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


I now have approx 35k miles in15 months. Decent average mpg, approx 25.5 overall. Too many rattles, particularly around moon roof sliding lid. Tires holding up real well so far. Radio "so so"

Best Features

large moonroof, great in snow

Worst Features

head system throws out a lot of heat, but very difficult to control if you want just a little. Too much or not enough. Same problem I had in 05 Outback. Should be dual zone one side passenger other side driver.
