2011 Subaru Forester SUV 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Wishing now I didn't get the standard. Shifting is a hassle and it's always been kind of touchy. Thought it would get better, but after 4 years it still stalls if not babied.

This car is practical and just always goes. In the 68k miles I have owned the car, not a single mechanical problem. Handles snow really well. Excellent visibility-there a virtually no blind spots.

Awesome Car! Bought my wife a 2011 Forester Premium in July. Our first Subie. I loved it so much I went and bought a 2011 Forester for myself. Got the 2.5 X(base) 5 speed. I was a GM owner for a number of years. I am sold on Subaru! Solid reliable cars. I have no complaints!

Review

I have had this car now for six months and am thrilled with it. I previously had a 2006 Outback, and this 2011 Forester has more interior room and gets even better mileage than the Outback did. I consistently get 32 mpg and have gotten as high as 35 mpg. I attribute this to the manual transmission. This is amazing since it is full time AWD. I live in Montana so this is absolutely necessary. I tried to seriously consider other brands, especially those by Chevy and Ford, however, I could not get within several thousand. The Nissan Rougue has come out with a similar price since I bought the Forester. I try to buy American when I can, but I just couldn't find a competing model.
