2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


For the price you get a compact wagon with good all-wheel drive system. All there is is the all-wheel drive system. Rest of the car could as well be a KIA or FIAT or worse. Interior plastics smell like a VCR and are probably made from the same material. Hard plastics everywhere. Rattles, rattles and rattles. The car fells like a $10k compact or a cheap rental. Ride quality is good on flat terrain but the car begins to float on hills and around curves. It does very well on gravel and rough surface. Did you know that for only $2k more you can buy the VW Tiguan? Test drive one before you buy the Forester.

Best Features

Heated windshield, good all wheel drive system.

Worst Features

Better sounding stereo, Interior quality, stiffer suspension, transmission, interior plastics again.
