2012 Subaru Forester SUV 2.5X Premium PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

When it comes to finding a small AWD wagon with a sunroof and manual transmission, there are only two choices. One is the Jeep Patriot, but that car had some quality control issues that I'm not sure were overcome, plus it looks like a toaster on wheels. The Forester fits the bill - not too fancy, not too plain, just right! There is plenty of room for full sized people. The black fabric on the seats and doors has subtle copper colored accents that add a nice look. You get easy entry and exit due to the large doors and seat height. Once behind the wheel it drives sporty with very few blind spots, and the huge sunroof brings in the great outdoors!


Favorite Features

Solid AWD reputation Bluetooth hands-free phone & audio Extra large sunroof Shifter and clutch are light and easy to use Lots of customization options All weather mats mean you don't have to wipe your feet every time you get in


Suggested Improvements

Doors are a bit thin and tinny sounding FM radio sound quality is sub-par Sliding center armrest slides too easily
