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

Review

I bought this car for 2 reasons 1. Head room,I'm 6'5 2. AWD Over all happy but a few issues to note 1.The car has an uncanny ability to suck in the exhaust from other vehicles, and it has nothing to do with the in cabin filter. 2.The design of the front seats. As the driver its almost impossible to reach under the seat to grab anything, and there is a cable that runs directly from the underbelly of the seat to the ground that eliminates passage. The passenger seat sits so low that even I feel like a kid in a car(I'm 6'5) 4.Rattles. have fun going back and forth to the dealer getting all the rattles in the body panels shored up while under warranty 5.Transmission issues at 70K mi 6.Sterio

Favorite Features

Head Room AWD Can take this baby anywhere, and i do!

Suggested Improvements

1.This care sucks so much exhaust in it literally makes me nauseated at times. It can even suck external exhaust when its raining? And no, I'm not an overly sensitive guy 2.The seats are not comfortable for anyone Im 6'5 my wife is 4'11 we both want to get aftermarket seats, especially the head rests! 3.Improved Warranty 4.Improve quality of interior to eliminate rattling 5.Improve sterio
