Sporty, Yet Functional — I love the ability to go anywhere, do anything, and get there in a hurry. It can go off-roading with the SUV's, then get back on the road and smoke Mustang GT's all day long. It is a great all around car. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Performance

Cons: Looks

A Wolf In Sheeps Clothing?? — Its an STI in disguise, case in point why would an ordinary Forester have ceramic brake pads?? Plus it has more room to haul around all of your stuff and who doesn't need that?? Turbo need I say more?? and ground clearance.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun.

Cons: Premium Fuel.

Awesome Car. Hope It's Not My Last. — Great car. The interior has nicely thought-out styling and design, with curves and circles that all tie together. With seats up and a wash, it's presentable for work. With seats down it's an excellent worker around the farm and dog taxi, bike taxi, fence post hauler, etc. I've had no unexpected maintenance or repairs. It's fun to drive, and has good visibility in all directions. I love this car. My only disappointment is that it will probably run forever, and I will not get a chance to buy a new one!

Pros: Everything between the bumpers

Cons: Could it be too good?

2004 Subaru Forester Xt — This car is WICKED fast. Turbo-charged 2.5 liter boxer engine. A small SUV/tall wagon that has all-wheel drive and goes 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. Faster than the iconic 350Z and most other sportscars. I love when a kid pulls up next to me in his civic with fart pipes. Must feel crappy getting smoked by the wagon with the kids in the back seat. Never had a problem with it. Great car. Will be buying another Subaru soon.

Pros: Power, power, power

Cons: No sunroof available with manual transmission

Subaru Forester — like it as a practical family car with a bit of grunt. the car severely lacks good looks but i really like driving it around the city and would recommend it over any stupid MPV (apart from the Ford S-Max..)

Pros: easy to drive

Cons: its ugly

All Purpose Vehicle — It has it all: space for small family, fast, luxury, reliable... I love it!!! I just got it, so I haven't really found any down sides yet, but I heard the brakes aren't perfect... A bit of turbo lag also, but not too bad. It's not an Audi Allroad, but it's still pretty awesome!

Pros: Space, luxury, sporty, fun to drive, AWD for winter

Cons: Brakes...

Subaru F. — Overall the Subaru Forester is a good, car. It's Handling is superb, and the All wheel drive is great. Although, the outside appearance leaves something to be desired. The cost of ownership is alright, the gas and insurance is not too expensive. This car gets through it all, and, or the right people, is fun to drive

Pros: Systems

Cons: Appearance

Johndoe's Forester — Like: Well built, optioned up (sunroof, leather etc). Reliable & versatile. Dislike: too practical, got no balls when you step on the gas. Handles like the Titanic.

Overall the forester locked ok. The problem I hade was the engine. It sounded totally worn out with only 80 5oo km on it. Looks like bad maintenance by the previous owner. Not worth the money. Read More
