2009 Subaru Forester — This is our current family car. I LOVE it! It's fun to drive is fairly roomy (for a small SUV), is great on gas, and is well made. I do sometimes wish it was a little roomier...all the kid stuff takes up a lot of space!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Very Safe, Peppy, Economical And Fun To Drive. — Only had it one week. Handles great, is peppy and fun to drive.Great highway milage 30mpg, so so city milage 16 mpg. Car is very nimble, tight and responsive, great off the line and easy to park in the city. The center arm rest could be bigger and more padded, however I just saw that a center armrest extension is available which I intend to order. Best part is what you don't see, best crash tests, structural integrity and every safety feature imaginable, also reflected in a ton of insurance discounts.

Glad I Chose A Forester — Have only had car for a week, but so far everything is good. Had a 1999 for 10 yrs. so this is a wonderful change. I miss the little storage unit on cosole and also miss the place for change.. Visibility is great and car is much quieter than older model. Chose black interior, glad I did..

Awesome And Affordable Crossover — We bought the 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium. It is a V4 engine but has great acceleration ability. Mileage is about 25-27 in the City. The AWD is just great! It handles bumpy roads with ease. We love the large moon roof. The ride is surprisingly quite on the Hwy's even with an open moon roof. The passenger side front seat is lower than the driver front side but one gets used to it after a while. I wish the sound system was of better quality (available in more expensive options). It is one of the most sleek crossover available in the market. Over all we would rate this vehicle a ***** rating. Remember, Subaru's usually last forever. Its worth investing in one!

Bought A Forester For My Husband, And He Loves It. — this car is perfect for my husband. He is tall and gets plenty of head room. It is a nice car to drive, can't wait till we need the all wheel drive. plan to give it to my daughter in 10 yrs. Performance is great, and the suburu is a quality car that will last for miles. The new Forester body style is much nicer than the earlier models that I thought looked frumpy.

The 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5 Xt Limited---an All-around Treasure — This Forester performs flawlessly with more than adequate accelation, solid braking and sure handling. It has a great appearance...the 2009 remodel is sweet. Gas mileage averages @25 mpg (only 3 tankloads so far). It is...indeed...fun to drive and I highly recommend it!

2009 Subie Fozz X Premium — To be honest, I have never once looked at a Subaru Forester until about 3 months ago. What once used to be what I considered a station wagon is now more SUV-looking than ever. Performance as always from Subaru is solid, with the Symmetrical All Wheel Drive System. Braking is superb, and the car handles like a charm. I've never had any issues with the build quality of the car, although when the music is played at full blast, the doors will do some rattling.... May need some dynamats. The styling of this car is great... The Subaru Accessory guide is great, with front/rear bumper guards, side skirts, spoilers, etc. The sound system that comes standard is not that great, but it can easily be modified and the standard head unit already has an output for an aftermarket sub. You can easily add on Subaru Tweeters and a Sub, or go for an aftermarket sub. Gas Mileage on a small-size SUV like this is pretty good... Considering the way I drive, i get about 22MPG, compared to my old ML320 that got 13MPG. Overall, this is a fun car to drive around town

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

Pros: Looks, Mods, Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, Large Roomy Interior, Exceptional Driving Visibility, Bang-For-Your-Buck

Cons: Poor 4 speaker sound system, Outdated 4 speed automatic transmission,

2009 Subaru Forester — Vehicle seems to be very solidly built. Feels a bit stiff when new but comes out of it around 500 miles and is quite quick in the turns. Vehicle seems to be very sure footed. Our Montana winter should prove that statement or not. Everything performs well but the stereo system could be a bit better even in the base model. The performance acceleration, braking and handling seem to adequate to excellent depending on the circumstances. Interior and exterior styling aren't bad but could have been a bit more SUV looking. It is a great improvement in rear seat room over previous models. Gas mileage is good but could have been better for the size of the vehicle. This vehicle is enjoyable to drive and the seats are quite comfortable.
