    Looks like the mitsubishi outlander. Nothing to get excited about.
    Subaru really needs to flush their design team and hire some new ones.

    A little more horsepower and a bit more torque plus better gas mileage;
    looks like improvements to me.

  8. Obviously, Big Jim should be purchasing something more closely engineered
    to his liking. I might suggest he take a look at the new line of Massey-
    Ferguson tractors. ;-)

    Thanks. I like it. Style tending towards the crossovers but only
    minor.
    I had a '98 which was totaled and replaced by an '03 and recently
    bought an '08 f
    or my wife. Only a discerning eye can tell the difference between
    Forester model years
    but improvements appear continuous and are under the hood. Forester
    competition is
    tending toward crossover vehicles, which to me look like hatchbacks.
    Always liked
    hatchbacks but do not prefer over SUV.

    I see Subaru did away with the frameless windows, not a big fan of
    them, I know some folks like them but, they were a problem for me on
    my 2000 Forester

    Can you really tell on the 2009?

    I think Subaru has a winner here. The car looks very nice.

    I love the panoramic windows, every car manufacturer
    seems to follow the trend of building cars/suv's with these
    ridiculous short or narrow windows, which make the car
    look like a Loomis armoured vehicle, or some Hummer.

    Brrrrr, the new 2009 Vibe and Scion are the ugliest examples:

    The Forester is one beautiful car.
    I hope to be buying the 2009 one day.

    The vibe looks far nicer than the new subarus. The new subes are
    designed by women for women

    :. The new subes are designed by women for women

    Well, if that is true, then ot seems from the pictures that
    they've done a splendid job on that 2009 Forester, but if
    you are a fan of childish comic-book like American styling
    then by all means get a GM. A Monte Carlo, or an Impala,
    or a Cobalt, or any Pontiac will do.. If you're into American
    gangster themes get a Daimler-Chrysler product. If you're
    a GI Joe kinda type the Hummer is the ultimate toy for you.

    To each his own.

    Wow. Not only are you homophobic, you're also misogynistic.

    No homo-phobic just homo-disgusted. There are cars for women. We need
    some manly cars too.
