Overall:

I drove several models, but the Subaru Forester had plenty of pep, and was a very smooth operating vehicle. I compared it to the VW Tiguan and the Nissan Rogue. Feature for feature the Forester is the best value for my dollar.

Overall:

Didnt care for all black including interior as well as exterior. The black leather upholstery had some stains that Im not sure could be removed. Also, the lens on the right rear taillight was broken. Tires still have some wear in them. It drove very nicely. Personally, I think the price is maybe $500 to $750 too high.

Fun, Efficient, And Surprisingly Sporty Family/multi-use Car. — This is a recent purchase, so will update with new impressions once we have them. So far impressed with the car's comfort, space, handling, visibility, and efficiency. Comparable MPG and practicality to a sedan, yet adds AWD and more versatility. Mainly waiting to see how reliability and cost of ownership holds up - Subarus have a good name to them, so things are looking positive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Early impression: excellent power, handling, and MPG for a crossover SUV. Design is basic but stylish, fun to drive, with excellent visibility and plenty of passenger room.

Cons: Again, early impression: a bit small on the cargo space (expected with a crossover).

Overall:

Super Car And Great Value. — After 10 years with my old car, I have been checking out what's on the market. I hadn't considered a Subaru until someone suggested how much their friend liked their new Forester. So, not expecting much, I test drove one, three times so far. I was very favorably impressed. For a SUV, handling was quite nimble but was still comfortable over rough roads, railroad tracks and the like, while remaining solid and quiet. The base 2.5i engine was more than adequate for my needs. The interior is very spacious and the visibility great. The front seats could be a little better, but that can be said about most of the small SUVs on the market, and the overall design and infotainment systems are a bit out of date, but I can forgive that since I value the driving aspects of the car more. Overall, it is a great value for the money, even at the higher trim levels. It's my choice when I trade cars later this summer.

Pros: Great job of handling rough pavement without sacrificing cornering and control. Spacious interior and great visibility. Base engine is great for most people. Great driving car.

Cons: Front seats could be better bolstered an more comfortable. Overall design and infotainment tech is a bit behind the times for those who place a high value on those items.

Overall, I Love The Car But Very Disappointed With The Oil Issue. — I bought this car after having my last car for nine years - I was excited about having a new car; my first Subaru. That excitement was diminished very quickly when I had to add oil to it with only 1400 miles on the odometer. If not for the oil problem I would be giving this car very high ratings.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Lots of pros - very roomy, very safe, easy to handle, great gas mileage.

Cons: Excessive oil consumption - have to add a quart every 1400 miles.
