2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I would best describe the Forester as a "nice" automobile. It does everything well, but nothing outstanding (which is not a knock on it). It seats five, pulls a small trailer, can handle dirt roads and snow, usable large storage area, good visibility, good highway manners, etc. A very solid vehicle.
AWD system is worry-free. Nice, simple exterior look. Functional interior. Good combined mileage (24.5-26.5 MPG).
Stereo is underpowered. Speaker rattle from passenger door. Should raise the passenger side seat.
