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.

This car is best suited for parts only unless you are willing/able to fix the clutch which has gone on the car (at least $1500). The car can be towed, free, to you. The car comes with its manual. 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. The bike rack bit on the tow ball, shown in the photo, will be re

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

This car is my best mate and I swear by 2005 Foresters. Manual, all wheel drive, rego till April, has never skipped a beat. Very safe, have driven through thick snow and never slipped. Cheap to run. So much room, have seeped in the back. Backpackers dream, or drivers new to a manual very easy to drive. *Selling cheap as there are some superficial problems. I have had a few ‘roo incidents’ so I bought a ute with a massive bull bar hence selling this car. As result of said roo incidents there is
