Good Value for AWD
By Chris on


2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


We’ve had a 2011 Forester 2.5X for about a month and are very pleased. The only fault we’ve found is that there is more road noise than we’re used to. Ride is smooth and feels solid. It has plenty of power while getting slightly better than 30 mpg on the highway. The 5 speed manual shifts smoothly, although it feels like it could use a sixth gear. The rear seats fold flat, giving tons of cargo space with built-in hooks galore. Love the audio jack in the center console for the iPod, although the console itself is too far back. Under the hood, all fluids you need to be concerned with are clearly marked and the oil filter is right up front on the topside. Can’t wait to try it in the snow!

Best Features

AWD, cargo space, center info display, audio jack, timing chain.

Worst Features

Diesel engine for U.S.! Reduce road noise, 6-speed manual transmission, center console placement.
