2009 Subaru Forester 2.5XT 4dr SUV AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Up until this June I have owned Jeeps. Always 4x4 or AWD and never figured I would drive anything "non- American". With gas going higher I had to get something newer and found this new Subie to be fantastic in MPG and fun. I never believed that anything could be so much fun to drive and still be a SUV. It has plenty of room, 9 inches of ground clearance, handles like a sports car and rides like a Cadillac. It has made me a believer and a fan. If everything I have read about this and previous Subarus is true, I will enjoy driving this one for a very long time.

Best Features

I don't know where to start except at the top. I love the ginormous sunroof! I love the VDC! It screams around corners as well as straight roads! Outstanding!

Worst Features

The one improvement I can think of would be to make the subwoofer standard instead of optional. It sounds good, just needs a little "kick".
