1998 Subaru Forester Review

I personally find the descriptor “crossover” to be a bit of a dirty word as I find most crossovers to be, in general, big, heavy, and sloppy, yet somehow they still manage to sell like hot cakes. However, one crossover that feels quite the opposite, and actually has quite the cult following, is the Subaru Forester, the smallest SUV the company has offered...

2010 Subaru Forester XT Premium Review

Just managed to trade-in my beloved Forester XT after 5 fantastic years of ownership. It was hard to part with her but that mostly had to do with the blind adoration I held for this ever-so-practical family hauler. In manual form, it seemed to combine the duties of carting the family and our cargo around as well as provide a little fun and frivolity with it's 2...

2008 Subaru Forester XS Review

Young family? Teenager? Live on a farm? Like going to the beaching style and comfort? The "fully sick subie" as my mates describe it or the 2008 Subaru Forester is the perfect car for any job.

Having owned this car since new, I rolled my eyes somewhat knowingly as Subaru finally joined the capped-price servicing bandwagon, albeit many years late...

2011 Subaru Forester S-Edition Review

Traded in an MY08 WRX in for a MY11 S Edition, we wanted a bigger car with more clearance and can still go hard when asked. After a few camping trips fully loaded, soft off road and some beach driving I can say that the car has been awesome. It has plenty of ground clearance at 225mm and compared to the rex a lot of space...


A delightful car, easy to live with and a cracker to drive. Handling could be a little tentative but don't let that stop you from enjoying the overwhelming driving pleasure that is yours to savour.


I needed a city car with plenty of room in the back. I also wanted constant 4 wheel drive for when I get out of town and when the roads are wet. I chose the Forester XT Premium over the Tiguan and the Freelander. I felt I got better value for money with the premium version of a very good car...
