Description: Used 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5I Touring for sale - $17,998, 71,039 miles with 4WD/AWD, Leather Seats, Harman Kardon Sound, Satellite Radio Ready, Rear View Camera, Panoramic Sunroof
Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (4.267 reviews) terrible gas mileage. I upgraded from a honda fit because I needed more space to haul around my booth (I am an artists who does a lot of craft shows and needed a vehicle that could handle the weight) I expected the mileage to be close to the sticker (22city/27hwy) and seriously, total lies. I drive "highway" often, but the only time I saw 27 mpg was on a road trip (1400+ miles). I was regretting not getting the VW tdi diesel wagon, but now that VW was exposed for fraud regarding emissions, I am only moderately ok with choosing the subaru.

Location: CarMax Dulles in Dulles, Virginia 20165
Description: Used 2020 Subaru Forester for sale - $26,998, 1,582 miles with 4WD/AWD, Satellite Radio Ready, Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera, Auxiliary Audio Input, Alloy Wheels
Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Gray Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) The Subaru Forester XT version has a LOT more pep and responsiveness than the 2.5 litre engined Forester. Gas mileage suffers a little (we are currently getting between 24 and 28 highway and 20-24 in town) but the additional acceleration more than makes up for that. I like the AWD and the option to "manually" shift the car, and the S1 and S# gearing and suspension adjustment for windy roads or snow or rain. If you are really in the snow, you can select XMode which is like a four wheel drive mode for up to 25 miles per hour (it automatically drops out of Xmode above 24 MPH). Real leather seats. Nice stitching. Well appointed with dual air and heat. Heated front seats. HUGE sunroof with windbreak at front. Handles wonderfully.

Popular Trims

2008-2013-Third Generation Subaru Forester

In 2008, Subaru updated the Forester line to embrace a crossover SUV design. The 2013 Subaru Forester serves as a bookend for this generation, taking advantage of a half-decade worth of refinements. The 2013 Subaru Forester XT trims upgrade the standard 170 horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® to a faster 224-horsepower turbocharged variation. You can choose from six trim levels with the 2.5X, 2.5X Premium, 2.5X Limited, and 2.5X Touring all sporting the standard engine with the 2.5XT Premium and 2.5XT Touring featuring the turbocharged variation. Third generation models feature a standard five-speed manual transmission and an available four-speed automatic transmission. 

2014-2018 (Fourth Generation Subaru Forester)

In 2014, Subaru released the redesigned, reworked fourth-generation Subaru Forester. This generation carries over the standard 170 horsepower 2.5L four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine. Additionally, fourth-generation models feature an even roomier interior giving you more room for gear and groceries. The 2017 Subaru Forester features a mid-generation exterior style facelift with features like an aggressive front grille and restyled lighting fixtures.

The fourth-generation Forester is available in six trims with the 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Touring, and 2.5i Limited coming with the standard engine while the 2.0XT Premium and 2.0XT Touring trims feature the turbocharged engine. Fourth-generation models without a moonroof feature an increased 34.4 cubic feet of cargo space that expands to 74.7 cubic feet with the rear seat lowered. If you're looking to take advantage of four models worth of refinements, you should check out the 2018 Subaru Forester, which is the last of the fourth-generation models.

Love our Subaru Forester XT

The Subaru Forester XT version has a LOT more pep and responsiveness than the 2.5 litre engined Forester. Gas mileage suffers a little (we are currently getting between 24 and 28 highway and 20-24 in town) but the additional acceleration more than makes up for that. I like the AWD and the option to "manually" shift the car, and the S1 and S# gearing and suspension adjustment for windy roads or snow or rain. If you are really in the snow, you can select XMode which is like a four wheel drive mode for up to 25 miles per hour (it automatically drops out of Xmode above 24 MPH). Real leather seats. Nice stitching. Well appointed with dual air and heat. Heated front seats. HUGE sunroof with windbreak at front. Handles wonderfully.

Pros

  • Safety:
  • Ride and Handling:
  • Weather Versatility:

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: A Turbo charged engine is NOT going to be a gas miser.

- Bill NoneayourBus, 2015 Subaru Forester

big car, nice but terrible city gas mileage

terrible gas mileage. I upgraded from a honda fit because I needed more space to haul around my booth (I am an artists who does a lot of craft shows and needed a vehicle that could handle the weight) I expected the mileage to be close to the sticker (22city/27hwy) and seriously, total lies. I drive "highway" often, but the only time I saw 27 mpg was on a road trip (1400+ miles). I was regretting not getting the VW tdi diesel wagon, but now that VW was exposed for fraud regarding emissions, I am only moderately ok with choosing the subaru.

Pros

  • Interior Space: lots of room for humans and their things.
  • Seat Comfort: I sit long stretches in traffic, and the seat has many ways to adjust / support my back.
  • Cabin Noise: blocks a lot of the exterior highway noise & other car's stereos. pretty quiet when windows are closed.

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: stereo sounds terrible. hands free phone also has awful sound quaility, not for driver, but for those on other end of conversation. people keep asking if I'm outside in the wind, even if windows are closed.
  • Fuel Economy: seriously the worst gas mileage. I get between 18.4 and 20.2 mpg. most of my driving is in the city / traffic. I did go on a road trip (1400+ miles) and got 26-27 mpg highway, but have never seen those numbers at any other time

- dawn benedetto, 2012 Subaru Forester

The is the greatest car I've ever owned.

I'm a older citizen, and the things I think that are great are: the visibility, the driving ease, parking ease. comfort for me and my passenger, plenty of luggage room, high safety rating. I'm 79 and my passenger is 81.

Pros

  • Safety: Its has top safety rating.
  • Seat Comfort: Its very comfortable and my sister can recline & sleep.
  • Ride and Handling: It has full visibility and is very easy for me to drive.
