2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

wife and I bought this car for our 20th anniversary. We bought it based on consumer reports and the companies image of being safe and reliable. It turns out that this is all hype and BS as this is the worst piece of junk I have ever bought. This car went through oil like crazy. Every 500-1000 miles I had to put 3-4 quarts of oil in. I diligently did this as Subaru tells you that it is normal to burn 1-2 quarts per 1000 miles. The end result was a blown motor on a 3 year old car. Told Subaru america about the problem and they offered no help whatsoever. We had to put a used motor in the car at a cost of over $4000 as a rebuild of the motor would have cost $7000. Beware people.This car is JUNK

2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first time owning a Subaru and I am very pleased.
I am 6'8" tall and could not be happier in this vehicle.
The leg room and head room are fantastic, the ride is very comfortable, and the AWD feature is great.
The exterior design is sharp and the interior design is simple.
There is plenty of cargo room and the sun roof does not reduce the amount of headroom I have.
The driver seat is very comfortable for long road trips and my passengers have commented on their comfortable seats.
The Touring edition provides several key features that make it worth the extra money when compared to the Limited.
I've only driven it 2,000 plus miles, but absolutely love this vehicle.


Best Features

- Head and leg room - Comfortable seats - Sun roof - Simple dash design - All Wheel Drive - Touring edition provides LED lights and puddle lights - i-Pod and USB ports - Heated windshield wipers - Rear seats fold down with push of button - Backup camera - Bluetooth - Rear seats can recline - Dual climate control - 4 Cylinder engine performs well I hope that the Subaru will be as reliable as the Consumers Report says it is.


Worst Features

- Lights for vanity mirrors - Power passenger seats - Gas mileage thus far is average (22 - 24) - Automatic lights - Automatic door lock when vehicle put in Drive - Enhanced stereo system
