My 6th Subaru
By subiedriver6 on


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


This is my 6th Subaru and my 4th Forester.
The last one was a 2009 that I put 84K trouble free miles on.
The Forester isn't necessarily the best car out there, but it is one of the best to fit all of the necessary categories of AWD, mpg, cost, space, style, and reliability.
I have recommended Subaru to my family and friends, and no one has been disappointed.
I would like them to update the automatic transmission, but Subaru engines seem to operate better at higher rpm's.
The 2012 seats also seem more comfortable than previous years.
The maintenance program of 7500 mile oil changes does make a difference in cost of keeping it on the road and trouble free.

Best Features

AWD, mpg, space, ground clearance

Worst Features

under carriage shields should be standard
