Stopped at the local dealer to just to look at the new Foresters but after a brief test drive I was hooked. I traded in my full size pick up a day later on the new 09 Forester 2.5X with the premium package. The handling is sporty and the ride is smooth. The fit and finish impeccable, much better then the truck. The headlights are very bright on high and really light up the road. The automatic transmission shifts smooth and is well geared. Theres tons of interior space and very comfortable seating. The huge moon roof is a nice feature it nearly extends all the way to the back seats.Power windows and key less entry are standard even on the base models. Oh and the gas mileage is awesome!
17" Alloy rims, dual exhaust, moon roof, steering wheel radio controls, tinted windows, comfy seats, it's a PZEV
Fog lights, exhaust tips and remote start standard on the premium editions would be nice. Also more choices of interior colors.
