2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


800 miles so far for this fairbanks, alaskan vehicle.
driving on ice requires patience since it slides around a lot -- better treaded tires will be the next investment, though have not driven it in much snow.
not happy with the yokohama's.
the back hatch has some probs closing all the way - have to open and slam it a few times to get it to securely shut.
i love the huge moonroof and the visibility out back.
the sound quality of the premium stereo is a bit stinky -- not what i expected, and have to crank it if i want to hear it.
we'll keep on driving the overpriced car and see what happens.

Best Features

huge moonroof, great rear visibility

Worst Features

better tires for snow and ice, better premium stereo, more accessories for back mats to cover the bottom with seats down for dogs.
