Wouldn't Buy Another One!
By Arpy on
Vehicle2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewPROS: AWD, handling, simple controls, gas mileage. Getting 25 mpg, city/hwy. CONS: Lousy brakes, engine noises, road noise, ride quality, cheap interior materials, depreciation. Brakes have squealed and shuddered since new, despite 4 dealer visits (no, I don't ride the brakes). Motor exhibits a variety of rattles and clanks, dealer says "normal." Road noise is so pronounced on hwy, have to blast radio to hear it. Ride is rough at any speed. Seat fabric, carpet, headliner all cheap; driver seat began wearing immediately after purchase. Lastly, Subaru unkindly introduced '09 Forester in the middle of the '08 model year which trounced the value of mine. Going back to Toyota.
Best FeaturesSurprisingly good gas mileage. Nice tight turning circle; handling almost sporty. Simple controls, user friendly.
Worst FeaturesEverything else. Supposedly the '09 is a much better vehicle, but based on this one, I won't take the plunge.
