Solidly built SUV with ease of comfort, driving ability and design.

Due to certain physical disabilities, I not only needed a car that felt comfortable driving, but also was a bit higher up from the ground. This means I needed a car I could step up into, rather than one that sits low to the ground. My Subaru forester accommodated me perfectly in this regard. The outside appearance and shape of the car is very aesthetically pleasing. The windows are large to make backing up very easy to see all angles. The tires that came with the car were extremely good quality, providing a very smooth ride. The trunk space accommodates a large capacity of various items for the average family, to make shopping supplies easy to load and unload. This car is great for road trips and the trunk alone was able to contain suitcases etc. for up to 4 adults. The inside of the car is also beautiful, provides perfect visibility and has many various features. The sound system (radio, CD player) are extremely good. The car is extremely comfortable to drive and for all passengers sitting in the front, as well as the back. This is a very solid feeling car. I have driven many different makes and models of cars and this car is by far the best I have ever owned. I highly recommend this car to everyone, if it is within your budget. The overall quality is exceptional.

Love both our Subaru Foresters!

One of the things I love most about this car is the comfort. The seats are adjustable in multiple ways, and the height of the cabin makes the interior feel roomier than it is. I needed an all wheel drive vehicle, and had a Subaru before that I loved. I bought mine new, but when we needed to buy a used car for my husband to drive, we actually looked specifically for the same make and model because it met all our needs and we knew that it would last. We have a steep driveway and live near a lot of hills, with long snowy winters. This car handles bad weather and hills better than any other car we have owned. The gas mileage is pretty good too, and very close to what the dealership advertises. I put about 60,000 miles a year on my vehicle and have over 145,000 miles on it with no major mechanical issues. I also tried other Subaru models, but I felt the Forester had a smoother, less truck-like, more car-like feel to it, and was a good value. I plan to drive both our Subaru Foresters into 200,000+ miles before we visit the Subaru dealership again!

Hatch dangerous if piston goes

I love the way my vehicle drives, get me through the snow in the winter BUT right from day one we have had issues with the car. We picked it up and it was noisy, rattling, they said they repacked the dash but didn't make much of a difference. Then we had to replace brakes about 3 times now, apparently due to the dust on our roads!! We have also replaced the wheel bearings 5 times. The right back tire has gone flat 3 times, twice while driving down the highway, (new tire each time). On the weekend a piston went on the back hatch. I was going into it to get my mothers wheel chair out but my husband spoke to me and I backed up, thank God, as it slammed down so fast, it could have broken my back or even killed me. Needless to say we are not at all happy and I think it is time to ditch this vehicle and find something else. AND it is rusting around the doors even though we paid to have that rust protection package put on the car.

Subaru forester pros. The power and responsive steering is there for me.

I like the Subaru forester for several reasons. First of all, it has a lot of pick up when needed to pass other vehicles, plus very responsive handling. It also has comfortable seats and an appealing overall body look. It gets great gas mileage and has had no mechanical problems. There are also several things I do not like about the forester. Some of the interior materials are less than quality, especially the carpeting and the cloth seats. The carpeting is easily worn looking and so are the seats in areas where wear is more prominent. Another problem is dirt and leaves seem to collect in door cracks and along the windshield below the wipers. It is sometimes a chore to keep the vehicle clean in those areas.

Roomiest ride of its class

When I was shopping a new vehicle I was set on the CR-V after looking at the new model I didn't like it at all. I did some research and learned that Subaru was rated a good safe vehicle. I looked at the Forester and loved it. I have been driving this car for 5 years and when I'm ready for a new car again I'm going with the Forester again. The roominess inside the vehicle is unlike any other I have been in. The ride is smooth and handles so well on the road. I absolutely love my car. The gas mileage is also fantastic, again unlike many others of the same class. I would highly recommend this vehicle.

I hope that my Subaru will be my forever car!

I have had very few problems with this car. It is great on snow and wet roads. It has been dependable and only required usual maintenance. I have had to replace tires and a battery. The only problem I have had is a short in the windows where they will not respond to the button. This has been off and on and I will be taking it to the dealer this week. The Subaru maintenance departments are very helpful and responsive to any need I have had. I also had a problem with the radio during the warranty period, which they replaced right away.

Subaru Forester review from owner.

Vehicle is very comfortable, roomy and easy to drive. There have been 2 issues with the vehicle; the first occurring a few months after it was purchased. As I was driving it home from work it started stalling out and starting back up. It had to be towed from home to the shop. The other time happened in the line to my bank. I had put it in park and it wouldn't go back into any other drive. Car was towed again. Both times it was fixed at very little cost to me. We had purchased an extended warranty.

- Jane C

Another great Subaru in my life.

I am a loyal Subaru owner, this is my third Subaru. I like the cargo space, the quality of the build, and so on. With this particular car, there was a defect in the engine that led it to burn oil, and it was a great struggle to finally get Subaru to agree to replace part of the engine. The problem is now resolved. I hope that I will always be able to get a manual transmission but wish I did not have to give up my sunroof to get it. In general my Subarus have been exceptionally reliable.

- Caroline F

It does great in all weather but the air conditioning does not work well.

It is a great car in the snow and drives smoothly. However. the 2014 year model had something weird with the air conditioning where it did not blow out cold air when idling only when driving. The dealership said that that was the way it worked--air would flow in as the car moved forward but many other cars including our previous forester did not do this and the ac worked great even when idling. This is a major flaw in the car and may prevent us from buying another Subaru in the future.

- Pat A

The Subaru Forester is extremely safe and a great car if you have kids. It will give you a peace of mind.

I love Subaru's, and this one has been amazing with my two kids. The visibility is incredible, it gets great gas mileage, the best on the market for the size of the car as far as I could find. There's plenty of space in the backseat for two car seats. It's very safe and reliable. Seriously we have had zero issues with it since we've had it. It drives great and does very well in the snow. I'm very happy with it. I will probably be buying Subaru's for the rest of my life.

- Tara A

Good gas mileage. It handles well. Adjustable seat height for divers.

The major complaint I have is that I could not get this vehicle with a manual transmission and still have the enormous sunroof. This issues was fixed in the 2015 model. I also do not like that when the snow melts on my roof, and I brake, the snow slides down onto my windshield and if it is heavy, my windshield wipers cannot move it. This can be dangerous, even when I am able to remove most of the roof snow. I like nearly everything else about this car.

- Rebecca G

Comfortable ride with great gas mileage.

I love the driving comfort and maneuverability of my Subaru Forester. The gas mileage is sufficient for me (approx. 26 mpg overall between my highway and city driving) and I have great visibility while driving & parking. I wish I had leather seats versus cloth since I have two dogs and I wish I had climate control for rear seat passengers. Some more storage options would be great too. Overall I love my Forester and would buy another one in the future.

- Rhonda L

Cool sunroof and decent family starter car

A reliable vehicle, decent gas mileage and storage space. It does have some road noise from the tires. It's a good starter vehicle but not great for a larger family. It has a decent amount of technology such as built in GPS, nice sound system with upgraded speakers. I have had issues with wearing on the seats. Which isn't covered by warranty apparently. My favorite feature is probably the large sunroof. It's about half the roof and is a nice feature.

- Zachariah G

It is moonroof is amazing!

My forester is spacious and reliable. My initial investment into a forester was to have a car big enough to fit many people and one that would last a long time. Subaru safety rating was appealing and the new style of the forester gave it a fresher look. After test driving it, I knew it was the one. I have fit many things in my hatchback and even added a hitch. It is great for road trips. The moonroof is phenomenal whether it is breeze or views.

- April G

Best car on the road. Has everything a family needs.

I can't say enough good things about my Subaru Forester. I love the way it handles the road. I have power seats which helps me a great deal as I am a short person and I can see all around me with no problems. The seats are also heated which makes it very comfortable in the winter. There's plenty of room in the car for family and lots of bags of groceries. The all wheel drive makes me feel very confident on the road during inclement weather.

- Joyce L

Overall, I wish I had purchased a different make.

The gas mileage is good. I like the comfort and space inside. I do not like the engine power. It does not accelerate quickly enough. The doors do not automatically lock which is a feature that I like. The defrost does not work well. It is difficult to reach a comfortable temperature. It is either to warm or too cold. I do like the back up camera. It requires more maintenance than cars I've driven in the past. I do like the all wheel drive.

- Beth S

My Subaru is the first car that I have had a love affair with.

The car is very comfortable. Seats, steering wheel etc are all adjustable. The leather seats give it an upscale feeling. It is very pleasant to drive and we have had no unusual problems with it. Just routine maintenance. I like the back up camera and the navigation system. I also like being able to have my phone connected with Bluetooth. The all wheel drive means the car handles well and drives well in all weather conditions.

- Gretchen B

Stick Shift Can Equal Gas Savings

I love having a 4 wheel drive car since we live near the mountain and in a place that snows in the winters. Our Forester is a standard (stick) shift and we have found that allows us to have more control over the type of gas mileage we get. When we are able to drive in 4th, 5th, or 6th gear we tend to get better mileage than was advertised! We know this because the car tells you what each trip's mileage is. Very happy with this.

- Zoe C

Subaru Forester safe, durable family vehicle.

Absolutely love my 2014 Subaru Forester. Runs like a dream. We have owned it for 2 years now and it has needed barely any maintenance besides regular maintenance ( oil change, washer fluid refill, etc.. ) Safe and drives very smooth. Great family car. Very spacious comfortable drivers seat. Would love it to be slightly larger in the back / trunk as we are adding another baby to our family soon, but it is a fantastic car!

- Megan M

The Subaru forester holds its value better than any other car I have owned.

Our 2014 Subaru forester is a reliable vehicle which gets great gas mileage and is easy to drive. Entering a busy highway is a breeze with plenty of pick-up to enable a smooth transition. The only reason the vehicle received a 4 rating instead of 5 is because of seat comfort. After an hour or so the seats are not as comfortable as other vehicles we have owned. However, there is plenty of head room for the tall driver.

- Catherine R

The car is economical to run while being a real work-horse.

I like the hatchback and amount of room inside, whether it is for grocery shopping or for attending a craft show as a vendor. With the back seats folded down there is a lot of room for carrying my product and display panels. I love that you can adjust the driver's seat up so high and at a comfortable angle. There is also a lot of glass for easy viewing of the road around you. There is nothing I dislike about the car.

- Anita G

Beep when moving out of lane. Slows if car in front too close.

Did not operate well until after repaired from an accident (passenger fender). Accessories work much better, safer now. Can trust now. All alerts come on now. Helps me stay in lane, begins to slow if auto ahead is too close. Starts forward, after a stop now when auto in front moves a safe distance. In beginning had 12 battery failures in 14 months. No problems once battery was changed, no more problems.

- Carolyn M

It's a pretty good vehicle for the price and the manufacturer is known for having quality vehicles

I like that it's an SUV, and that I am able to utilize roof racks to transport my hobby items (surfboards, kayaks, etc.). I like that the seats fold down and it's pretty roomy inside to carry items such as lumber. I like that it's AWD, and I worry less when there is severe weather. I like that it has heated seats and a backup camera. I dislike that I feel like that paint chips easily, but that's pretty much it.

- Jessica K

Great handling and MPG, poor vent placement for back seats.

I love this car. It has been very reliable, and handles well in the snow. It rides more like a truck than a car, but the utility and cargo capacity is great. As is the MPG! My only complaint is that there is terrible air flow in the back seat and cargo area. Poor vent location inter front seats. They have corrected that in the current version by relocating the vents to the console pointing at the back seat.

- Monique M

Maybe buy a Honda because safety alone isn't enough of a feature.

The backup camera is the absolute worst. Its small, placed in an area of the dash that impedes viewing especially on very sunny days. The cost of maintaining is higher than I expected when researching to purchase. The leather on the seats is starting to fall apart already and the car has less than 80k miles. It rides nice and smooth, the view is unobstructed but its a finicky beast.

- Sara B

Subaru Forester roomy & comfy!

I love my car, it's so roomy! Very comfortable seats, I feel like I'm higher up than my old forester and it feels like I'm in more control. The one issue is I wish I could see better out the rear window it does feel like there's a greater blind spot than my old car. It drives so smooth and quiet! Air conditioner is amazing and heat too! I do wish this version had heated seats.

- Kelsey R

It makes you feel safe, with all-wheel drive and great visibility, and it has the tightest turning radius I have ever seen on any vehicle.

I like the size, style, and amenities. I especially like that it is all-wheel drive, as I had a front-wheel drive SUV previously (RAV4), which I found was difficult to drive uphill on steep hills (lost traction). My Subaru Forester feels large, yet it is still relatively compact. It has a good deal of storage room and gets decent gas mileage (wish it got even better).

2014 Subaru Forester - Extremely Comfortable and Well Worth the Money

My subaru forester is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. My vehicle does not have all the fancy features, but does have Bluetooth that works great. It has occasionally struggled with connection, however I am able to quickly fix the issue. It runs well, I have never felt unsafe in it and has quick response as well as an amazingly small turn radius for an SUV.

- Elizabeth P

Very pleased with my new Subaru Forester.

I bought my Subaru because I was looking for a vehicle that got decent gas mileage but would also drive well in the snow and bad weather. I love it! I haven't had any issues with it since I bought it. I runs well, and handles excellently in inclement weather. It is very spacious inside and would work well as a small family car also. Definitely would purchase again.

- Ashleigh W

4 door 5 seater with plenty of storage/luggage space in the back.

The 2014 Forester is super dependable. I drive at least 80 miles per day. I have only done the routine maintenance and it runs great. I did have 1 transmission issue but the dealership got me taken care of with super friendly and professional service. I feel safe when driving and will definitely consider another Subaru when it's time to get another car!

- Amy G

Loving my Subaru Forester

I love my Forester. It is roomy enough to travel with my three dogs, comfortable enough to do 12-14 hour days of road tripping, and although I haven't had an accident in it, it has my confidence in safety features, frame strength and engine reliability. I have owned this car for over five years now and have had no mechanical expenses except for maintenance.

- Kerry K

Incredibly safe Subaru Forester especially during Wisconsin winters.

I love my Subaru Forester. Incredibly safe, all wheel drive, amazing during the Wisconsin winters and on different terrains. Does not look big on the outside but is super spacious on the inside. Windshield is huge. Good trunk space. Rear view camera for parking/backing up is amazing and very accurate. And only needs $30 to fill up the tank!

- Camille N

Fun comfortable, and safe

The Subaru Forester is a great everyday vehicle, it has a very comfortable ride, and many additional features like heated seats, dual climate, navigation, and hands free to name a few make this a great road trip choice. The CVT transmission is smooth and after the brake sensor was replaced under recall, it has been a very reliable vehicle.

- Darrell M

has turbo engine. Love the pick up and go

I bought a 1 yr old car & six days after being bought the whole dashboard lite up with all colored lights. Took it back to dealership. They kept it 6 weeks and had to reset the whole engine. The registration now is labeled Lemon Law. Hope I don't have trouble re-selling the car someday. It has worked perfectly since the factory reset.

- Elizabeth G

Solid Family Car- No Bells and Whistles

This is a good solid basic car. It has plenty of room for my kids and their sports equipment. It rides fairly smooth. I wish it had more features, for example, the lights aren't automatic, the controls are basic, and difficult to work. I wish it looked less like a station wagon. All in all, it's a good family car for the price.

- Amanda Y

Review of 2014 Subaru Forester

I love my forester! I love the HUGE sunroof, heated seated, and interior fabric. The driver's seat includes a lumbar support as well as the typical adjustments which makes driving far distances extremely comfortable. The trunk is very spacious and with the option to lower two of the rear seats you can fit almost anything in the car.

- Brittany C

Great first car for any driver.

A great first car, the four wheel drive is very important to me since I live in a place with bad winters. There is also a lot of room to move items in the back. And the audio system is great with Bluetooth, if you do not want Bluetooth aux as well as USB are available. All in all a great car and would definitely buy another Subaru.

- Cat L

Best Dog Road Trip Vehicle Ever

I love my Forester! Super comfortable seat- can adjust lumbar, height and distance. My 3 dog car seats fit wonderfully. In Chicago the All Wheel Drive is needed. We have taken it on many vacations- gone off roading in Utah and in the desert of Arizona. If I could afford a new vehicle I would just get the same make/model newer.

- Georgina K

My favorite car! Definitely planning on sticking with Subaru.

I haven't had any problems with the Subaru. I feel very safe in the car and after having been in an accident a couple of years ago, I really can't stress enough how important safety is for me. The car also is plenty spacious for road trips with my friends- tons of space for bags in the trunk and leg space in the back seat as well.

- Lindsay W

Great car and safe car worth it.

Just wish the Bluetooth connection was better, but other than that it drives nice is a very smooth ride. I definitely recommend this car the safety aspects are really nice it made insurance easier and cheaper than any other car we looked at. The gas mileage is not something to sneeze about it is been a family car for 4 years now.

- Josh N

My Subaru Forester is great in the snow.

I like the fact that it's a 5-speed and it's good on gas mileage. I love the color. The air conditioning system doesn't work very well however. The heated seats are nice in the winter. It's also very good in the winter - in the snow and icy roads. It has comfortable seating and a lot of space in the back for groceries, etc.

- Hayley N

It�s all wheel drive does great in the winter

A Subaru forester is a great car for the winter I lived on a hill no four wheel drive could get up but my Subaru got up it just fine. It has good space. Also there is a moon roof in it. In the radio you can connect to the hand free and be able to talk on the phone through your speakers so you're not using your phone and driving

- Kayla B

Safety conscience is the key.

Has normal age problems, new tires, new brakes-nothing really major has happened to the car and the car does have over 100,000 miles on it. The dealer told us that they see 100,000 miles all the time of the time. We bought it because of the safety ratings it has and has consistently had on all years since we bought this one.

- Fora G

Subaru Forester: The car you didn't know you need to drive.

To put it in a few words, I've really enjoyed owning and driving this car. The only issues I've had with it have come through normal wear and tear. It rides smooth, is easy to drive, and is very spacious. It was affordable and a great value. I would certainly recommend this car to anyone who is looking to drive a small SUV.

- Brian W

Driving my Subaru in New York!

I love my Subaru! It is super reliable, comfortable, great on gas, and it is a smooth ride! I really do not have one single complaint on it! The performance is stunning! I had it all last winter and I didn't have one issue and I felt confident in driving it, I was never nervous in taking it out on the roads when it get icy.

- Elizabeth L

I feel like I have a good car that will serve me well.

Very reliable, I feel that I can take long trips with my Subaru. Performs well, great anti-lock brake system. Not as comfortable a ride as I would like, it needs a better shock system so you do not feel every bump. I like the placement of the drink holders and the fold down table, with drink holders in the back seat.

- Gail J

Subaru Forester is fun and safe.

Great in the snow and icy roads. Comfortable seats with heat for driver and front seat passenger. GPS is easy to use, driver seat is fully adjustable including height for short drivers. Subaru is the safest vehicle for many years in a row. Great for dogs and people alike. Rear seats fold flat to haul large items.

- Pam L

I love the large extended moonroof.

No problems, amazing reliability, very comfortable, all the features I need and want. I especially love the large moon roof, the all wheel drive and the seat warmers. My car starts every time - even in the bitter cold, the air conditioning is very good for the hot summer months and the backseat is roomy enough.

- Brooke H

More comfortable than some SUVs

This car is more comfortable than SUVs that have lower seats however the seat is still not high enough at its highest setting for me. I traded in a full sized SUV for this car so it seems cramped to me. The car's shifting requires some getting used to and can be rough in traffic when traveling at slow speeds.


The AWD system is the safety and the best in it's class.

There is no problems to this vehicle nor brand. Subarus are completely safe and reliable cars. Their AWD system is the best if you are comparing it with Toyota, Honda, Kia, Mazda, and GM. Comfort is very comfortable and offers the best in class safety technology for all passengers in the car and the driver.

- Kevin X

It drives well and is a reliable vehicle. I feel very confident driving my Subaru.

My Vehicle drives smooth and I like the fact that it it all-wheel drive. Subaru has a very good reputation for making safe and reliable vehicles and my vehicle does not dispute that. I do have the base model however, and I would have liked a few more standard options such as a backup camera or rear sensors.

- Samantha W

Is able to handle snow really well, for people living in areas that get a lot of snow.

It has good gas mileage, decently comfortable seating of which the front 2 seats have heat warmers for the colder months.There is a port to directly plug in an ipod and thus the ipod can be fully controlled from the audio console. Does great in snowy weather. Overall it just feels like a really good buy.

- Steven G

First time automatic transmission & Subaru owner.

Price was good. It is good in the snow; good in gas. Not pleased with how the brake pads wear. Have needed to replace the tires provided by the dealer twice- finally went to Goodyear. Will problem look at other options with the next car. Interior is comfortable- leather is good with transporting my dogs.

- Marty L

Forester comfort and technology.

Although the Subaru Forester has great features and drives well the seats are very firm and somewhat uncomfortable. There is not a lot of leg room between the first row and second row. The automatic trunk lift is really slow going up. You have to push the button multiple times to get the trunk to open.

- Katie B

Great adventure vehicle - dependable and reliable and comfortable.

Comfortable ride, safety is top notch. Tons of space. Fuel economy is pretty great for an SUV. Good on rough roads and in inclement weather. I love this vehicle and plan to drive it for years to come. Seriously love my vehicle. What else can I say? It was worth spending the money on as an investment.

- Brittany G

Subaru is our vehicle of choice.

There is little to no road noise, the interior holds up well even with pets and grandkids. The fuel mileage is great on the freeway in town it does well also. The Bluetooth feature is easy to use. The console is easy to use however the cup holders could be easier access in both front and back seats.

- Cindy M

It is well designed, safe, and reliable. I appreciate the thought that went into its design, like the gas tank on the passenger side and the seats that don't push the outsides of your shoulders forward.

I like the new safety features added for the 2014 edition, how it holds its value, and the reputation of the engine to last for upwards of 150,000 miles. I dislike that I've had a small issues that aren't covered by warranty like the hub assembly replacement, the gears locking, and the blower motor.

- Ryan H

Awesome all wheel drive vehicle.

I love my Subaru forester. It is the best vehicle that I have ever owned. It has a sunroof and leather interior, and is very comfortable with heated front seats and drivers automatic adjustable seat. All wheel drive is always a nice feature for bad weather situations and this vehicle handles nicely.

- Beth H

the blakes pad in our car are thinning and I am not sure that that's normal for mountainy place.

I like that subaru forester is good for a hilly place, which we live in, and I like the fact we have never had any issues since we bought it three years ago. I feel this one is lighter than old one we had before and that concerns safety level, but other than that, I'm pretty satisfied with this car.

- Ryo K

Subaru Forester- handy but best with a rack I top.

Reliable comfortable car, but the interior automatic lighting system does not work properly. I like this car for its four wheel drive, but I neglected to get one with a good rack on it, I really wish I had a rack on top. The hatch back leaves plenty of room for many of the things I need to do.

- Stephen H

Great car for the winter weather.

Perfect size. Drives well in the brutal winter weather. Holds up well. Never had any recalls. The only thing that could be improved for this year car is the stereo is relatively outdated even for the year 2014. I didn't anticipate actually liking this car when I first saw it but I fell in love.

- Kate G

The dog in the forester, never in the jeep.

Reliability--the most important part of owning a car regardless of the make or the age also, I believe that my forester would take me wherever I plotted a course good size--enough room for persons and stuff adults sit in the backseat with no difficulty looks good--not sleek but well designed.

- Susan L

How to choose to drive safe and secure.

No problems. It's made of metal not fiberglass and has tons of great features like heated front seats. No problem with any of the features and my grandson loves the sunroof. I chose my Subaru for its track record of safety and stability. I needed something that would protect me and my family.

- Rachel H

I call my Forester �Forest Gump�

I love everything about my Subaru except for the fact that I can feel everything I drive on. Other than that one annoying problem I love my car. The gas mileage on my Forester is way better than my last car ( Chrysler Town and Country). I wish my car had leather seats and a sunroof though.

- Bailey S

Subaru lover, regardless of some issues

Although we have had trouble with the electrical components before it was always covered under the gold star warranty, and the Subaru dealership people are incredibly helpful. It is now making a weird sound they can't identify that makes me nervous, but has otherwise been a wonderful car.

- Danielle S

Sturdy and dependable car.

Bought it for the snow in Colorado, but not noticeably better for this than other automobiles I have owned. No mechanical problems. Very reliable, good undercarriage distance from ground. Sturdy and easily-maintained interior. In past >4 years I have never had to take in for repair.

- Gretchen M

my Subaru is the best vehicle I have ever owned

I have had no problems with my Subaru, it's been such reliable vehicle, being a senior citizen and living in the country I need a vehicle that when I want or need to get somewhere it will get me there, and my Subaru has been that vehicle. The gas mileage has been quite good also..

- Catherine F

Great car for single mom.

I love this car. It has great off the start pickup. It brakes quick and safe. In four years I've only replaced a bulb, due to someone else's neglect. I feel safe with my child. Its technology is on par with my experience and participation level. I would not change a thing.

- Kate W

Winter package included, rain guards for windows.

It has 170 hp and sport mode and it has amazing pickup. Breaks work seamlessly and the comfort of the seats is top notch. There is a lumbar support feature for the driver. Panoramic moonroof makes traveling the mountains and parking at night to stargaze, a memorable experience.

- Ashley J

Information on inside the Subaru Forester

Very spacious has lots of leg room. It is not a gas guzzler. Drives nicely easy handling. Lots of room in the back especially when you fold the seats down. Child seat hooks easily into back seat. When the seats are up it is very easy to put a large folding stroller in the back.

- Susan S

Stylish and rugged, easy on the wallet.

No problem, tires and. Brakes long lasting, keep on top of oil changes and filter changes will keep car running like new. Great for long trips, you can really pack in the cargo. Enough room for four average adults. Stylish can be a work vehicle or good for a night on the town.

- Shirley M

Very good vehicle, rides well, handles well.

No problems at all Have had to replace battery and tires and brakes, normal at this time and mileage. The forester maintains fantastic fuel mileage. Came with 2 sets of floor mats for summer and winter. The headlights come on and stay on whenever the key is in the ignition

- James H

The pick up/get up and go is phenomenal!

Love the style of it. The pick up /get up and go is AMAZING! Great handling and maneuverability. Really fun to drive. Two complaints: the storage in the front area sucks and the rain guards on the windows allow for water to drip in instead of directing it out/down the vehicle.

- Kerensa P

The interior is cheaply made.

It performs well and I have not had any major issues. I have had to change the battery but otherwise it is reliable. however the interior is cheap. My seats are ripping at the seams even in areas that aren't used often. There are not any special features, it is pretty basic.

- Becky H

It is reliable, fun to drive and great to drive in all types of weather conditions.

I love the body style of the 2014 Forester model. The boxy and stylish exterior drew me in. The interior is also nicely styled and roomy. I have 6' plus tall friends and they can comfortably fit in the back. I also have the XT model with a turbo and it is fun to drive!

It is a versatile vehicle with good passenger space or cargo capacity. Braking and handling have been excellent and fuel economy quite good especially in highway driving. The only thing I have found that I don't like is the support for the rear cargo curtain which must be removed when loading high cargo items.

My Forrester, which is a crossover, provides good gas mileage and a comfortable ride. It seats 5 adults comfortably and has a cargo area adequate for my needs. With the rear seats down it handles a good size cargo load. It handles very well and maintenance costs are good.


Great city and rural vehicle

I have never had any problems with this vehicle. Subaru just sent out a recall, for a brake light, my brake light was fine, but the process to get the recall piece fixed was very easy and was taken care of in a timely manner. Vehicle drives well in all weather conditions.

- Anne M

Sound system is surprisingly good.

Rally enjoy this car. Good for city driving and outdoors/off roads. Comfortable, quiet and fairly good gas mileage. Plan on getting another Subaru as my next car based on experience. Especially like the look of the interior and the unparalleled sound system and handling.

- Dan B

Review of Subaru forester good points and bad. Very reliable,dependable.

It burns oil the battery dies if lights are left on for short time.?Very good on snow.Comfortable. Roomy good heated seats. Got good deal since it was used by car. Dealer. The biggest thing it does is burn oil I have to keep close eye at all times that is the bad thing.

- Ann M

Good performer, comfortable seats with good legroom.

Had a recall for using too much oil. After fixed I have had no further problems. Not as good of mpg as advertised. I normally get 23-24 mpg and they said it would be 32. I do not like how the gas tank is on the rear right. Tires seem to wear out quickly due to AWD.

- Carol N

Great visibility - there are plenty of windows and I can see around the vehicle

I love the visibility that the forester has - I am tall and can see clearly through all the windows. It handles well in the mountains. Also, I love sharp turning radius for U-turns. The Bluetooth is tricky to set up and not always reliable but when it works it is handy.

- Loren H

Subaru is the best. Will always be my car.

It is dependable, safe, fun to drive. Good fuel economy. Easy maintenance. Always gets me home safe it bad weather, snow and rain. It is reliable. Service is reasonable and the dealership is fantastic. It is very comfortable and easily seats 5 people. The dog loves it.

- Janet C

2.0 Turbo 0-60 in 6.4 seconds with 5 seat capability, sign me up!

Ha e a 2014 Forester XT Premium Flawless for 30k, then ECM was replaced under warranty. Also the car began consuming oil, about 1 quart every 3500 miles. Small tedious noises in cabin, air fans are loud and rear view window wiper solenoid clicks every time it engages.

- colton f

Comfortable ride, lots of power.

It is comfortable to drive, has great get up and go. Roomy and plenty of forage in the back. Easy to get in and out of. Have a sun/moonroof which I love to use when weather allows. Easy to figure out all the gadgets-dashboard, radio. Has a backup camera that I love!!

- Maria R

2014 Subaru Forester Review

I drive a midsize SUV and it has a lot of great features. There is a full size sunroof, heated seats, power controls, and other great wonderful features. The leg room in the backseat is spacious for any guests. It handles well in snow and rain with all wheel drive.

- Jennifer N

Great in bad weather and snow.

It is a really nice, reliable car. I have always driven a Subaru so I knew I wanted another one. I have never gotten stuck in the snow or had to worry in bad weather. I have the basic model, which has everything I need. It is comfortable to drive. I am happy with it.

- Ashley P

Subaru hands down one amazing vehicle

This is absolutely smooth. The only issue is it shifts at a higher rpm than I'm used to. It has so much room for kids and pets as well. I'm used to my pickups ride and I'm 100% in love with my Subaru. The gas mileage has been huge bonus. I usually get around 30 mpg.

- Shelby T

I like the SUBARU because it's good for the snow

The car is perfect but the interiors is going to bad situation. We have problems with the switch of the key, the key it's not coming out and this is the problem because with need to use the another car. But it's my favorite car SUBARU, it's the best, believe me

- Elizabeth I

My forester has just enough of the new features to keep me happy.

I love my Subaru forester. I am always worried about safety on the road, especially during bad weather. The forester is great with its all wheel drive, I do not have to worry about getting stuck. The Bluetooth however leaves a lot to be desired. Always cutting out.

- Maureen B

A sturdy SUV with powerful performance and a comfortable ride.

My car has been incredibly reliable, no problems aside from one flat tire a few years ago, I do not drive often but when I get in my car I just know it will always work. It is great for road trips as I drove it across the country, for an SUV it gets great mileage!

- Darren H

Very spacious, also no blind spots

One of the best features on my car would be the fact that I have almost no blind spots on my car making it a very nice first car when I was learning to drive. It has quite a bit of room in the inside which is very nice. I have had no problems with my car as well.

- Emily G

Common issue with these, the at oil light, but to know if you have an issue.

I really love it, except for on long highway drives, let's say longer than 20 minutes, the automatic transmission oil temperature light comes on, and apparently this is a common issue with this model. I just have to be extra cautious. Otherwise it is a great SUV.

- Stephanie H

Remote start is great. Trailer hitch comes in handy.

I have had the car for five years now and I just replaced 1 hub cap. It is been amazing! No problems, runs smoothly. It is a very reliable vehicle. I love my auto. 5 hour interstate rides through snow. Never slipped once. Even does better others on straight ice.

- None M

Subaru forester is a great vehicle!

Handles great in snow and rain. Great visibility with large windows. Love the panoramic moonroof. Navigation system is just okay. Comfortable seating and very room back seat and trunk area. Interior leather seats with seat warmers and back up camera on screen.

- Sarah P

Great safety and gas mileage!

Great gas mileage. Wonderful safety features. Good resale value. Very responsive and comfortable. Good in snow, ice, gravel and rain. Difficult to work on yourself. Wish the passenger side had more comfortable seating. Great visibility. Easy to maintain.

- Ann V

Easy to get into and out of. Has too much road noise.

I love the size of my vehicle - it is perfect, not too small and not too big. It's also really easy to get into and out of. I often take my MIL who is in a wheelchair, so it is easy for her to travel in. The only thing I dislike is the amount of road noise.

- Kathy H

The vehicle is a safe, efficient car that does great in all weather conditions.

My vehicle does great in bad weather and is very safe. I love the heated seats. Very smooth drive and has great pickup. I wish it wasn't carpeted though because of messy kids. It can be hard to clean. Overall, the car is great and it gets decent gas mileage.

- Jessica B

Year round reliability. All wheel drive is great with traction control.

We love the traction control, and reliability. These cars are very spacious and the best value in its class I looked at other 4 wheel drives and for the money and gas mileage Subaru checked all the boxes for our needs safety, price, storage, and appearance.

- Candy W

Safety number one! Great mpg! Safe in case being t boned.

Difficult to see speedometer in daytime nothing else. Wish it came with blind spot warning as standard and lane detection. Wish it have a little more storage in center of seats. Needs some tighter space by seat as everything falls thru of side of the seat.

- Deb T

Lots of space, terrible sound

Comfortable, it fits my husband who is 6'7'. It has a terrible sound system, it's hard to hear. I think it's an ugly car, I prefer the Honda CR-V. The trunk is huge. Gets good gas mileage. Has rear view camera for backing up. Moonroof. Easy to fit car seat

- Amy C

Comfy and spacious car with good gas mileage

It has lots of features and great gas mileage. It is very comfortable and has lots of space with the back seat down. It has a huge moonroof which makes it feel very luxurious. I don't love the color, which is red, but that's what was available. I love it.

- Brandy K

It is a partial zero emission vehicle, so it is safe for the environment.

The 2014 Subaru Forester is a very enjoyable car. It has much leg room, it is easy and fun to drive, and is a a great SUV that can hold the necessary items you need and the seats that you need for a family of up to five! It is an all around great vehicle.

- Borschiv M

Feel Like a Queen as You Sit High in your Forrester.

I think the Forrester is a safe and reliable vehicle. It has large windows and is high up off the road which provides a safe feeling when driving in traffic. It is also good in the snow. Have not had any major problems with the car since I have owned it.

- Jennifer T

My husband had a rollover accident in our previous Forester. Even though the car was totalled, he only had minor whiplash. They are very safe vehicles.

I love the safety rating of our Subaru. It is very comfortable, it has enough cargo space and towing capacity for what we need, and the heated seats save my creaky body when it's cold. My only complaint is the consumption of oil, but that's not so bad.

- Veronica H

Great car with great performance.

Very reliable, great gas mileage, wonderful car. Looks great, very practical as well. I'll be a Subaru owner for life. I have had no problems with my car, and the dealership is fantastic. Polite and very helpful. I love the brand, they make great cars.

- Sarah J

Roomy and dependable, but terrible venting in the back seats.

I love the Forester. It has great utility and cargo space. It rides kind of like a truck, so it is not the smoothest ride, but that is not a problem for me. My only real complaint is that there is no good airflow in the back seats. Poor vent location.

- Mo M

Love the eye site safety feature.

Love my Subaru Forester! Drives great, good gas mileage, comfortable. I love the safety features, especially the eyesight. Only problem I have had is the service. My dealership is changing ownership and until it is complete they have no service dept.

- Theresa A

The Subaru Forester is a reliable automobile and performs well.

Had a problem where the car would not start. Dealer immediately fixed this problem. It rides well and accelerates nicely being it's a four cylinder automobile.Since I've had this car, I've only experienced the one major problem as I stated above.

- Rosalie G

Great gas mileage. No mechanical issues. Great visibility & huge moonroof. Spacious.

I haven't had any issues with my forester since I bought it 2 years ago. It gets great fuel mileage and seems very safe and sturdy. It has great maneuverability and visibility as well as a surprising amount of trunk space for a compact SUV.

- Abby P

One thing others should know about my car is how safe it is to drive.

I like the safety features, how smooth it drives over roads, and that it is bigger than my last car. I also like not being blinded from other vehicles since i am higher up from the road. I dislike how long it takes to rev up for speed.

- Ashley V

It is an All wheel drive vehicle

I really like foresters in general. Subaru's are amazing for New England winters. Unfortunately this car has burned oil since we bought it and also has had to have an axle replaced. I like the eyesight and the color of the vehicle

- Hi N

This is a very nice car. Small but roomy. Easy to handle and goes well in the snow. Dependable.

I drive a subaru forester. It is fully loaded with power everything and all wheel drive. It's a small car with plenty of legroom inside. I love the sunroof and heated seats! My only complaint is the cost of upkeep.

- Wanda D

Great car that seems like an observatory.

We have it shortly now, but it is really nice car that feels really spacious and has a wonderful visibility around and also going back. It is comfortable, strong enough and has a great miles per gallon efficiency.

- Jan V

It's a Safe Family Car for everyone to use. Buy one now!

I love how safe my car is, I was in an accident on the freeway and my daughter and I were safe. I also like the size of it, perfect for my family's needs. And the Subaru service staff at the dealership is great.

- Adrian M

How safe it is. I'm happy that it has safety features incorporated into the design.

Chose this car for its safety features and AWD. Like the handling and quality. Dislike how the plastic in certain areas inside the cabin has already cracked. The bevels on the dials for air can be more clear.

- Leonard J

It has held up well over all of the trips we have been on. We go camping a lot and it handles great on rough terrain.

I like the safety features and the large windows to see on all sides. I have had to change my tires multiple times though in a short amount of time which has not been the case with other vehicles in the past.

- Michael M

The car is a great car to own and drive. I am very happy with my choice of car.

My car is perfect for my needs. It sits higher up, which makes it comfortable for me getting in and out of the car. It also has lumbar support for my back and seat warmers. It is a great car to own and drive.

- Nancy M

Comfortable seating and easy to handle. I've had no issue with steering or handling the car. Love the 4WD especially when it rains.

I love my Subaru Forester. It's very easy to drive. 4WD comes in handy for rainy days. Comfortable seating and back seats can recline for long driving trips. I especially bought it for it's safety rating.

- Kathy C

I feel safe in my Subaru.

I love everything about it. It is all wheel drive so I can get around good in the winter. It is fun and comfortable to drive and my gas mileage is great for an all wheel drive vehicle. it also is very safe.

- Danny g

Subaru voted safest in 2013

handles well but had to be careful with gas pedal as car would jump forward at beginning. love the seat warmer passenger side. leather seats are a nice luxury. newer foresters have side collision warnings

- Barbara Q

before you buy a Subaru, give it a really good test drive. If it has no get up and get, leave it on the lot. Several folks tell me they either have good Gas mileage and no get up and go, or Get up and go and no gas mileage. WHY can't they have both???

I Love My Forester, but it uses a lot of Oil and needs to have the engine replaced. Also it has no get up and go. And the leather on the seats are splitting up. I Love Subaru's but this one is a lemon

- Carol S

I really like my Subaru forester, haul stuff in it all the time.

No issues. Comfortable and reliable. Decent gas mileage. Like all wheel drive. Wish I would have done the all weather package my sister got it on her forester and the warm seats are nice in the winter.

- Robin M

It's the perfect small-mid size SUV, has good gas mileage, and easy to keep up.

Perfect size, not huge but can fit lots of stuff for moving or trips. Easy to drive in all conditions and feels safe, even in flooded streets where I live. Love the design, laid back outdoorsy feel.

- Rachael T

That it handles beautifully - I can turn corners easily and without worrying about space

my vehicle is fuel efficient and affordable to maintain. My vehicle handles very well especially the turning radius. My vehicle is great for transporting both people and anything else that I want

- lynn d

Do not let this car get towed - it must be loaded on a flatbed.

The car is very comfortable, lots of space for hauling things or for passengers. I always feel safe in the car. It is not great on gas, I would love Subaru to come out with an electric forester.

- Christie M

It is very roomy. It is reliable and mostly comfortable. I love the space for hauling stuff . My one complaint is that when you hit a pothole or bump in the road you really know it. I'm sure this has to do with the suspension and may add to the stability but a softer ride would be nice.

The guide book (manual) is very hard to read and understand. The car has lots of features that I don't use because I don't know how to work them. Love the compass on the rear view mirror.

- Reta S

The most important thing others should know, is my car has been reliable and travels great in long distance travel.

I like that my car has been reliable with just a few issues since owning it. I like that it has a good amount of room for cargo and groceries. I like that I'm not always filling up on gas.

- Sheniqua r

Replace tires with better quality - not from dealership.

Like: dependable in snow.... Dislike: brake pads need to be replaced about every other year.. Tires that came with vehicle were average.. Could have better visibility out of front window.

- Martha L

It is built to last. High safety ratings.

Great fuel mileage. Runs smoothly with routine maintenance. Has tons of space to haul stuff for vacation, work or an entire family. Great on back roads or rugged terrain. Love my vehicle.

- Britt G

The car is all-wheel drive meaning you can easily drive it in snow, off-road, or just your daily driver.

I love the amount of windows in the car, it makes me feel like I can see the world. I love how spacious the back of the car is. I love how well the car handles itself in every situation.

- Erin K

The most important thing others should know about my car is that it is the perfect height from the ground for elderly people, and the doors open wide so someone can help another person get in and out of the car.

What I like about my Forrester is that it is the perfect height off the ground for my wife to get in and out. What I don't like is the color. It is dark, and gets too hot too quickly.

- Thomas Z

Feels safe in the city or on the highway.

No problems after 4 years. Accelerates quickly on the highway, easy to merge safely into traffic. Performs well and feels safe in rain, ice and snow. Grips the road. Comfortable ride.

- Christina N

The Forester is dependable, safe, and roomy for small families.

I love that my vehicle is dependable and roomy. It fits my family perfectly. My only real complaint is that there is no rear air vents, which can make things stuffy for my young son.

- Brian K

Perfect handling in all kinds of weather. All wheel drive gives non slip, non skid performance and 8.7 inches of clearance gets me over most obstructions without bottoming out.

It goes and goes and goes. In rain, snow, sand, mud, without a hitch. Gas mileage is iffy at 24-26 mpg and I would love to have a backup camera. Other than that, I love my Forester!

- Norm C

It is an overall great car and so far it has been reliable

I got the vehicle within the last year and so far it has been great. It has a great interior and i really enjoy how well the car handles. The only downside is a simi-low gas mileage

- nicholas H

It's my DOG car! Just like the Subaru commercials, my Golden thinks it's the greatest!

My Subaru is very economical and perfect for me to run around in. My dog can jump in for a ride too! My husband who is over 6 feet feels cramped when driving but for me it's great.

- sandee L

The all wheel drive makes you feel in control and safe even in awful conditions.

I like the all wheel drive and the fact that I sit high off the road. I also like the hatchback for ease of loading and unloading. I would like it to be appointed more comfortably.

- john c

The back seat can be rough on the bumpy roads of northern IL. Easyheight to get in and out of even for those with arthritis.

This vehicle drives well, can go through most weather without a problem. It withstood a front side crash and still drives well after repaired. Starts whatever the temperature is.

- Ellen T

It is well made and I get great gas mileage. I can drive in the snow with no trouble and also on muddy roads.

I own a 2014 Subaru Forester. It is the best car I have ever owned. It is all wheel drive and I get along great in the winter. It is sporty and fun to drive with great gas mileage.

- Daniel B

It's easy to maintain yourself.

I love how well it handles and the fuel economy. It's also very easy to maintain since everything the owner needs to maintain regularly is in easy reach. Finally, I like it's CVT.

- Mara h

Rides great and is great on gas and is a great looking car.

tI drives well, gets great gas mileage, dependable, roomy. I just do not like the quality of the sound of the radio. I love the moon roof. I would definitely buy another

- kathy w

I ride I comfort and in style

My Subaru is a very reliable vehicle. It has a very comfortable ride and is very roomie which is good because I am a tall individual. Gets good gas mileage as well.

- Brandon S

Handle's great. Roomy, comfortable back seats.

No complaint - handle's great - wish it came with bucket seats. Love that it only needs oil change every 7 thousand miles. Dislike head gasket problem in all Subarus.

- Elisabeth H

It is dependable, safe, and family friendly.

It has a decent amount of room and has safety features. It is okay on gas but not as good as my previous car. It is dependable and is good in all weather conditions.

- Chris C

2014 Subaru Forester review

Good gas mileage, easy to drive. Plenty of room in the car. The radio antenna breaks off way to easily though. All in the all that would be my biggest complaint.

- Keith M

It is very reliable and does not require a lot of maintenance

The vehicle passes the strictest safety ratings. It has excellent fuel economy. It drives in extreme weather situations just fine. And it has a quick acceleration

- Joe R

It is highly recommended by consumers report.

It has been very low maintenance. We are always hauling dogs or a lot of stuffing it. It is a nice ride very comfortable and quiet on long trips or short trips.

- Vel D

It seems to cost more to maintain than other cars but it is a good car and I would buy it again.

I love it, except that it makes a loud sound that the dealership has not figured out. It doesn't make the same sound when we take it in and it is embarrassing

- Denise V

Great gas mileage for a SUV.

I like the large windows that allow good visibility. I also like the large amount of storage room. I like the rear view camera. I dislike the turning radius.

- Adam H

It can be a manual car but it is also an automatic. Have to be careful when shifting gears.

I like that it is reliable. It gets me through any kind of snow or rough roads. The only complaint that I have is I wish it had heat vents in the back seat.

- Rachel T

We get a smooth ride every time and very good gas mileage.

We get really good gas mileage in our Forester, Subaru. We have had it since 2013 when we bought it and have had no engine trouble. The same tires are on it

It's reliable and fun and exciting to drive. I will never buy another make car.

Visibility is extremely perfect all around the vehicle. The motor is a boxer motor and it's quiet. My 4 cylinder is powerful and you don't Feel shifting.

Safety rating and dependable.

It's great on gas. The forester also can last over 200,000 miles and is rated number 1 in safety. It is also very comfortable for a family with children.

- Nicole T

Teenager friendly car will take some rough driving.

Good smooth performance, no major issues, sound system not good but was told when I bought it. Good in rain and snow. Lights sometimes not bright enough.

- Diane P

All wheel drive so it's great for the snow and very safe.

I wish the trunk space was a little bit wider and deeper. I also wish that the display was a little bit bigger and user friendly with the steering wheel.

- Stacy T

It is a well-built, reliable SUV with great visibility.

I like the visibility it gives me. It is reliable. It is great in the snow. I wish the windshield were more tinted and the seats not such a light color.

- Debbie S

Had two years and no problems yet.

Like the Bluetooth connection. Wish it had rear view camera. Like all the storage in the back. Can take a pretty good hit from rear and still function.

- Debbie A

I would recommend this vehicle to anyone, especially a family. Good size and easy to drive.

Bought used, no issues yet and I have had it for 9 months. Very comfortable and had all the features I was looking for :big trunk, roof rack, sunroof

- cass d

It is a very reliable vehicle.

I like the reliability, look, and features of my vehicle. I do not like the seat warmer controls or that it tends to use oil in between oil changes.

- Kim D

It is worth the money and you will be happy with it. Having upgrades is worthwhile also.

I love the way it drives. The accessories are great. The only thing I don't like is the fact that not all seats have the comfort of the driver's.

- Cheryl B

Great windows and dependability!

I love the large windows and sunroof. Having these windows eliminates any blind spots. Also, the drive is very smooth and it is very dependable.

- Melissa H

Costly repairs for stuff that shouldn't go wrong. Subaru parts are crap

Handles well in snow, but it's too heavy. It accelerates well and rides nice, but it requires constant, expensive maintenance despite low miles

- Craig A

The most important thing is how well built the car is.

I have great visibility in this car which is important to me. The ride is smooth and the car is built well. I have had NO issues or repairs.

- Janet G

It is a great winter car in New England. Good handling, and toasty heated seats.

It's the right amount of space for our family. I wish it had a little more acceleration pickup, but that's a decent trade off for gas mileage.

- Sheila M

It is a great vehicle and was reasonably priced in comparison to other similar vehicles

I love the size and gas mileage. It is easy to get into and out of -- just the right height. It has an awesome sunroof and is fun to drive.

It drives really well for a car its size in terms of pickup and handling

I like that it is compact but higher off the ground that a normal car so it allows me to see better. Also it has good space for storage

- David H

I really like my car I think it's comfortable and it serves the purpose I got it for. I have had a few small accidents in it and it held up well. My only issues are with the c.v joint and something is rubbing and a squeak belt.

Subarus have a history of trouble with head gaskets so it's something to keep in mind when buying one and choosing a warranty for them

- Erin F

Great gas mileage, sporty looking.

My Subaru is very dependable. I love the space in the back. I feel like it is safe, easy to repair and drives well in all conditions.

- Kathryn B

The gas gage number is incorrect, if you fill it it will tell you you have 280 miles of gas but its really 350 the gage is broken

I like it, I wouldn't say I love it. The electronic sensor/reader doesn't work. It worked for like 3 months and then that was it.
