Tired of squeeky brakes
By Greg on


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


This is our first Subaru and we have enjoyed the car so far. The car sticks to the road in rainy conditions, just as other Subaru owners told us. This is a definite plus. We are currently getting 29 mpg on the highway. We have a self imposed speed limit of 62-63 on interstate. which is why the mpg increased from 26 at 70-75 mph on trips.The major problem we have is with the rear drum brakes. They have squeeked for many months. The dealer states that this is an ongoing problem with the Forester, and Subaru has not found a remedy. We are thinking of trading up to one with disk brakes. I recommend to everyone thinking of buying a Forester. Add rear disk brakes to your requirement.

Best Features

The AWD feature has kept us confidently safe in terrible weather conditions.

Worst Features

Rear disk brakes on all Foresters, not just the the select few models.
