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 saved our lives.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I love the AWD.

Cons: Front seats are not very comfortable but there are butt warmers.  Car is rather underpowered.

Fantastic All Year Vehicle With A Very Spacious Interior! — I would have to say it's one of the most utiliarian vehicles that i've owned over the past years, this is our 3rd subaru so I can only say good things about reliability and over all performance and residual value. Best bang for your buck by any means. As for the down side I only have 1 gripe and that's the noise insulation from the road otherwise the vehicle would be perfect. Did someone say SNOW? ha!! never thought twice about going out even in a blizzard, as long as you put on snow tires, the Forester is UNSTOPPABLE!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fantastic handling, comfortable and VERY spacious, absolutely love the recline ability for the back seats and a HUGE sunroof.

Cons: Wish the car could be better insulated against road noise, also the dash could use some more thought to make it more technology savvy.

The Worst Car That I Have Ever Owned — This could be a good car, but it is a croaker. Build quality is appalling. I found out too late that Foresters (and Subarus generally) are plagued by rattles. Google "Rattles Subaru" for pages of hits. Mine is a class winner. Rattles everywhere which Dealer (Stealer) has acknowledged but not fixed. Fobbed off to Subaru which just does not care. BE WARNED AND DO NOT BUY.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safety rating, Forward visibility.

Cons: RATTLES, RATTLES, RATTLES

Excellent Value — I looked at and drove everything in this class. I felt the Forester gave the best value for the money. It is roomy inside(I am 6'1" an don't need to have the drivers seat all the way back)The 2010 sits a few inches higher than older models and has a more small SUV look that the older "station wagon" style. It has an ample cargo space for day to day stuff even with the rear seats up. Good accneleration and handling on highway and city. I have drive the car just over 2000 miles already and my combined MPG is just under 25.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun sporty drive, good mileage

Cons: Rear seat do not lay back. Power must be on to roll up electric windows.

Great Buy — A little bit of squeaking and the transmission can be sluggish. Lots of passenger/head room and dog-approved. Good gas mileage so far, well within the 20-26mpg range and closer to 26 even with city-driving.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good for family/dog, lots of space

Cons: Sometimes sluggish transmission

I Have More People Stop Me And Ask About The Car Than Any Car I've Owned. — Great car for winter driving. My previous car was a Honda Pilot and this car is a bit smaller, but more comfortable seating position. The first thing that you notice from the interior is the view of the intercooler intake. Very cool. The car is awesome in any sketchy weather, rain or snow. The 2.5l boxer with the turbo is music to the ears for engine lovers.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: engine sound, seating position

Cons: who uses a 6-CD changer anymore???

Overall I Love This Car. — I absolutely love the Forester in general, however I do wish you could order some of the features separately. I think the moonroof should come standard on all Forester models without having to have anything else added. The car is energetic (especially w manual transmission: I'd never buy an automatic).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is the perfect size, excellent in the snow and in all weather, fun to drive, great looking, fuel efficient, and affordable

Cons: Once in a while the car fails to start right away regardless of temperature. This is my 4th Subaru and they've all done it w/o explaination or a discerable reason. Dealership diagnostics do not pick it up. There is no record of it and it seems that no one believes me!!v

Very Well-built Vehicle With Outstanding Safety Design — Good solid balanced feel in braking,turns,and acceleration--it is fun to drive. The engineering quality is evident in its handling, although a 5-speed transmission would smooth out acceleration. The quality of the interior materials could be better and storage increased. The passenger seat is low. Vertical adjustment or power seat should be available for passenger seat. Overall, the Forrester is a roomy and balanced design. So far,I'm very happy with my purchase and the Adventure Subaru Dealership.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Quality design & engineering

Cons: Quality of interior materials
