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


Rather "tinny". Presently have an 09 Impreza and 07 Legacy in household in addition to the 2010 Forester. The Forester is by far the poorest quality of the 3. Legacy is just a tank. Real nice to drive. Very tight! Great car! So is Impreza. It appears to us that the quality in workmanship exhibited in the Legacy is absent in the Forester. The rattles (door and ceiling in our case) are truly annoying. The dealer seems to be at a lost when trying to pinpoint the cause and is unaware of these complaints that appear to be quite common with this model and documented on numerous internet sites. When paying in the 30- 35 K range these are things that must not occur. Plan to trade in the next year

Best Features

Cargo space is very good for the size. Value for price is good excluding rattle issue

Worst Features

More continuous quality improvement is required by the manufacturer for this model. Quality of workmanship needs big improvement. Adjustable passenger seat a must as std equipment
