SUBARU FORESTER Used Car Review

Subaru joined the 'soft-roader' SUV club in 1997 when it used the platform of its famous Impreza small car as the basis for the Forester. The model has become the Japanese brand's most popular model in Australia, as well as being one of the country's favourite SUVs. Currently into its fourth generation, an all-new Forester has been unveiled and is due in late 2018.

Pros

Cons

  • Fantastic all-round visibility
  • Clever Eyesight safety tech on more recent models
  • Ride comfort consistently good across generations
  • Permanent all-wheel drive (most rivals use a part-time AWD system)
  • Servicing costs higher than average and limited capped-price program
  • Full-size spare reduces boot space
  • Cabin design lacks flair and premium feel
  • For light-duty off-roading only
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

Automatic 2.5L (EJ25) I bought this car as a cheap run around, but ended up with an XT forester, so this needs to go. The car drives well and would make a great first car. It has plenty of storage space if you ever need need to move stuff around. It's got new rear tyres, fronts have ~50% New radiator and coolant Comes with roof racks. There's a couple of small dents in the RH front guard (pictured), but other than that the body/paint is in good condition. Vic Rego until 16/06/20
