2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
My last Subaru was while in college several years ago, and after driving this brand new one, I'm disappointed.
The engine sometimes sounds like one with 100k miles on it, the interior is cheap plastic.
The console is not at all user-friendly.
Sometimes when touching the gas pedal lightly the car will lurch forward as if I've gunned it, other times I have to really put it to the floor to get it to gradually accelerate.
I was expecting the engine to sound really quiet for more than just the first week.
When I start it sometimes different parts of the engine rev, sometimes it's smooth, you just never know.
Besides those things it runs well, but I've only put 3k miles on it.
