Good Car Overall — Only recently bought it but it has been good so far. Only down negatives are that it needs a better automatic transmission and a few extra inches of space would make a huge difference. Overall satisfied so far. Will add more after having it longer.

Wonderful Car! — This car has been very reliable and fun to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone who needs a comfy car with room for kids and groceries. I love the way that it runs in the winter it kept us safe and warm.

Pros

Tiz a Subaru.  Like the AWD.  Could have more power and better MPG.

Cons

Thin skin... first week we owned it, we were parked under an Oak Tree and acorns fell and actually dented the hood and bonnet top.  Ouch.

2012 Forester 2.5 — Have managed to put 15K on it in less than a year. No maintenance issues, but did have to replace the rear brake light lens as it was fogged up. Overall is a great daily driver and people hauler. Use it to travel between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, SC

This Is A Good Choice For New England Winters. By toyotaron
