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

Review

This is my first Subaru and based on what I've seen so far it won't be my last. We had some pretty specific requirements for our next vehicle: A vehicle in which the whole family could fit including the dog. AWD (especially after this winter) Sunroof Manual. Not ugly. We looked at the Outback, RAV4 and CR- V and the Subaru beat the CR-V for real world driving. CR-V concerned me with part time AWD. RAV4 and Outback are more expensive with same options. The RAV4 actually has a 4x2 option? I also liked Subaru's dedication to safety. Side curtain air bags, active head restraints, roll over sensors and VDC all standard. There are a lot of extras in this SUV.

Favorite Features

We have not been on the highway once and we are averaging 26 MPG. I can see clearly out of all windows. 5-speed manual transmission (we like to drive our cars). Huge sun roof. Lots of cargo space. 8.8" of ground clearance. Avg gas mileage display

Suggested Improvements

Although the cloth seats are comfortable lumbar adjustment would be nice.
