2009 Subaru Forester 2.5XT Limited 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC, Nav (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

Apparently the 2009 2.5 liter turbo engine has some metallurgic problems. Our engine began making loud banging sounds on a road trip after just 4,000 miles on it. Worked fine prior to this catastrophic breakdown. Subaru will be replacing the engine with hopefully a correctly produced engine.

Favorite Features

AWD, Night lights, sunroof, puddle lamps, navigation computer, easy fold down seats.

Suggested Improvements

Adjustable headrests for forward rear tilt. Better placed seat heater controls. More powerful sound system. Reliable engine.
