Why the 2011 Subaru Forester?

Why Not the 2011 Subaru Forester?

Fuel economy

Mileage is sub par. This Forester replaced a 2007 Ford Fusion all wheel drive. Same driving style, same route, same traffic- 2 mpg less than the V6 Fusion.

Reliability & durability

Not impressed thus far. Has consumed far too much oil for a new vehicle. Dealership inspected for leaks; they did not find any. They stated the oil consumption (about three quarts every 4000 miles) is typical. Subaru Of America was no help.


Cheap thin plastic interior very noisy in the cold, but bearable. Engine very chatters at first start up for a few minutes in the cold.
