We bought this as a good solid car for a college driver, and it's been great so far. It runs and drives beautifully, and is an excellent snow car with very good safety features. This is our second Forester and fourth Subaru, and we have high faith in the car's reliability and performance.

The Forester has great road handling and is safe and practical. I bought it for my son to drive to hockey, so it needed to be able to hold 4-5 people and their hockey bags. It also needed to be safe for a teenage driver in wintery conditions. He also needs a good sound system and a manual transmission. I'm pleased to say that we're happy with the Forester in all these respects.

2009 Forester XT. I purchased this car as Q-Certified. So far I have had to replace the rear wheel bearings, front sway bushings, A/C compressor. The engine has a surge at about 50% throttle. With just 72k seems like a lot wrong. Car is in great shape, and appears to have been maintained. I like how it performs. plenty of room. I just hope nothing else comes up. About Q-Certified... you are buying a car as is with a warranty. Do not assume problems have been corrected. Have the vehicle checked out by another mechanic. Also check the dealers ratings. This one I purchased this car from has a "F" rating from the better business bureau. Dealers inspect the cars themselves with this program. Apparently with standards not being enforced. The Forester XT is a good solid vehicle. They do have lower ratings for maintenance costs. Also it requires premium fuel. The turbo engine has plenty of power. Hills, and passing are no problem. I must say the forester is affected by crosswinds. Gets blow around a bit. I like it so far other than the problems. Step carefully my friends. The used car scams are very much alive, and well.
