EPA Mileage Joke

Vehicle

2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I love my Forester, but the mileage is horrible. After several road trips I am lucky to get 22 MPG. This I find unacceptable. I have been driving like a Grandpa as well. I also find the performance to be sluggish at high speed. I can only muster 108 MPH top end from this car. Pathetic. I will drive it and I am going to start driving it hard. I had hoped for a more economical vehicle. At this juncture I almost should have opted for the Honda.The only reason I dont go back to an Audi is the arrogant price.

Favorite Features

All wheel drive, great feel. Goes great in the bad weather!

Suggested Improvements

Better or more honest mileage rating. More power.
