Solid car--not splashy
By slydog39 on


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


I bought this Forester used several months ago.
I have driven 8500 miles.
Here are a few observations:

It is obvious the car is well built and, if maintained, will be around a long time.

The mileage is fair.
Hwy is 26.2
City is 21.5

The all wheel drive gives a nice feel in tight turns and in wet weather.
The engine has some pep, but I do not use it as a sports car.

The interior is somewhat spartan or utilitarian.
It will not be mistaken for a luxury car.
It is all functional.
The seats are comfortable, but not for extremenly long travels.

Best Features

All wheel drive. Boxer style engine

Worst Features

more and better cupholders.
