Subaru took Shortcuts on New Forrester
By jerrylevy on


2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Very spacious for its size, and very comfortable front seats with good leg room in the back and pleased with gas mileage. Not a bad long distance driving car and four people will be very comfortable for a six hour drive. However, there is virtually no pickup. I have experienced a lot of rattles, no drycleaning/cloths hook in the vehicle, no temp gauge-just a light like my father's 1973 Impala wagon, cargo compartment has dismal dim light. Dealer has tried to fix rattles but they can't. For some reason when I turn on the vent, I get heated air. Dealer said it is just a design flaw.
