All of Subaru's vehicles, including my model the Forester, has the highest ratings for safety and they are all all wheel drive allowing drivers to travel just about anywhere despite the weather/road conditions without having to mess with switching from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive. All wheel drive makes it a breeze to drive and is more efficient.
I love how my vehicle is all wheel drive and allows me to travel on just about any road despite the conditions. I also love how roomy it is as I can fit 3 kids in the back with one in a car seat and another in a booster seat. I also love the fact that my vehicle is one of the safest vehicles made. That is very important. Any complaints I have would be that you need to buy snow tires for newer versions of the Forester to get up gravel roads covered in ice. My dad has a older Forester and he can travel on icy roads without a problem. Subaru changed the engine of the Forester and now it doesn't have as much power as the older ones did. That is my only complaint about my vehicle.
