2007 Subaru Forester

Great all year round car
Comfortable for both driver and passengers. I love that this car is great for driving in the snow, especially for snowboarding in the winter. The exterior styling isn't as nice as the newer models. Very reliable car and lots of trunk space.

2010 Subaru Forester

by Myotis on 10-13-2012
Fun, Functional, and Safe
I don't really have any caveats or cons for this car. I'm not trying to say that it's mind-blowingly fantastic, but it's very solid. This car has a surprising amount of cargo space. It also performs very well.

We have a turbocharged version, which makes for fun driving. It also has a sport mode for extra fun and in sport mode you can choose to perform your own gear changes. There are only 4 gears to go between, and you have to time your downshifts, because it doesn't have autoblipping to rev-match or anything to smooth the shifts for you like some other cars do nowadays - but it's still fun.

The main thing about this car for us is the safety. This is actually our second Forester, as our first one was taken out in a highway collision where an oncoming car lost control and veered sideways into our lane and hit us head on at highway speeds. Although the car was toast, we walked away without a scratch and didn't hesitate to replace it with the exact same model.
