For a 2010 model SUV, this vehicle is lacking some basic features other vehicles in its class have. Comfortable driving position is one. The driver position is awkward with all the plastic parts sticking out reaking havoc on leg pain. Blue-tooth, the horrible sound system even with the circle sound on and the lack of auto on headlights. I enjoy the quality the subaru brand projects and thus far reliability is number 1. I have yet to get over 23 MPG even driving highway everyday. If your wanting to buy this vehicle its offroad ability is great, but the luxury interior is just not there! I don't have any rattling but considering the forester is mostly plastics I know its coming.
AWD was amazing in KC's horrible winter. The heated seats, panoramic roof and steering wheel mounted audio controls work well.
Auto on and off headlights, 5/6 speed transmission, quality audio system with subwoofer standard, rear air vents, More dash features: How many miles left on the tank, exact mpg not an average, exact tire that shows low pressure not one dummy light, diagram of which door is open not one dummy light.
