It out-performs and gives me more satisfaction than all the other cars I've had before, including several Mercedes-Benzes, a Cadillac, Lincoln, Volvo, and Nissan. It has smooth handling, a great braking system, realistic road feel with its suspension, and excellent cargo space. The roomy interior is well-thought out with 8! cup holders, many storage areas, and just an overall superior design to those "luxury" cars. My wife, my adult daughter and I are in love with our Forester.
Subaru's Boxer engine, AWD!, and active head restraints (to prevent whiplash). All of its safety features are what makes me confident when driving this car. Even for a base model, Subaru doesn't skimp on technology and safety.
Better material for the carpet - it's a bit thin. We fixed that problem by putting another layer of auto carpet on top, all for a few bucks.
