Forester in the mountains
By brunte on
Vehicle2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review200 miles daily commute in a Chevy Suburban is not practical, so I got a Subie. Best MPG at 29,9, worst at 26. Without exceeding speed limits (by much) the Forester "saves" more than 50 hours per year due to superior cornering on the mountain roads I travel. After driving it for 12,000 miles, I just regret not spending a few thousands more for a turbo.
Best FeaturesSafe cornering at high (legal) speed. Good gas mileage. And of course - NOTHING beats a Subaru in snowy road conditions.
Worst FeaturesCruise control works great going uphill and in the flatlands, but not going down the mountain - on down slopes you need to turn it off or risk a speeding ticket.
