Pros

Gas mileage, roomieness, fun to drive!

Cons

Catalytic converter sucks balls, needs more power. I guess i shoulda got the turbo.

45

Great! — Overal a great car! Handles great especially with new struts. The all wheel drive makes it at home in the snow and the five speed keeps the gas mileage around 25 even ripping up the mountain roads. I have 147,000 miles and have to replace the catalytic converter which is going to be around $!,300. Ouch. Other than that no problems.

Fun And Sensible — Nice string enigine with turbo on board to put it at 214 hp. Interior is excellent. A fun car to drive all in all, can get fairly cheap if used. Lots of trunk space even without putting the rear seats down. Plenty of ways to cutomize this subaru forester! FUN!

nice bunch of features in a unique package

Cons

a little thirsty around the singapore cbd

Forester — good low end torque, stiff suspension, low key attitude, explosive performance, unique engineering, fun with moonroof open, reliable to get the job done with minimum fuss , low price entry point, safety features adequate, a little squeezy at the back, but lots of luggage space, ideal for a couple with small kids...

Practical, reliable and inexpensive

Not as good on gas as I would like and the passenger seat is not very comfortable for long trips

My Current Car — The Forester is a very reliable, well built, easy to drive and maintain car. I am very impressed with the all wheel drive system which comes in handly with Florida heavy rains and the mountains of western NC. Easy to load it up with stuff for the vacation home and the dogs.

Pros

Great family car, packed with fun filled performance

Cons

Drive train - now in for it's second warranty repair in 25000 km's

35

Subaru Forester 2.5 Xt Prodrive — Addition of the Prodrive package boosts power to 389 Nm of torque and 186 Kw of power. I am nervous as the drivetrain does not seem to be up to what the engine throws at it. Lowered suspension limits offroad ability - handles like a sedan now, however not as good as an Impreza. Appearance like many of the old Scoobies are love/hate depending on the individual Overall I love it - an absolute hoot to drive!

Woo Hoo — Love this car. After some minor mods the 2.5 turbo just screams on the road. Would love to have the STI version and maybe I'll slowly build it for this one but for now this suits me just fine.

I Love My Forester! — My first, and probably last brand new car! Commutes, the trail, all weather, hauling, awesome car. It actually performs instead of just going, compared to my previous few cars anyway.
