2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/Premium Pkg,VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


The sticker said 20 mpg city, 26 mpg hwy, average around 22 mpg. I drove this new vehicle in mixed city/hwy for the first week and got 26 mpg. Then we took it on a 500 mile trip over the weekend and I got 31.6 mpg. When I finally break this vehicle in, I'll let you know if it gets any better. Amazing! It bought it for its utility, safety, and dependability. This gas thing is a big bonus.

Best Features

AWD, excellent visibility, safety five-star features (airbags all over), comfortable interior, nice exterior, road clearance, and, oh yeah, the huge moonroof!

Worst Features

Level the cargo area floor. It has a slope to the rear.
