Disappointing Experience
By Jason Tylers on

Vehicle

2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this car new and loved it at first. Within the first year the sunroof malfunctioned and would take several attempts to close. End of year 1 door lock broke. Year two car began leaking in the rain. End of year two engine light came on and car has spent more time in the shop than on the road. Subaru has not been able to fix the problem. At this point I am forced to consider legal options. I will never buy another Subaru again.

Favorite Features

Great handling, fun to drive, fantastic power.

Suggested Improvements

Build quality is poor, reliability has been very disappointing for a car of this price.
