Subaru Forester

Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.

0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.

Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.

Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.

Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.

Updates and notes

August 11 Crash Test: 2008 Forester get 5 Stars for front and side impact from NHTSA

May 23,  2008s start arrive
May 2007 What can you do to a Forester XT? 'There are a number of cars that we drive, get out of, and think: This would be really great, if only we could give it more power, or tweak the suspension, or… So now we’ve put our money where our collective mouth is—the goal was to keep each modification under $1000..' the whole story
11/20 Crash Tests: Forester XT Sports, Tribeca, and Legacy GT Limited sedan with navigation are on the list of only 13 cars that earned the top rating from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. "The Institute rates vehicles... based on performance in high-speed front and side crash tests plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. The first requirement for a vehicle to become a TOP SAFETY PICK is to earn good ratings in all three Institute tests. A new requirement for 2007 is that the winning vehicles must offer ESC (electronic stability control, Subaru's is called VDC). This addition is based on Institute research indicating that ESC significantly reduces crash risk, especially the risk of fatal single-vehicle crashes, by helping drivers maintain control of their vehicles during emergency maneuvers."

Safety and vehicle roll-over questions: the Forester meets federal safety standards for Passenger Vehicles and  does not require a 'roll over' warning label.
Most other small sport utilities are required to have a safety warning that they don't handle like a normal car and extra care must be taken to prevent roll over and injury

All Forester models have
new for 2008 Tire Pressure Monitoring on all models
Front Driver Airbag: Dual stage driver airbag deploys according to the driver’s distance to the steering wheel, measured by a sensor on the seat track.
Front Passenger Airbag: Dual stage passenger airbag deploys according to occupant etc. A light by the upper cosole indicates on or off (see photo).
A sensor device detects and measures weight, position on the seat, position of the seat to determine if it’s occupied and if so by a child or adult to control air bag deployment.
