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

Very Impressed With Handling And Acceleration.i Would Have Wished That They Included Rack. — I love the handling and fuel economy. It is very agile and is very dependable when you need to make quick turns. Brakes work really well and stops when you need it to stop. Appearance wise, sometimes a head turner.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: no complaints yet.

Cons: too early to say

10 Out Of 10 — I like everything about the 2010 Forester. It rides smooth and handles with ease. The stereo is crisp and clear and the cd player is just as sweet! It looks great inside and out. Gas mileage is about 26 for me. A fun little critter to drive! The all weather package is a must for NE Pa. I wish I could have got a little more of a discount but I didn't have a clunker and they were not moving much on price. I still think it beats any other small SUV dollar for dollar.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, performance,

Cons: I don't really care for moon roofs but it came with it.
