2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
After breaking-in 3 weeks after purchase, I embarked in a 12-day road trip w/my wife from corona, ca to lubec, me racking 7,066 miles. Handling was responsive & superb, performed well on overtakes, freeway mileage varied on terrain & speed but the best was 30 mpg @ 70 mph on a flat road, felt safe on many hours driving in the rain and spacious enough for our cargo. Got home safely and can declare my subie passed with flying colors!
responsive steering and handling, mileage was not bad for an AWD SUV, great improvement on space from last generation
seat was not as comfortable for 10-12 hour drives (had to buy a pillow to last the road trip), some minor rattling that will come & go
