2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

For '09 Subaru showed it listened to its customers and Endowed the '09 Forester with many enhancements improving functionality, drivability and all around usefulness. The ride and handling match that of many Euros (which would be helpless on roads the Forester devours), and the interior flexibility make it roomy and versatile. The interior shows budget limitations w/ hard plastics, etc., but is better than before and NVH is substantially reduced. If you value functionality over style, the Forester outdoes its CSUV competition by a wide margin!

Favorite Features

Rides/Handles like good Euro, ample ground clearance, responsive turbo, comfortable seats, loads of room in back for passengers, AWD, good build quality.

Suggested Improvements

Hard plastic trim, mouse fuzz headliner, flimsy center console, Premium gas required, some badly fitting trim.
