Roomiest ride of its class

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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.

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

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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

My favorite car! Definitely planning on sticking with Subaru.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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

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

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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

I love the large extended moonroof.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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

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

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium

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
