Weak Windshields
By emily on


2007 Subaru Forester Sports 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Yes, windshield(s). In 2009, after owning the car for two years, driving the car on the highway, there is a crack in the windshield. Replaced the windshield and a year later in August 2010, driving car on the highway and there is a crack again. Had a Toyota Corolla from 1994-2006 and the car hood flew up into the windshield on the highway and there were ZERO cracks on the windshield. What is wrong with Subaru's windshields or window frame? It shouldn't crack so easily against rocks flying around on the highway. It's the highway, there is always going to be loose rocks. Perplexed.

Best Features

AWD, great in the Chicago snow and winters. Visibility through the windows in the car are great. Can see everything.

Worst Features

Needs for leg room in the back and needs more room in the front arm and leg areas, also improve the windshield problem.
