Car reviews - Subaru - Forester - GT 5-dr wagon

THE steering wheel adjusts for height (rake) but not reach, although it is still relatively easy for to find a comfortable driving position. Electric window controls are located on the forward section of the door armrest - which is angled towards the driver - just below the electric mirror switches. There is a separate switch to activate the heating function for the mirrors, which also heats the base of the windscreen where the wiper blades rest. A roof console houses map lights, a clock, sunglass holder and the sunroof controls (when fitted). The driver's sunvisor has two cardholders and a pen holder. The internal fuel release is cable operated, but there is no separate release for the rear door as it operates on the central locking.
