2013 Subaru Forester 2.5X PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


This is my first Subaru, and I love it. I was looking for a comfortable and basic SUV that can handle weather, terrain, and carrying bikes, camping gear, whatever.
After 8 months of ownership I'm completely satisfied with the Forester. It's great fun to drive (the base model with manual transmission, I drove the automatic at the dealership and didn't like it), it's hard not to feel happy when you're in it. Handling is solid and it doesn't feel top heavy at all (helps that the Subaru engines are mounted very low to the ground).
In terms of interior comfort I love how spacious the interior is. The controls are a bit plasticky but I like them that way. The seats are quite comfortable.

Best Features

All wheel drive, spacious interior, visibility, huge cargo room, bluetooth

Worst Features

Improve the audio + speakers. Otherwise no complaints.
