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!!!!
Fast, handles great, tons of room, comfy seats, interior design and quality gives it a very upscale/luxury feel, Bose Surround Sound Audio sounds amazing. Fuel economy is average at best, gated shifter is annoying, rearview camera isn't very useful for backing up. Overall- it's an amazing vehicle and an exceptional value!
Performance: quick/fast pick up. Handles like a sports car, responsive steering, tight turning radius..no 'top heavy' feeling of a sense of an eminent roll-over...as felt in many/most SUV's. Very quiet, NO road noise, comfortable seating...makes for easy enjoyable drive. My previous car-a Lincoln 5.0L v8, 17mpg town, 25 hwy. This Aviator has same 'improved' engine. Only Disappointment: even using Lucas Oil, premium+octane booster. STILL: 11.4 mpg..town, hwy, uphill, or downhill consistently!
Despite Consumer Reports generally negative rating, my XC-90 has earned its license plate (XTC90). Since picking it up at the factory in May 2004, we've driven it in all conditions without major problems. Aside from a recalled leaking fuelpump, the only issues have been unexpected dumbshit poor-design ones i.e., gearshift lever jammed in park, sunroof drains plugged up and overflowed inside the cabin and alarm system malfunctioned in the middle of the night. At 90k miles, looking for 3million
just under 30K miles, loaded..
too many recalls /screwed up electrical/u-connect/transmission problems look at jeep forums/sites see how many people are sorry they bought these 07/13 to 08/28/13out of this batch made 92,000 recalled might be the biggest Lemon ever and the worst according to reviews the dealers/manufacture are not resolving the problems
