2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
My first Subaru and a pretty decent car overall, but some shortcomings. Brakes had to be adjusted for shuddering after purchase & now squeal at 12000 mi. Engine makes a variety of strange noises I have never heard in another vehicle. "Normal" says the dealer. A/T is sometimes rough; the dealer has advised me of a service bulletin which will hopefully cure the problem. Road noise is pronounced.
Favorite Features
Good ride, excellent handling, turns on a dime. 4 cyl is plenty peppy. AWD drive is a benefit even here in FL. Gas mileage is a real pleasant surprise-26.5 mpg in mixed driving. Simple guage and control layout is most appreciated. Manual driver seat is unexpectedly comfortable.
Suggested Improvements
Interior storage is not as good as it first appears-needs more cubbies and pockets. There is only one rear coat hook over the driver side rear door on the base X, which precludes hanging a clothes bar. Need to improve initial mechanical build quality & install disc brakes all around. Soundproofing.
