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


We purchased two 2010 Forester XT Ltd. w/Nav. My wife and I each have roughly 2000 miles on our Foresters. It's only been a little over three months, but we are very pleased with our Foresters. Our first test drive was in an X Premium model which we would have bought, but then we drove the XT. The trade-off of slightly lower gas mileage is easily forgotten when you step on the throttle. Visibility is excellent, and the ride is comfortable and quiet. The Forester has very good road manners, although, a stiffer rear sway bar is in order to reduce some of the body roll. Pot holes and road imperfections are no problem as the suspension soaks them up easily. Great car. Excellent value!

Best Features

Turbo charged engine. 27 MPG Hwy. Panoramic Sunroof. Sporty styling. Navigation/Bluetooth/iPod interface/graphical display. Leather heated seats. Ride comfort. Ample cargo area. Headlights. Fit and finish.

Worst Features

Raise the height of the front passenger's seat or make it height adjustable. Better sounding factory radio. A little less body roll.
