Fantastic car, but needs rear legroom
By Mike on

Vehicle

2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Premium Package 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

We bought this car because we needed extra room for a new baby which would be born a few months later. When we bought it we loved just about everything about it. The ride is terrific, the moonroof is the biggest I've seen, the climate control is great. Once we had our baby, we were in for a big surprise - the rear seats are terrible for infant car seats! I tried putting the new infant seat in behind the driver seat (our older daughter's seat is behind the passenger) and the only way it would fit was if I moved the seat so far forward and so far upright that it was no longer comfortable to drive. So now the infant seat is behind the passenger so the passenger will have to suffer.

Favorite Features

Steering, handling, moonroof, heated seats, climate control, design, storage room in rear. Overall this is a great car for people without little kids.

Suggested Improvements

If the front seats were designed differently or there was more room in the back, then infant car seats would better fit in the back seats. This is a very big problem that Subaru should address. Also that seatbelt chime is very annoying, like the other reviews say.
