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.

It is fitted with a bonnet protector, roof rails, tow ball, cargo barrier, cargo mat (very old), rubber footwell mats, a newer radio/cd player (with bluetooth) as the original one died, and a full-sized spare wheel in good condition.

Up for sale is my much loved Forester - I am moving overseas and am sad to see it go. It has been regularly serviced and just had new tires put on. It also had a new gearbox put in about 3 years ago. I have been using this car to get around town and take camping, it handles well on tar and dirt roads. Mechanically, the car is running well but does have a small oil leak, typical of this age of Forester. Aesthetically, the paint is good but it has a few dints over the body, there is a

I am selling my favourite Mum Car.. the 2011 Turbo Diesel Forester. Mechanically the car has been great for the 3 years I've had it... but even more so, it has been an excellent pack-like horse, carting about all the unnecessary items a new mum insists on taking everywhere. It was serviced every 10,000km and despite the few scratches from public car parks & a sleep deprived mother it's still in pretty good condition. I have absolutely loved this car, and am sad to be downsizing. Reg
