Would be a great little suv if it did not have issues with head gaskets

Really liked the size, small but yet large enough to do most of what we needed to do. Styling was simple and looks good. It has issues with rust on the Left rear quarter panel under the gas filling door.

You can't go wrong!

I love everything about my 2007 Forester. It has moved my daughter in and out of dorms (1 trip, 2 passengers, no other cars), and apartments in NYC, carried firewood more times than I can count, and filled up to the top with stuff to sell at flea markets. And it has also taken many of trips to Ohio and Virginia, and tons of day-to-day travel. It's nice to have heated seats and mirrors, and the sunroof, but those are just some of the perks. A great car.

Fast, Fun, Reliable, Go-get-just-about-anything-&-put-it-in-the-back car!

We have loved the reliability of this car, and we have LOVED the acceleration of this little grocery getter! We just wish that they offered a bluetooth or aux connection way back in 2006 when we bought it... Buy one for yourself or your college student.

Like: High clearance, good gas mileage, reputation of the company. (Add these to the positives above.) Dislike: See Cons above.
