    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

    2003 Subaru Outback - Limited (A4) Wagon

    This car has been perfect for my needs. I am able to cram beach gear, camping equipment or even frequent loads from home depot in the large hatch back. The color was cool in 2003, but I am tired of the two tone green paint 8 years later. My super-ru will climb up any hill, trudge through any un-plowed snow covered road, & crawl through mud along side any lifted monster truck. We may make it through tough road conditions, but we are the turtle, not the hare in the race.
