2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X L.L.Bean Edition 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


The Forester handles well at all speeds. It is peppy and climbs hills well especially when in sport mode. Is relatively quiet. The gas mileage has been good so far. I got 28-30mpg driving speeds around 55-65. Cabin is both roomy and comfortable, except for passengers seat. Visability is excellent

Best Features

Dash display lighting at night, daytime running lights, heated windshield and seats, power seat adjustments for driver's seat

Worst Features

Rear door release inside car, relocate heated seats control, upgrade stereo sound, get outside XM antenna mount, tint sunroof window darker, use less plastic on the interior dash better cup holder design, cover for small items on console, lumbar and seat height for passenger seat.
