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

Review

My first Subaru after 2 years of deciding on the 'do it all' vehicle. The perfect vehicle for the commuting outdoorsman. Sport/Utility defines the Forester very well (why don't they officially classify it as such?). The Forester is a rolling swiss army knife (pardon the metaphor). It can do so much so well, and do it safely. Reliable, spirited, great handling, ultra safe, very roomy, best AWD on the market, just as good off as on road. Equipped excellently on the base model, step up a notch and add the all weather package (recommended). Huge sunroof/moonroof, practically makes it feel like a convertible.

Favorite Features

Excellent Gas Mileage, Handling Heated Seats, Mirrors, Wipers, 5spd great power with standard boxer, Standard mud/snow rated Yokohamas, Room to spare, Interior built to get dirty (and to be cleaned) most reviewers miss this (huh!), Off Road more capable than most drivers, Durable and Reliable

Suggested Improvements

Stereo sound could be better (stock stereo) but it works fine. Passenger front seat could use more adjustments. Be nice if telescoping steering wheel were standard. Subaru should offer upgrade options for standard boxer engine (cold air intake etc).
