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 is a very nice wagon, but we are in our eighties and we have done all our long trips visiting rellies all over Australia, so now is the time to sell and get a little car. We have not had any mechanical troubles and now that we are selling it, we had it completely checked by Midas at Magill. They said the brakes were good (40%) until the next service in 3 months, and that the transmission oil should be changed then as well. The only other faults were in line with the mileage and age.
