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


This is my first subaru and first AWD car. I live in new england and i bought this car to be primarily a winter car in the snow since i have a backup corolla for summer drives on the cheap. So far we really like the car since it saved our rear ends from the brutal winter of 2011. Literally i could drive the car out of the two feet snow and salt bank in front of the driveway left by the snow plows. Then call the snow removal guy to come and clean the driveway while i am at work. Like others said the inside however is cheap plastic, not enough heat, square coffee cup holders, non adjustable passenger seats nned improvement. However i only paid $20,500 w alloy out the door and i am v frugal!

Best Features

Powerful AWD 170HP engine, safety features, low insurance.even lower than 2011 corolla, alloy wheels, snow handling

Worst Features

Engine Noise control Properly designed cup holders More heat Adjustable passenger seat height (std in 2012 models) Glove compartment light
