Review

Evidently this is a systemic problem with Foresters. I sure do wish Edmunds had told me that before I plunked down $25K on this car. Anywho... Now I'm stuck with a $5K repair on a car that's barely six years old with 65K miles. Never again, Subaru.

2010 Subaru Forester SUV 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Despite all the hypes out there, I am very disappointed with our Forester. Runs well and icy and snowy roads here in Calgary, but the customer care is mediocre to say the least, and we've had series of issues after our first maintenance. Suffice to say, we went back to the dealer for repairs other than regular maintenance at least five times in the last four years. That's a lot considering this is a brand new car. My 2003 Toyota Echo has been a much better value for us for $10K less than our Forester.
We will sell ours shortly, and will not go back to Subaru again. (sorry sis... she works for Fuji Heavy Industries in Japan)


Best Features

Runs well on ice and snow.


Worst Features

Parts seem very cheap.

Review

I have had 3 Subarus. The plain old vanilla Legacy sedan was by far the best of the bunch (2008). The Outback Limited (2007) was pretty close behind. The Forester was one of the poorest vehicles I have drive. You can not sit in these seats for more than 2 hours. This problen goes back at least 10 years. My first encounter with a Forester (2000) was in the same quality seats. If you wan't to shuttle around the city than this can be overlooked but
for any distance driving look elsewhere.

Review

Bought my subaru in May 2010 - put 22,000 miles on it over the past 6 months -- 2500 where I was towing at the maximum capacity.
I could not be happier with the performance.
The seats could be more comfy, and yes - the cup holders absolutely suck (I was told by a guy in the service department to use a strip of foam-works pretty well). It's a great car at a great price - just wish they offered the leather interior w/the 5-speed!


Worst Features

Offering leather interior w/the 5-speed. Cup Holders that actual hold your cup.
