2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
Review
I will come back to update in a few months but I wanted to get my initial ownership impressions out there. Pros: Engine/Turbo - makes a car this large really fun to drive Transmission - High torque CVT with SI modes is best CVT I've driven. Not as fun as VW/Audi's dual clutch DSG, but still very good. Interior Room/Space - Car feels much bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. Exterior Styling - I've had three unrelated people tell me that the car's profile reminds them of a Porsche Cayenne - I'll take it! Cons: Sunroof: Rattles like crazy when open and doesn't have a tilt function. Seats: Not uncomfortable but not good either, even with the sport side bolsters
Favorite Features
Turbo, SI drive, AWD, good looking 18'' wheels, interior room, paddle shifters, much improved styling, ground clearance, standard backup camera
Suggested Improvements
-The fact that I can't get satellite radio without going aftermarket in the premium trim is a huge oversight -6 speaker stereo system is adequate but should be better in this trim level -Sunroof rattles at speed when open -Vanity mirrors should have lights -Steering wheel and gear selector should have a sportier look and feel in the XT -SPT should start making manufacturer supported bolt-ons such as exhausts and cold air intakes
