2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

This is our
2nd
foester- we have a
2011
Touring model as well as
the new 2014
Touring
model
(
i vesrsions) The
cars are very
differant, might
as well be made
by 2
differant
companies , they
so unalike- The
major
differances
are
improvements
to the
tranny
(now
CVT)
smoother
than the 4 gear jobby of
our 2011--
beter gas
mileage
(3
to 4 miles
per gal improvement)
We have the
A/C on
continually ,
so do not get
EPA standard
ratings( 24/32 mpg)_pay
a penalty of
about
4 m/p/g
less on average-
BUT
the improvement of the
2011
Touring
model is a
average
of
3
to 5 m/p/g -
__
Interior
very
roomy- STARK

Best Features

Heated seats location of controls improved true 1 touch for moon roof return -----on at duskhead lights, Cushiony seats with nice bolsters--Roomy space w/ rear seats down- ease of access, glove box has no space to trap items in the rear of it---had the interior burled w/ a honey color simulated wood burl- $400 installed-- significantly beautified the interior- worth every cent --Bars for gasoline consumtion , better than a dial- day time running lights- CVT transmission---Fog lights --wide pening doors---Auto rear hatch up/ down-- longer sun visors with side glare pull outs -- Directional lights outside mirrors----loads easily

Worst Features

Glove compartment light---one touch windows , front passenger side--- A more intuitive audio and GPS system- complex multiple screens we stick with just ONE , no changes made- Overkill w/ so many -- Rear view camera screen should be on the bigger low screen , not the small one above...Arm rest does nor extend far enough -- - middle cubicle too far back --- change or cell phone slot on transmission stick deck is gone-- our 2011 has it louder clicking sound for blinkers----wrap around outside mirror signals , so the driver can see if they are on -- a real goof -- front map net
