It is easy to drive, great window viewing, and wonderful for groceries in the back, etc. It is perfect for taking to the beach. It is a very solid and well build vehicle which makes it exceptionally safe to drive. I will always have a Subaru Forester in my life!
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.
Decent Car At Decent Price
2014 Subaru ForesterStella Swartz - Colorado Springs, CO11/27/2017
This car burns oil. I have had to replace about 1 quart of oil every 1-2 months since purchasing. After some digging, it turns out this year/make/model is notorious for this issue, yet there are not any recalls in place to fix the issue. I would recommend going with another year of this model to avoid the same issue.
This vehicle also does not get the fuel mileage that is stated in the vehicle details. I drive all highway miles and average 27 miles per gallon, not the stated 32.
