Reviewed: 2009 Subaru Forester

4dr SUV 170-horsepower 2.5L H4 4-speed shiftable automatic AWD

Why the 2009 Subaru Forester?


Mostly the AWD system, the best of any SUV that I have driven. Also, the new suspension is great at smoothing out the road, steering is tight.

Fuel economy

I am getting 27.5 mpg with 60% town driving, the rest in hilly country. Very impressed, and the car is not even broken in yet.

Safety & braking

5 star safety ratings, great emergency handling.

Why Not the 2009 Subaru Forester?

Interior styling

Cheap looking and feeling plastic.

Audio & nav systems

Even in the upscale Limited which I have, sound is only average. Nav system is overpriced for what you get, forget it.
