The best small true SUV yet!
By John in Pacific NW on


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


This totally redesigned 2010 Forester is much better than any of the other Subaru designs to date, and miles ahead of the older and dated designs of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The double wishbone suspension gives this Subie a supple quiet ride with superb controlled handling, even with over 8 inches of ground clearance. The outstanding outward vision and seating position is much better the competition. The high torque engine provides 2400 lb trailer pulling capacity which is much higher than most of the competition, and something I needed. Last, but not least, the safety features and crash tests scores are excellent for the 2010 Forester.

Best Features

Superb Handling,even on rough roads. Best AWD on the market. Comfortable, but controlled supple ride. Excellent seating position with outstanding outward vision. High ground clearance. Body styling is clean and classy, not overdone. Large roof rack. Large sunroof! Recling rear seat comfort and room

Worst Features

Improved gas mileage. Upgrade some of the plastic interior parts. Put a light in the glove box and the vanity mirrors. Move the heated seat controls to a better, more accessible position. Improve the layout and look of the instrument panel with less idiot lights. The old Subaru panels were better.
