Nice truck but my last Subaru
By mike on


2010 Subaru Forester 2.5XT Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Bought my first subaru in 2001 and it was perfect, rock solid till the day I sold it last week. The new replacement a XT sure looks nice BUT... Rattles something fierce and all over. The headlights wont work sometimes (had to shut the truck off and restart to get it working) windows software maybe?? The drivetrain makes bad noises when turning and the turbo (maybe) made a bad squealing sound for miles you first start the truck. I figured its under warranty let it blow up. The rear window for some reason wants to open with no one pushing buttons. The heater works in reverse. Have a small book for repairs. Will I buy another Subaru - I think Not. Too bad I didn't keep my old model, my fault.

Best Features

Love the looks of the outside, just dont start it.

Worst Features

quality is job one. Fix the rattles, get rid of the cheap plastic interior that scratches permanently (with a light touch of your fingernail). Fix the electrical and drivetrain. Maybe I got a lemon but not good.
