Pros: The sun roof, of course!
Cons: Slow accelerationI love my Subaru Forester. It is very comfortable and is great for hauling kids, groceries, furniture, oversize items from the hardware store and more. The oversize sun roof is really nice, too. I live in northern Canada and it is dark.... I can let in all the available light and this improves everyones mood when you spend your winters living in the dark. The only complaint that I have with the car is that it doesn't have a lot of get-up-an-go. The acceleration isn't what it could be. The vehicle is small enough that it should be able to have the extra power. However, the all wheel drive is a great feature in the northern climate. The car is also great in the extreme cold. It just starts right up and actually defrosts in a reasonable amount of time. Overall, it is a great car and gets great gas mileage!!
The best vehicle Ive had..
Cons: seatsgreat awd vehicle out there.. I feel safe and its reliable for family or a single person..
Excellent all-around vehicle
Pros: Open feeling in a smaller vehicle with great moon roof.
Cons: Could have more spaceCould use more space for my personal usages but overall it meets a variety of needs well. Good winter car that allows for fun in the summer. I've been averaging 26-28 mpg over the life of the vehicle. Seats could have some extra padding.
Pros: all wheel drive
Cons: How low it sits to the groundNever had a problem with the car since I bout it!
'03 subaru outback review
Pros: 6 disc cd player
Cons: fuel consumption could be betterWell made, comfortable and safe car with a minimum of problems over the years
Blown Engine @ 5,000 Miles
Pros: Handling & brakes are superb
Cons: Engine blew 2 pistons at 5k , required a complete rebuild not covered by warranty because I changed the muffler.Love the car , love the handling - BUT - its not really a $35K car - its a $45K car after you have replaced the engine. Anyone thinking of buying an Sti needs to search Google before and key in 'ringland failure'. A massive disapointment overall after many years of supporting Suabru.
Pros: sport wagan style
Cons: gas mileageVery dependable and safe car. Only wish the AWD could be switched off to get better gas mileage
