2012 Subaru Forester 2.5X Review
safe and great handling
4-speed automatic transmission need improvement
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.

2012 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium Review
Tiz a Subaru. Like the AWD. Could have more power and better MPG.
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

Roomy front row with an intuitive layout of dash. Back seat is a little tight for adults but great for kids. Much larger cargo ability than I first thought - much better than similar models! Feel e... Read More
Subaru Really Is Love
Subaru professes that LOVE is a Subaru. A few minutes driving this small SUV will convince you of that. The Subaru Forester has the quiet, comfortable ride of a larger car; the quickness and agility... Read More

This Is A Good Choice For New England Winters.
This is a good choice for an all-around small car with AWD. It is a 2010 that I bought after a tree fell on us as we were driving home one day in our 2004 Forester. We felt that the 2004's strenght ... Read More
Economical Awd And Cargo Capacity.
I bought this car brand new in July 2009. I have not had any trouble at all. It gets 25 plus MPG all around driving. It has fulfilled all the requirements I bought it for. It's more car than SUV, ... Read More
It's A Wonderful Ride.
This car can go fast and I feel incredibly safe at 80 mph with no shimmy or shake. Getting out of tight spots is a snap the way it jumps on a dime and the handling is tight - so much fun to drive and... Read More
Nice Family Sedan
AWD is heavy on gas use. Back seat middle can be tight with two booster seats at each side. BOXER should last longer than others. good hauling capacity. meeds less maintenance than many other Japanese... Read More
A Very Good Car. People Who Live In Areas With Snow Will Appreciate The Awd. Fairly Fun To Drive.
It is a great car. It may not be the best looking car, but it is reliable. I have had one maintenance problem, but my Subaru is a repaired salvaged title. It is pretty noisy in the back/cargo area... Read More
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. ... Read More
