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

Review

This is our family's 3rd Subaru. Traded in a 2008 Forester that we loved for its ruggedness, reliability, AWD, and safety but needed more rear leg room as 2nd child is on the way. Got a steal of deal on the transaction and could not be happier with our new 2010 Forester. It's just the right size inside but still has a compact exterior that is easy to maneuver. The interior is well laid out and all body components are tightly built. Yes, we have a couple of rattles hear and there but nothing overly annoying. Be careful of the light grey interior (might get dirty fast). Overall, this is not a particularly luxurious vehicle but is still solid, safe, and very reliable. Can't beat it for value.

Favorite Features

Exterior size, reliability track record, interior and exterior styling, AWD, safety and crash test ratings, handling, ride quality, tight turning circle (very important BTW) visibility, ground clearance, leg room, rugged suspension for crossover, overall simplicity.

Suggested Improvements

Better stock stereo speakers (make separate tweeters std at least), less hard plastic surfacing on the dash, 5- sp auto, slightly higher front passenger seat, improve fuel economy (again, 5-sp auto), make rear cargo cover standard, refine interior joint areas to reduce rattles, add LED tail lights.
