Hi All,

I'm about to buy a forester to transport my two kids and get the family into the mountains without having a huge SUV. I was hoping you all could answer a couple questions for me...
-How comfortable is the Forester with the usual "4WD High Clearance" forest roads? We're not serious offroaders, we just need to get to the trailhead.
-How much better are the 2009/2010 foresters compared to the earlier ones offroad?
Thanks

The Forester, with almost 9" of ground clearance, beats other vehicles in it's class such as RAV4, CRV, and Tucson. I frequently drive Forest Service roads and ground clearance is a major reason why I bought aForester instead of the competition. Although there are some FS roads that require more ground clearance, I find that my Forester can handle most.

The wishbone suspension on the MY 09/10 helps a lot.
