I spent two years getting out of credit card debt, and saving up for my Subaru. I knew I wanted a Subaru because of the safety features, and high reliability. I looked at a few other brands. But I found that the Forester was not only the highest rated, but because more equipment comes standard, it was the best value. Some companies charge over $3K for AWD, and even $1K extra for side airbags! My 2010 model is very comfortable, the most comfortable car I have ever sat in. There is lots of room for both passengers and cargo. And the hidden storage area under the cargo pad is perfect for keeping the rest of the cargo ready at all times. Highly recommended to anyone who needs utility and fun!
Fun to drive. Great visibility. Stable in turns. Lots of space. Comfortable. Huge moonroof.
Improved GPS standard- Center armrest material could be more durable, and some of the dash materials could be more scratch resistant. A hybrid model would be welcomed.
