel drive

    Cons: Lack of power

    Advice: Don't buy it if you are taller than 5' 10'

    No power. Needs a five speed automatic transmission. Sound system poor. Feels cheaply made inside. Dash controls feel like they will fall off when they are used.

    2009 Subaru Forester - 2.5X (M5)

    Pros: snow handling (AWD)

    Cons: stripped version/ questionable parts quality

    Advice: If you have to buy, byt premium or limited.

    Unhappy. The advertized price if for a manual transmission. (Have to add $1200 extra for automatic: (false advertising)). The version 2.5X is stripped down version. (removed roof racks, removed fog lights, manual A/C..) Once you start the car, have to wait for at least 3 min for the blue light (coolant temp low) to go away!!!! Had it for 2 weeks, developed a huge windshield crack (service manager needed a flashlight to find the microscopic chip..) Basically not built to be of outdoorsman quality. If you have to buy, do go with the premium/limited version. (do not recommend the stripped down model.)

    2009 Subaru Forester - 2.5XT Limited (A4)

    Pros: It drives like a car.

    Cons: I haven't found any fault with it yet.

    Advice: Buy one with all the bells and whistles.

    I took a test drive on the back roads of Arizona. This SUV zipped right up a 35 degree incline with no problem. It was as if the SUV itself was having fun. There were some deep ruts in the road and I hardly felt them. The vehicle has excellent rock clearance. The seats are very comfortable. I traded in my 2008 Chevy Truck for the Forrester and I don't regret it one bit.

    2006 Subaru Forester - 2.5X L.L. Bean Edition (A4)

    Pros: Very easy to handle--parking, etc.

    Cons: the RATTLE that has developed.

    Advice: Drive the Subaru before purchasing any other SUV.

    In the last six months my car has developed a rattle that appears to be coming from the passenger side of the car. What can be done to eliminate this rattle. Other than the rattle I am very pleased with the car.

    2007 Subaru B9 Tribeca - Limited 7-Passenger w/Gray Interior

    Pros: Cockpit and front controls

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Great all around vehicle. Superb craftsmanship

    The Tribeca is a joy to look at and drive. Can't help but ohh and ahh everytime I see one. Seats are very comfortable front and rear. A bit cramped in 3rd Row, but liveable for short ride for young adults or children. Fit and finish are Lexus or Infinity like. Absolutely adore the design all around. Wish they were not so quick to change for '08. Just ever so slightly sluggish off the block, but not enough top be a problem.
