"I have owned this Marine Blue 2013 Subaru Forester 5 speed manual with the Plus Package since Feb of 2013. It isn't driven long distance very often but sure is fun to drive. The car also provides a very useful double duty as our RV tow vehicle and is fantastic to have on camping trips. Subaru's Symmetrical AWD is wonderful in just about any terrain and the ground clearance is also quite useful. The new FB25 Boxer engine has been very reliable and I haven't noticed any of the oil consumption issues that some have described online. The oil has been changed one time at 1000 miles and has stayed right on the full mark for the last 3200 miles. I love the power, sound and torque of the Boxer engine and the 5 speed makes the perfect combo. The interior materials could be a little higher quality as there are some areas that are pretty hard plastic that is easy to scratch and the dash seems pretty "stiff" to me. The heated seat buttons are also in an awkward location and sometimes hard to reach. Other than that, it is a wonderful SUV and if the quality of materials were a little higher, it would be a solid 10 in my book. Other than that, you will love the Forester and certainly cannot go wrong with a car from a company that cares as much as Subaru does. Need to be convinced a bit more? As I type this review, I just picked up my second Forester! I bought a 2015 2.5i Premium with the CVT and I hope it is as good as my 2013. I am excited to have 2 Foresters in the household now and will write a review as I drive it a bit more."

COMFORTABLE SUV WITH GREAT FUEL ECONOMY AND AWD!

"WHETHER GOING THROUGH FLOODED ROADS, A FOOT OF SNOW, MUDDY TRAILS, THIS VEHICLE HAS NEVER LET ME DOWN. THE AWD WITH TRACTION CONTROL WORKS FLAWLESSLY IN MOST CONDITIONS. KEEP IN MIND THIS IS AN EVERYDAY DRIVEN SUV THAT CAN HAUL THE KIDS AND MOST OTHER THINGS BUT IS NOT A PICKUP TRUCK FOR HAULING SHEETROCK OR A LOAD OF 2X4'S OR A LIFTED JEEP WITH A SNORKLE TO BURY IN WATER, MUD, OR ROCK CLIMBING. THE REAR SEATS OFFER AMPLE LEG ROOM AS WELL AS RECLINE CAPABILITY, CENTER ARMREST AND CUPHOLDERS THAT DONT INTERFERE WITH THE USE OF CENTER ARMREST. OWN ONE YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. I'M ON MY 4TH SUBARU."

"Only annoyance is that things slide around in the cargo area, but they probably do in all SUV's."
