|What do people think|
about Subaru Forester ?
|FUN to drive. Rides and handles like a car. Very spacious cargo area (considering its size). All wheel drive with limited slip rear differential will handle snow,ice and light off roading easily. Powerful (I couldn't believe it's a 4 cylinder). Lots of handy storage compartments. Great gas mileage (We're averaging slightly under 25 MPG)....|

Subaru offers factory upgrades to WRX, STi, Forester
Subaru has a strong rally race heritage, and has been an industry
leader in AWD vehicles for quite some time. The company's flagship
vehicle is the Impreza STi, an impressive beast that is already
incredibly fast and nimble in its stock form, but for those of you
still not satisfied, the company is introducing the new
Prodrive-developed Performance Packs (PPP) for the STi, as well as
for the Impreza WRX and Forester 2.5 XT.
For the WRX, the upgrades set the engine up to 270hp and add 74
lbs-ft of torque to the mix. For the STi, you will be able to rock
it with 316hp, doing the 0-62mph in under 5 seconds. They haven't
released information about how much better off the Forester is.
The upgrades, regardless of which model, will rip ??1,700
(~$3000 USD) from your wallet, but will add a sports exhaust and a
reprogrammed engine management unit to your ride. I know what
you're thinking: Why don't I just get some aftermarket parts for
less and make more power? Well, if you get the PPP from Suby, you
know that you car still complies with emissions law, and maybe more
importantly, will be covered by standard warranty.
