The salesman was very helpful. My sister got a car from him. I would recommend to go see him if you need a car. The world Subaru has a nice show room. I trade in my car, and I transferred my registration and able to keep my olde car plate.

Love this Car!

I traded in a 2014 Forester XT. This 2017 touring non-turbo rides more smoothly, is peppier, has more responsive brakes and is much quieter. FINALLY, the electronics are in the competitive range of other manufacturers. The bluetooth works well and I'm not drowned out by road noise. The bluetooth even reads aloud my text messages (Windows phone). I am happy to have the memory seat, heated steering wheel and power passenger window. Nice long leg room and plenty of headroom in the front seat. My gas mileage moving into the second tank of gas already "broke" 30 mpg...I expect it to further improve. Complaints...Subaru could further expand on its electronics...Toyota and Honda are better. Storage space inside doesn't take advantage of "dead" space. But overall, it's a great comfortable care with the best visibility!

Nice but needs improvement

Reviewed by Crossover supporter

My 2017 Forester is nice but needs some packaging changes including more storage up front, brighter interior lighting, speed sensitive locks, lighted passenger window and lock buttons and power accessories that can be used briefly when the car is off. Remote start should also be part of the cold weather package. Power and transmission shifts are different when a/c is on. Could be better.

I just bought 2017 Forester car based on reviewed on the website. Interior is poorly design and Car start sacking when you turn on A/C in a park position. Price is little expensive when you compare similar car.

Our second Forester

Reviewed by Topflight

Our first Forester is a 2006 model. We really enjoy that car. We decided to trade in our Grand Caravan for the 2017 Forester. This is a great little SUV. Did I say little? It has much more room than the 2006. It is also much quieter and smoother. The CVT transmission is great. If it is as reliable as the 2006, we're going to be very happy. Our salesperson at Sharrett Subaru was top notch. Very knowledgeable and probably the best car purchasing experience we've ever had.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
