Subaru Forester: safety whenever, wherever

The Subaru Forester is made for change.

No matter which road, season or time of day, this vehicle is flexible and adapts to your journey on the road.

Wilkins Subaru Salesman Mike Sisco says, “The Subaru Forester is really unique because of three things: symmetrical all-wheel drive, the Boxer engine and safety.”

Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive and 170 hp Boxer engine create balance and stability to provide the driver with full control. Mike says the vehicle’s dynamic control helps when you’re going around turns to remain on your intended path.  If you start drifting, it will correct it for you and put you back on track.

“Its a lot easier to prevent than to fix the problem after its already happened,” Mike says.

And Subarus are definitely well known for their safety.

Subaru was the only manufacturer in 2010 to get top safety pick for every model. That pegs the Forester as a top safety pick with its front, side and side curtain airbags, excellent score for crash-test ratings, Break Assist system and Reinforced Steel Frame.

“One good way to think of it is Nascar,” Mike says. “Its kind of like a steel cage.”

The exterior styling is what sets the Forester apart from other Subarus like the Outback. Mike says it provides more of a SUV, sportier feel than a luxury feel.

Some of the Foresters quality features include Bluetooth capability, iPod and auxillary audio/video inputs, windshield wiper de-icer, a 10-way power driver’s seat and underfloor cargo-area storage.

And if you’re a pet owner, you’ll be glad to know that AAA just picked the Forester as a top dog-friendly vehicle.

If you’re still not convinced, come by Wilkins Automotive for a test drive. Mike Sisco and any one of our Subaru team will assist you and hopefully hand over the keys to your next Subaru.
