2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


My wife and I are "heavyweights" so we appreciate extra leg and hip room. The Forester has plenty for us. I like the peppy power train and tight turning radius. It's like driving a go-kart. More power than I expected from a 4 cylinder 170 HP engine. I think the fuel economy is great, We've gotten 33 mpg on the highway and up to 24 mpg in the city. That far exceeds the 22 mpg EPA estimate on the sticker. I believe that a 6-speed auto transmission would help increase the gas mileage even more. We have the "Limited" edition which has the upgraded interior, but the interior seems a bit cheap and thin plastic is abundant.

Best Features

Moon roof, peppy 4-cylinder, Tight turning radius, Back seat room.

Worst Features

6-speed automatic transmission, nicer interiors, auto on-off headlights.
