2012 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I checked out some other choices before I decided on this car. I am 52, I have bought 11 new vehicles so far in my life.This is great my best so far. Very little road noise, very smooth ride. Doors are solid. Great visibility. Basic stereo sounds very good. The clearance is terrific, great for exploring in rural Arizona, where 4 x 4 is not needed but added clearance is. Seriously this is the most happy I have ever been with a vehicle in my life. My first Subaru, my first Japanese vehicle.

Best Features

The oil filter is so ridiculously easy to get to, it begs for me to do my own oil changes. The Air Conditioning blows cooler with more power on setting #2 than my 2007 Ford F150 does on setting #4. My gas mileage is 26-28 on highway.

Worst Features

Put the roof slats in all the vehicles standard. Also put in satelite radio.
