2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Premium Package 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This Forester has been in the shop more than my garage. The Climate control took 4 return visits before it was repaired. The seat fabric frayed at the edges right away. The seat covers were replaced. The brakes started failing around 14K miles. My wife was afraid to drive the car. The dealership replaced the master brake cylinder. The seats are not comfortable at all. They are very hard. My legs go numb driving and as a passenger in this car. We bought this without a trade in and thought we were getting a car that would last. I don't think so. There are many switches on the dash and they are confusing. I will never buy a Subaru again. This is my first and last

Best Features

The all wheel drive is good in snowy weather. It does get fairly good gas mileage. It has heated cloth seats. I do love this feature best.

Worst Features

The seats are too hard and very short in length. The cruise control pod turns with the steering wheel. It gets in the way of my knees. I am sure it will break off. Too much torque when pulling out from a stop. Hard to manage pulling out. The switches on the dash could be grouped better.
