2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


wrote a review 8/10 after 1 mth ownership, gas smell was a mouse who had eaten the gas line! fixed-no repeats. 5/11-leaking from rear shoulder harness after a few days rain. seal on sunroof pulled loose & drain not connected. okay until this week - again leaking. two days in shop and they cannot recreate leak. my concern is about mold/mildew/rust in future. thinking about getting rid of it if dealer or Subaru won't do something. otherwise, I do love the Forester. great in snow/handles well/has improved to 22-23 MPG, mixed so not too bad. little "rough" til it warms up but after that, is quiet. seems to hold value in resale - at least at dealer.

Favorite Features

know the cup holders are "weird" but I honestly like them! big enough to accommodate large drink cups... or lots of stuff. Fog lights - heated seats - sun roof. accommodated an assembled 4 burner grill after purchasing - was impressed. uses regular gas- previous car used premium.

Suggested Improvements

hate, hate, hate the head rests! they slant too far forward. just cannot find a comfortable position for long no matter how much I adjust the head rest and the seat. interior materials look/feel cheap. controls for heated seats could be in better location. better radio/sound system and positioning of speakers.
