a definite value pick for a compact SUV
By jamesosan on
2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
This vehicle is blast! A nostalgic cruiser for the senses. The panaramic roof set back brings all the smells of a coastal day trip to the senses. The turbo 4-boxer compliments the incredible handling. The overstated concerns for a 4 speed tranny is an effort in futility. If we were questioning the lastest porsche with this tranny in play than there is a viable arguement. But this is a compact SUV for the small family or weekend enthusiast. If a gearhead is looking for the ultimate in performance than its an overstated perception that compact SUV's are not race cars. This car is a blast. When I pop the roof open it draws my three year olds attention away from the tv and towards the sky!
Gas economy, safety, spacious for a person over 6 feet tall in the front and back seats. Turbo charged 4-boxer, blue tooth phone capabilities(voice prompts very responsive), perfect product for the standard needs of a consumer.
Wish I would have purchased the back up camera my wife is horrible driver!
