Love this new model but MPG not as advertised
By blny on
Vehicle2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Limited PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
ReviewMy 3rd Subaru, but first Forester. Never bought before because it was too small.
I am 6' tall, not huge, but this is the first Forester model I feel comfortable both in front and back.
My teenage boys are very comfy in the backseat, and they are my height.
My only complaint is the gas mileage.
I get 20-21 mpg when the local EPA MPG is 24.
That's a big difference, and I am not driving like a leadfoot !
I ease off on gas and coast to stop signs and red lights, and that's the only way I got close to 21mpg.
My much larger outback gets about 19-20 locally, so only a 1 mpg improvement with a smaller Subaru.
Best FeaturesSpacious in front and back sets ! Moonroof is huge, like driving a convertible.
Worst FeaturesThere is a blindspot for the driver looking over his right shoulder, across the middle of the car, as I do when I back out of my driveway every single day. Do not have same issue on my outback, this need to be addressed in a future model.
