2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Subaru 2.5x Special Edition. I bought the 2010 Forester based on safety ratings and reliable all wheel drive. It drives great in heavy rain. The interior is roomy enough for a tall 6'3" man to fit comfortably front and back. The cargo area has an outlet for a fan and fits the dog and dog bed perfectly. Like the other reviews mentioned, you hear road noise. I had my non-Subaru mechanic take it for a spin & he said it was because the engine itself is so quiet. The interior fixings aren't great, but the car was about 10k less than what most of my friends have paid for American SUVs. Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase and hope to keep the car 10- 12 years.

Best Features

Large cargo area. Lots of leg room. Multiple outlets. Minimal to no blind spots.

Worst Features

Better cloth seats. Ability for driver seat to go higher. Door arm rests that are horizontal because arms can't actually rest on them the way they are now. Door lock automatically when engine starts.
