I have a 2014 Forester Premium model. I have found that you get better gas mileage with mid-grade gas - 89 octane. It bumped mileage up quite a bit. I will see after I have had the car a few more weeks to see if this holds true.Report it
Why on earth would you be on the road WITHOUT a 20/20 vision? Put your eyes on before you get in a car!Report it
My wife also didn't like the dim red dash lighting -- but we got the Touring model, which doesn't have that for the most part. Also our gas mileage varies but of course is not EPA city or combined numbers. Still it's good I think -- freeway driving we get between 27 and as high as 32 depending upon our speed. Best mileage is at 55mph. When you go 70 or 80 it goes down some -- but that is expected. Combined overall we seem to get around 24-25 mpg (not 27 like EPA). Stop and go city traffic is even lower of course. Glad I didn't get the Turbo since the mileage would be lower. Still, it feels good to see the display showing 25-30mpg on a trip -- which is much better than my former car and good for a car with all wheel drive and this roomy.Report it
