"That should be the slogan: "Subaru Forrester, It's Just Fine" There is nothing really wrong with the car. It does handle the snow very well. It's just completely uninspired. If you are looking for reliable transportation in just about any climate, this might be the car for you. If you're looking for more in an automobile, keep looking. Mine had some transmission problems. It would wind up between first ans second and would slam into fourth."

Very versatile small SUV

Pros: "Love the AWD and good mileage (30 -32) cruising."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I bought it to tow behind a motor home and it has the towing hitch still installed on the front and tow bar available. I also wanted to be able to drive it off road. With the AWD, it does both very well and is also a great car for driving around town and shopping. Also has receiver hitch for towing a light utility trailer (2000 lb. capacity). It has manual transmission, very clean and non-smoker. I have had no problems with it at all and it's had regular service and oil changes."

Pros: "comfortable"

Cons: "not good back-up visibility."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Great turning ratio. Good visibility EXCEPT rear view mirrors much too big. They block vision from R & L at 4-corners. No need to have increased the size overall. 2008 was a perfect size. square back and wide vision in rear perfect. Won't own another because of the new curved and slanted rear-view windows. Too bed Subaru had to "follow the trend of poor rear visibility". Changed storage holes. They were perfect and now much lese useful."

Pros: "Is holding its value well, safe, great in snow"

Cons: "body integrity is its only flaw."

"I have had my 2009 Forester since it was new. Living in Colorado, one can expect any kind of weather, anytime. My Forester is ready to take on the worst of conditions. When others are slipping and sliding on ice and snow, my Forester keeps me safe and sound. It is fun to drive and easy to handle. Love the fold down seats when extra space is needed. The safety factor is what really sold me on the Subaru. I frequently transport twin grandchildren and want to know that they are riding in the safest car there is. Love my Suby!"
