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

Review

Finally a car with enough headroom without sitting on the ground! I'm 6'5 and I sit with the seat straight up and my head does not hit the ceiling. Wife is 4'11 and passenger seat is way too low. Before you buy know this, 09 foresters have been consistently having rattling problems. No fix in sight other than tearing out the interior and doing a custom job. By rattling I mean pull your hair out mad that your new car sounds like rattling. Am totally shocked by this but wow the headroom.

Suggested Improvements

Rattling!!! OH MY GOD IT'S HORRIBLE! The stereo is really bad. The sound is so off I'm limited as to which albums I can listen to. The highs and lows are all messed up and you can't alter the dynamics enough to make it better. Passenger looks like a little kid from outside they sit so low.
