When you are looking for a used vehicle, consider a used Subaru Forester nearby Frankfort. Over 90 percent of all Subaru’s sold in Frankfort over the last 10 years are still performing well. This fact alone speaks highly of the vehicle’s quality and outstanding reliability.
Before 2009, the Forester was more akin to a tall station wagon rather than a sports utility vehicle. This is no longer the case. In 2009, the Forester was recast as an authentic crossover SUV. A four-cylinder, horizontally opposed “boxer” engine powers the vehicle. The engine lies low in the engine compartment, reducing the vehicle’s center of gravity, which in turn, improves handling characteristics.
The third generation Forester is longer and wider than its predecessors and has considerably more ground clearance. The arrangement of the rear suspension control-arm results in a larger cargo area and enhanced cornering ability. The unibody design was strengthened, resulting in a top IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) rating.
The increase in length and width resulted in a larger cabin. The backseat room is best in class and has plenty of headroom for even the tallest passengers. The seat height makes it easy to get into and out of the vehicle.
The instrument cluster is simple, and all controls are readily accessible to the driver.
Updated Drive Train
The proven boxer engine is available in two variants. The base engine delivers 170 HP. The turbocharged XT model delivers 224 HP. Both engines are 2.5-L, four-cylinder.
All-wheel drive has been and still is, standard. Most four-wheel drive crossovers deliver power to the rear wheels only when slip is detected. The Subaru Forester is all-wheel drive, all the time.
People who have purchased a used Subaru Forester love the “car-like” composure on all road surfaces, regardless of the weather.
