2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
2009 Subaru Forester 2.5 X, Auto. This is my first Subaru. While I really like my AWD wagon. Subaru needs to up their game. The drivers seat has broken twice in less than 4000 miles. It took two weeks to get a new frame. A long time. Tech stated that Subaru has known about this problem for awhile. Yet they gave me another seat frame that broke in about one week. I am now waiting for another seat frame. Why couldn't I buy a drivers power seat without spending $4000 extra. Now I wish I had. This may be last Subaru.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive, parks easy, good gas mileage, great visibility. Large back seat. Great headroom.
Suggested Improvements
Fix lousy seat frames, Raise passenger seat up, Add 2 inches of rear seat travel, make privacy glass standard on all models, make adding fog lites a simple plug in instead of a $400 job changing Headlamp stalk. Add a fifth gear to automatic transmission, and a diesel option with an automatic trans.
