2011 Highlights

For 2011, Subaru Forester 2.5X models have a revised 2.5-liter engine that boosts torque and fuel economy slightly. The 2.5XT Limited trim has been dropped and a couple of new trim levels have been added: the 2.5X Touring and the 2.5XT Touring, positioned above the Limited trim. Several trims get improved audio features, while the 2.5X Premium gets a new optional TomTom navigation system. An eight-way power driver seat (with power-adjustable lumbar support) is now standard on the 2.5XT Premium, and Bluetooth is now standard on all Foresters except the 2.5X.


Pros

  • Standard all-wheel drive
  • roomy cabin with ample cargo space
  • comfortable ride
  • strong turbocharged engine on XT trims.

Cons

  • Outdated four-speed automatic transmission
  • unimpressive fit and finish.

Love it, fun to drive, but some problems
We love our Forester, for the most part. It is the perfect size. I don't have to sink down to get in and better yet, don't have to yank myself high up to climb into it. Driving it is fun, very responsive and great turning radius. Visibility is excellent and parking is easy. However, we have 2 strong complaints and a minor one. First, the radio is terrible! The fm sounds like hollow am radio. Next, the passenger seat is highly uncomfortable, non adjustable, and sunk down so low it's hard to see over the dash. The minor complaint is storage. Glove box is tiny, cup holders are square and bottles routinely fall over. In-door cupholders are also flawed.
WARNING!!! Make sure to check your Oil!!!
If you own a 2011 or newer Forester with the new engine requiring synthetic oil, Check/add oil frequently! Mine requires 1 qt added every 1800 miles on average. I read an account of another 2011 Forester owner who went just over 10,000 miles without checking or changing the oil, and the engine ran out of oil, seized and was destroyed. You will need to add 3-4 qts in between oil changes. Engine rattles loudly at startup for a few seconds. Subaru needs to fix the problem of oil use. Most people are not diligent about checking and topping up their oil. There will be many unhappy owners.
Excessive Oil Consumption destroys all value
Let me begin by saying I own three Subarus and I used to love the company. However there is a defect in many 2011 to 2014 Forester engines. The defect cause them to consume massive amounts of the 0W20 oil the specs require. The problem is so bad a class action law suit has been filed. Google this story subaru-excess-oil-consumption-problem-may-lead-to-engine-failure-lawsuit My car has the defect and Subaru refuses to take full responsibility. I can't sell it to anyone in good faith and so I'm stuck pouring hundred of dollars of oil into it every year. My Subaru dealer quoted $5000 to fix the defect. It is an invisible problem, so buyer beware. Update - Subaru finally admitted fault (under pressure of a class action suit) and replaced the entire short block and whatever other little bits and pieces were necessary. Lo and behold, no more oil consumption issues, well at least not in the first 10K miles since the replacement. However, in the meantime, other issues have arisen. I had"heard noise for a long while from the wheels. I assumed it was tire noise, as the car was driving fine and the Subaru service centers did not identify anything. Within a couple of months I had to replace a wheel bearing in the front and another in the rear a in bad show I'm told a third is in bad shape. I also just had to replace both front axles and now I am told I have to replace the rear driver side U-joint which requires me to replace an entire drive shaft. I've never had to perform any of these repairs on any of my other subarus. I have had axles go on other cars, but they were 15+ years old, this car is five years old. In sum, I think this was a lemon I purchased and I'm still soured on Subaru.
More About This Model

It used to be that people bought cars like the 2011 Subaru Forester because they truly needed the capabilities offered by such unconventional, all-weather compact crossovers. They were "Subaru People." They lived in rainy (or snowy) northern climes. They wore flannel shirts without irony and duck shoes because they had to keep their feet dry. Their everyday environs included charming wooded glens, streams brimming with trout, densely forested mountainsides and rain-choked rivers threatening to overflow their banks.

But these days, commuting San Diegans and mall-bound Dallas DINKs have joined snowshoeing Vermonters to avail themselves of the all-weather Subaru. The promise of the all-wheel drive is indelibly woven into the Subaru story, but the company has done much to broaden its appeal, so it expresses not just all-terrain mobility but also a quiet, unpretentious ruggedness and performance that's as useful in the city as it is in Maine. It turns out that Subaru isn't just for the flannelled elite who navigate Nor'easters anymore.

In the crowded party of compact crossovers, the Forester is the earnest choice. It eschews the swoopy design of the Honda CR-V, offers only two rows of seating unlike the Toyota RAV4 (which offers a third row as an option) and isn't as much fun to pilot as the Mazda CX-7 or the less expensive Kia Sportage. But despite the strengths of its rivals, the 2011 Subaru Forester is an excellent choice for those who value a smooth ride, useful cargo area and comfortable passenger accommodations in an out-of-the-ordinary all-weather package. Galoshes are definitely optional.
