Durable, safe, and can take on most terrains!

my car is great for my rural area. it is really good in the winter being that It's 4 wheel drive. I can drive into almost anything and get out. It is a very safe car for the family. Biggest downfall is lack of space at this point. My three kids are really big and I need an SUV. No one can move.

- Jessi B

Subaru small but mighty great car.

Great turning radius, small car but big inside. Love the heated seats and the fact that I am up high instead of close to ground. When it gets old enough it does require some maintenance and will start to lag when picking up. Only had one major issue with the battery but resolves easily.

- Cheryl H

Long lasting and durable work horse.

The car is a workhorse. It's lasted almost 19 winters and is still running strong. The only thing that it suffers from is rust from the winter in very common places across all subaru foresters of it's time. Other than that the thing is running strong still after almost 2 decades
