    2014 Subaru Forester - 2.5i Premium (CVT)

    This car has been a nightmare almost since its purchase date. The problem is all rooted in the new transmission system - the CVT. It constantly feels like it is going to stall or hesitate. This is one of the new features of the completely overhauled 2014 Forester. Subaru has a real problem on its hands with this vehicle. Subaru dealership unable to resolve in spite of five visits to date to repair it. WE ARE TOTALLY DISSATISFIED WITH THIS VEHICLE AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!!!!

    2014 Subaru Forester - 2.5i Premium (CVT)

    Did my research, waited for the '14 model, and bought it a month after its debut. It hasn't disappointed me since. Spacious inside w/ a large entrance fitted well for both my 80+ yrs old parents. With back seats down, can throw 2 bikes inside. Everything work well, supportive power driver seat w/ nice panaromic moonroof. Small display, but get used to it. Glad I waited for '14 vs '13 model. Mileage was surprising good w/ the new CVT trans. Love it!

    2012 Subaru Forester - 2.5X Premium (M5)

    This is our first Subaru and so far we’re quite impressed. We also had the snow and ice to prove we made the correct selection. Prior to purchasing we did our due diligence and compared the Forester to others in this field, Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, Ford, GMC, Chevy etc. Living in the Midwest and traveling to Minnesota for work required a reliable AWD or 4WD vehicle and the AWD Forester has the best AWD system to handle adverse weather. The adjustable seats with lumbar are quite comfortable

    UnSatisfied

    Pros: ground clearance

    Cons: Poor Gas Mileage!!!

    2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca

    Worst Dealership Ever

    Pros: all wheel drive

    Cons: style, lack of ac in back

    Do not like a car that you cannot find parts except for dealership. This includes windshield wipers - wanted to charge me $80 but said they had none. Mechanic I went to got wiper from same dealer. I paid $44.00! This is only 1 of many issues I've had with dealership. Too expensive to maintain.
