    Subaru Forester Pros and Cons took the Subaru Forester on a 1000+ mile road trip in the thick of winter.


    Is the Subaru Forester a competent road trip vehicle or is it better relegated to errand-running closer to home? To answer this very question, I took a top-shelf Touring model on a long-weekend getaway with some close friends. The target was Munising, Michigan, an isolated small town on the Upper Peninsula’s weather-beaten northern shore. Round trip, this moderately long-haul adventure inflated the vehicle’s odometer by more than 1,000 miles, ample opportunity to get a real feel for how this crossover performs on extended drives.

    My wife has an '18 ForesterXT the '19 XV is mine. Just different vehicles. Naturally the XT is a beast and the XV a kitten. I just enjoy both.

    Interior looks sharp, but the "driver attention" thing would drive me bananas. I'm already on the verge of madness with the over-aggressive Lane keep Assist function (grrr) so would take a hard pass on the Eyesight system. Too bad...
    And yeah, it's underpowered for its new weight.

    My wife has a 2017 Forester, living in Michigan, it plows thru the snow like a champ and is comfortable for long trips to the east coast of the US. Just curious, has anyone else noticed that the brake pads and alignment go to hell in a hand basket in an unusually soon?
