2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/Premium Pkg,VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This is my first Subaru, we like it, is roomy, has good handling and stability. The ride is good. It had the same rattling noises everyone is complaining about. The door noise is caused by a plastic cover behind the doors panel; just take the door panel out and put some insulating material and that's fixed. Once in a while I do get some rattling in the dash area and in the cargo area. Having some A/C issues with the a/c clutch engaging and disengaging at blower speed 1. Also, the A/C Clutch is very noisy. Trying to get this fixed with the dealer. Overall is a good family vehicle.

Best Features

Huge moonroof/sunroof, handles very well, safety, and awd capabilities.

Worst Features

The passenger seat needs to be higher, it is too low. Fix the rattling noises, Subaru needs to have a NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) team to deal with this problem. Fix the a/c problems. Add a CVT transmission or a 5 speed automatic Trans.
