2014 Forester ROCKS
By jra32a on


2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


My new 2014 Forester is the 4th Subaru I have owned - 2001 Outback, 2005 Outback, 2009 Tribeca were prior.
Without a doubt the 2014 Forester mirrors the engineering and design competence at Subaru. The 2013 and prior were not really spacious and the overall comforts were missing.
That has all been fixed! The new interior is well designed, roomy, the seats are awesome, and the driver controls, warning lights, instruments, etc. are well arranged and easy to view.
The new Lineartronic transmission is silky smooth and saves a couple mpg.
Cargo area is ample, and on the 2.5i Touring, the rear seats recline. That is a nice feature.
This vehicle almost got 5 stars in every category from me.

Best Features

New Lineartronic transmission, larger glass area for much improved visibility, roomy passenger and driver compartment

Worst Features

Just one......the rear view camera should be on the dash in the nav screen - not a tiny screen up on the dash. Using a calibrated rear vision camera is precision slow speed driving and one needs to easily see the parking lot markings, proximity, etc.
