Review

Just purchased 09 turbo - forget the base - way underpowered, awful stereo. The turbo is a blast to drive, no lag at all! Punches holes in traffic. Amazing tight feel, great turning radius, better stereo - still not the greatest but not bad, perfect dog/hiking car. The best car for the rain - Seattle gets just a little rain - haha. Overall a really huge improvement over the last Forester and looks so much better, a very attractive car. Do not bother with the limited 3 grand for leather - Major rip off. Get the base turbo and be happy!

Favorite Features

Turbo, handling, nice ride, blue color, better hood scoop, well executed interior. Fun to drive!

Suggested Improvements

Mileage is avg. 17-could be better. Reg. gas would be nice. Seats are a little hard - but nothing a pad and sheepskins cant cure - that's what I did on my last Forester and those seats were really hard!
