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


After test drives of the competition, the ride in this SUV was the best.
Steering is good, and handling is responsive.
The tilt/telescope wheel and power seat make it easy to get comfortable behind the wheel.
It's been good in the snow so far.
I installed aftermarket mud flaps, a good choice.

Paint is a little soft/scratches easily.
Engine is responsive, a little noisy but revs smoothly.
Gear shift is notchy but tolerable and fine when you get used to it.
The things I don't like about it, I decided at the test drive I could live with.
No complaints on those things.
The interior is well assembled, some materials are on the cheap side.

Best Features

Ride, handling, steering, fuel economy for AWD vehicle, driving position, rear seat, cargo area.

Worst Features

Seat warmer switch location, better (harder) paint, tighter shifter.
