Vehicle2013 Subaru Forester 2.5X PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewThis is our first Subaru.
We sold our 2000 Honda CRV, which we loved, and thought the Forester provided the best value among the competition.
Initially our best gas mileage was about 22 during a half hour commute, but after our first oil change it rose to 24.5 on the commuting run which is more acceptable.
There are no blind spots with this vehicle and it drives great.
The AWD is as good, if not better, than my Silverado truck.
It scales my steep driveway covered with 4" of snow and ice with ease, something the CRV had trouble doing.
It is a nice looking car that we hope will serve us as well as the CRV.
The base vehicle with alloy wheel package is a great value compared to the others
- Outward visibility
- Rain snow traction
- Resale value
- Maintenance cost

Review Update: we now have 13,000 miles on the Forester and have not changed our opinion. The gas mileage is getting better as time passes - maybe it's simply because spring has finally arrived. This vehicle is great so far. We would definitely buy another when the time comes.Report it
