2008 Subaru Forester Wagon Sports 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Drives like a dream and holds to the road well. Drove the WV mountains back roads and had a blast. Many curves and a lot of up and down hill travel. Good mileage, 29 mpg on this trip. Hope to do better on flat ground. Still breaking the car in.


Best Features

Mileage and the cargo space.


Worst Features

None at this time.

Review

Had my doubts as to how refined the Forester would be coming from an '02 Infiniti G20. But I was pleasantly surprised by the solidity and finish of this vehicle. The size is just right for our soon-to-be 3-person household and the volume of the trunk cargo area is very useful. The fabric of the seats seems very durable, interior plastics are of reasonably high quality, and the dark gray color us nice. Visibility is excellent and the turning radius is nice-n-tight for in-city driving/parking (trust me, this does matter). The stereo speakers could use a little more low end oomph, road noise is bit loud, and the seats are not as comfortable as our Infititi but otherwise we love our new Subie.


Best Features

Exterior size and shape, alloy wheels, leather steering wheel/shifter/hand brake, solidity, all-wheel drive, storage capacity, CD changer, seat fabric, visibility, turning radius, projected reliability, dealer experience, large side mirrors, compass.


Worst Features

A little more leg room in rear, reduce road noise, better stock stereo speakers, make front/rear disc brakes standard on all models.
