Drivetrain needs update, but...
By zulualfa on


2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Love the solid feel of this vehicle. Well built. Put together well. As a six-footer, plus, lots of head and leg room. drivers seat could be a little more cushy, but not bad. Only complaint: only auto is 4-spd, so went for the five-speed manual, which leaves something to be desired. Very notchy. My Ford Ranger 5-spd is smoother. Love the little SUV.

Best Features

Its organization, feel and good mileage for an AWD.

Worst Features

Update the drive train. Move the Outback 6-cyl to Forester as an option - with 5-spd auto tranny.
