Overall:

The battery was dead when I got to the dealership. The check engine light was on. The right window didn’t work and you couldn’t convince me it didn’t smell like cigarette smoke. The turbocharged engine worked great when you hit it but the usual driving felt a little sluggish.

2018 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Touring Review
Patty says:
Interior felt dated. The one thing I did like was the panoramic sunroof. I didnt like that you cant order the same roof rack system you get standard for the outback. Originally I felt like I could save money by getting a Subaru, but I feel like the small savings would not be worth it.

2018 Subaru Forester Review
GuruY5QS4 says:
I drove several smaller SUVs and found the Forester the best overall. I ended up purchasing after driving the CR-V, the RAV4, the Edge and Escape. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants a smaller SUV with the quietest ride and smoothest handling. AWD all the time!
