Should have gotten another car
By AMR on


2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD w/Premium Pkg,VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


The car has a non turbo 4 and it has very poor performance and gets dismal mileage, 15 to 16 in the city, 20 to 21 on the highway. It rattles daily, the carpet finish is poor, it takes 3 to 5 turns to start in the rain and the nav system is not only hard to use it is very bad at getting you from A to B in the easiest way possible.

Worst Features

The car has poor performance, soft handling and is very noisy. I know it is a utilitarian vehicle but for $432 per month lease I feel like I am being robbed daily.
