    Wonderful Car! — This car has been very reliable and fun to drive. I would recommend this car to anyone who needs a comfy car with room for kids and groceries. I love the way that it runs in the winter it kept us safe and warm.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: This car is a true family car.  It is reliable, roomy and fun to drive.

    Cons: None really.

    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

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Tiz a Subaru.  Like the AWD.  Could have more power and better MPG.

    Cons: 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.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: safe and great handling

    Cons: 4-speed automatic transmission need improvement
