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


AWD is flawless. Pulls my boat out of water with ease!! Quiet interior at 70 mph. I tried several small SUVs, none drove in a solid controlled way. It challenges my BMW 323. With 3000 miles, I'm averaging 26 mpg total, includes 60% city/40% highway. Pulls utility trailer with ease. Simple interior controls are breath of fresh air.

Best Features

Comfortable seats, passenger seat could be higher. AWD is well done!! MPG very acceptable, simple interior controls, excellent space with rear seats down. Nice compass, temp and mileage display. Love this vehicle!!

Worst Features

Body sounds hollow when closing doors, 17" wheels should be available without buying a package same with fog lights, interior display lights could be brighter during day driving.
