2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
We purchased our 2010 Forester in Febuarary 2010 when our daughter was born. We mainly purchased it for safety and reliability. The vehicle was fun to drive and handled well. We were disappointed that the a/c compressor went out and even after being replaced continued to make a grinding noise and would quit blowing cold off and on. Dealership never was able to fix it. Also found that the seats were uncomfortable and fit and finish were lacking. We traded it off on a toyota, which we have owned several of and never had service problems with. Would not reccomend the forester.
Peppy engine and handling.
Better over all quality, fit and finish. Seating could be more comfortable. Could get better gas mileage.
