Truly A Practical SUV
By dave128 on


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


I'm 6'5" and fit rather nicely with the seat lowered fully. Pre-2009 models were not as roomy. I actually fit in the back seat fairly well. More comfortable than my 07 Accord. Visibility is great. Averaging 22 mpg the first week. The interior is very functional. The AC is definitely NOT weak. I drive in a rather hilly region and the Forester handles the roads with ease. Turbo would have been real overkill (as well as a higher insurance premium).

Best Features

Interior lighting is nice. A tiny overhead blue LED illuminates the center console area at night. The radio is quite decent. It shows station names, song artist and title. The auto dimming rear view mirror & compass really do work like they're supposed to. Makes night driving a lot more tolerable.

Worst Features

Better speakers. A real temperature gauge rather than the idiot light. Fuel gauge is too big, wasted panel space. Combine the ignition key and remote control.
