It puts the sport back in
sport/utility. A blast to drive in the
mountains. A reliable car to take to
the ski basin. It turned the white-
knuckle road up to Ski Apache above
Ruidoso, NM into a fun drive. The
Subaru Forester is in its natural
element on an undulating, winding
mountain road. And it eats up the
Interstate miles with comfort and good
fuel economy, while exhibiting plenty
of power for hills and passing.
Quick steering. Plenty of pep. All-
wheel Drive assurance.
Wish there was a bit more room when you
have kids. Back seat is a bit too
close to the front seats.
Next time I am buying the Forrester but
with leather. Seats could be a vit
more comfortable, but plenty of "cubby"
holes to stash stuff...
Tilt steering is very poor!
1. Full spare tire
2. All Wheel Drive in snow is superior
3. Cubby holes every where
4. handles well
This is the first Subaru I have
puchased.The comment I find myself
making to anyone who asks, is; I love
the car, I just wish there was a little
more leg room up front. If the drivers
front seat track would slide back a
least another inch or so, I would be
completely satisfied. It is the only
thing that comes up short for me. I am
6'1" and anyone that is any smaller
than this will probably not be
affected. In all other respects, I am a
very satisfied owner. It holds a lot
more cargo than you think with
outstanding visibility all the way
around for the driver. The auto
transmission is smooth and predictable.
The engine has great pickup and
economical as well. I typically get 26-
Standard features on the base model
were excellent. Interior headroom is
More front leg room for the driver. If
it comes at the expense of the rear
seat passenger, so be it. I rarely
carry passengers in the back seat and I
can easily slide the seat up to make
them more comfortable for the times
that I do.
