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

Review

Pleasantly surprised on the fuel efficiency. So far I've averaged more than 26 mpg on every tank of gas and that is for mixed highway & city driving. (I'm still waiting for a hybrid or clean diesel from Subaru however). I was looking to purchase the new Outback Wagon, but decided on the new Forester because my husband actually fits comfortably (he's 6'4") and I liked the visibility. Overall I'm excited about the new car & happy with my purchase! I would recommend the Forester to a friend!

Favorite Features

Cargo space. The ride is smooth and quieter than expected. I know I'll be psyched about the all-wheel drive come winter. Love the manual transmission option & the large sun roof on the premium package.

Suggested Improvements

Side mirrors are too boxy, would be better if they were shorter & wider. Interior is boring and would be improved with more compartments for change & other knick-knacks. I wish it had more of the traditional & unique Subaru look I've come to love. I'm getting lost in the sea of mainstream SUVs.
