2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/Premium Pkg,VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This being my first SUV, comming from an Aerostar van, I couldn't believe how fun it was to drive. Tight circles, merged right into traffic, sat high, could see all around me, and the leg room was wonderful. Plenty of room for my two teenagers in the back. Cool blue lights accenting cup holders in back, also.

Best Features

Moon roof is so large, love the feeling of openess. Gas mileage is 27mpg so far. Going thru snow storms there is a sense of security that is pricless. It really hugs the road. The seats are very firm, yet comfortable.

Worst Features

I would recomend the passenger side front seat have the capability to raise and lower like the drivers seat. If the arm rest would lock when pulled forward, that would be nice, too.
