Love the boxer!

Vehicle2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI love Subaru boxer engines. Yes, they're a tad noisy, IF you're used to a V8. Boxers need to REV, the power comes in between 3500-5000 RPM. Let it rip!! Once you understand this, our new Forester is is everything we've come to love in a a Subie. It all becomes clear when it snows and rains hard! These cars are absolutely on rails... Subarus are not luxury rides, but unique, sensible cars that keep on giving value, day after day. I'm so happy that the new car still feels light and responsive, rather than bloated and pillow-like as so many small SUV's do. My Forester feels like a tall, maneuverable CAR, not a downsized truck or grandpa's Town Car.
Best FeaturesRoad feel & body stiffness, smooth engine at high revs, AWD system operational smoothness, slap shifter w/ sport mode, easy access to oil filter and common maintenance items. Subaru seems to have finally hired a real body designer. The Spark Silver really looks nice!
Worst FeaturesA little more internal door insulation, more intuitive Bluetooth system setup for multiple phones, vents to help the rear tailgate shut.
