2007 Subaru Forester User Reviews
Sports 2.5X shown
- $9,215 - $11,951
- Great visibility, handling in poor conditions, fuel economy, saftey, cargo space
- Cruise control light won't dim--too bright for night driving
I always saw Subaru as a car for liberals...I was wrong! This is a great vehicle for an conservative outdoorsman! This car will take my guns, gear, bikes, skis, small fishing boat, and family with ease. It doesn't matter what the road conditions are, this car will get you there--and back too.
I have never had a car with such good nightime visibility. This adds to saftey profile of the vehicle. With other vehicles I have really had to strain my eyes to look for deer along the sides of the road, but the Forresters lights light up the sides of the road wonderfully.
The manual transmission is fun to drive, and offers more control in poor road or off-road conditions. Initially I hated the hill-hold feature as it seemd to engage too readily leading to some jerky acceleration. Now I have 10,000 miles on the car and the hill hold is less sensitive making it a nice feature.
Despite its small size I am still able to take my family of 5 with ease. My wife and I have 3 children, all in car seats, and can fit them all in the back seat. There is plenty of room left over for all their stuff in the back!
The only nit-pick item is that the cruise control light doesn't dim with the other guage lights for night driving and becomes an irritant to the eyes....read morehide

- Good Fuel Economy, Great Ride
- A little power for 5 ppl in the car and climbing in the Mountains
The best SUV money can buy for less than 23000. The ride and feel is much better than Rav4, CRV. Great on Fuel Economy, have always got more than 28 miles per gallon. AWD for no extra cost. Handling is very good. Drive it once and you will fall in love with it

- Extremely smooth ride, more hp than SUV's in its class, lower center of gravity.
- Average stereo system.
Bought the Forester 2 weeks ago. It is a better value than the CR-V and the RAV-4 because you get a more comfortable ride and above all a higher level of safety. Its all-wheel drive is what makes a Subaru, ...a Subary.
