Overall:

A feature-rich vehicle with an excellent safety profile. Recommended, but close attention to service records is crucial. A prime weakness is in the durability of the touch screen.

2016 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Premium Review
MiguelXT says:
Just recently bought my wife a 2016 forester xt because she really likes my 2008 forester xt sports. And she loves it, I love it, it has a good decent amount of power and handles really well. Theres plenty of room to load up 5 people and a bunch of stuff in the rear hatch and just go. The interior is beautiful with leather and cloth accents all around, the exterior looks semi aggressive but still a grocery getter. My only problem with it is that Subaru should have made them with a 6 speed instead of a CVT transmission. They come with a manual mode for you to shift on your own but with the CVT when you go to shift it has some lag in it being that its computerized. But overall I personally love it it drives great and it looks good what more could you ask for.

Would Buy Ranked 2008 Subaru Forester Sports 2.5XT better.
"I would buy a 2008 forester xt sports over any newer forester xt because of the manual transmission you cant beat being able to shift when you want over this new technology that shifts for you. "
