2004 Subaru ForesterStephen K - Dublin, Ohio07/31/2010
There's not much too say about Subaru's. If you have one you know what I mean, if you don't your missing out. This is my second Subaru and it makes me enjoy driving. I don't care what I do in this car it's always a pleasure. Subaru's have a little bit stiffer suspension but it's still very comfortable. The All Wheel Drive is hard to beat. Subaru's design of AWD is continuous. Other car manufacturer's advertise AWD but it is not the same continuous setup. Computer sensors read the information of performance of each tire then adjusts to the situation. Subaru's system is a mechanical system that is continually improving your traction. If this Subaru could float I would drive it around the world and it would work amazingly.
big car, nice but terrible city gas mileage
2012 Subaru Foresterdawn benedetto - mount rainier, MD10/03/2015
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.
One of the most amazing things about the car is the mileage. After every trip, the miles per gallon used is shown. I cannot say how often it is 34.7 or 30 plus miles per gallon. It was not supposed to be this good according to what was reflected on the window. I am very impressed.
It is also one of the smoothest running vehicles I have ever owned.
