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


Decided to buy a Subaru after owning 3 Hondas and 3 Toyotas. Moved to the top of a very steep "second gear up" hill 2 years ago and wanted AWD. Have had the Forester for 2 months and the quality seems to be quite good. Snow season passed prior to purchase, but have driven my sister's 2007 Forester in the snow and it was a transcendent experience. Handles well in corners and on highway. Highway MPG is about 28. Engine isn't a powerhouse during hill-climbing around town, but no complaint here with such good MPG figures.

Best Features

AWD, moonroof, funky dual exhaust notes.

Worst Features

Quality of interior fabric and headliner could be much better, but cheesy interior fabric seems to be a Subaru hallmark.
