I am looking teen son. Should I insist on VDC and Curtain

Customer Question

Hello, I am looking for Subaru for my teen son. Should I insist on VDC and Curtain Airbags? Looking at a nice 2005 Forester XS that has neither... Hard to find used Outbacks or Foresters that are so equipped and also affordable.

Hi, my name is***** is a very good system, it stabilizes the vehicle in skids and other situations, its nit neccessary, but works very well, and the side curtains are also anpther good thing to have, but as you know, not all of the vehicle came with these, VDC was ony an option from 2001 to 2009, when they became standard on all subarus, so the only way to guarantee it has it is to buy one from 2009 and up, Tim
