| ||Model||Subaru Forester |
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Short service intervals (7,500 miles|
| ||General comments?||Initial impressions having run this car for a short time - amazing! The UK model is "only" equipped with a 2l boxer engine, producing 123bhp (IIRC). For day to day driving this seems to be plenty. There is enough power available to overtake on A roads, without sacrificing fuel economy (at approx $1 per litre that is a bit of an issue over here!)|
Comfort is superb - even with a fairly basic interior. No complaints at all - especially at the price it cost me. Wouldn't mind trying the turbo model though!!!
Seems the other difference between European and US models - mine has a hi and low ratio gearbox. Could be useful if I am out in the mountains in the snow (pretty likely!)
The price above is in pounds stirling.
| ||Previous car||Jeep Cherokee (new model, called Liberty in US) - horrible brake pedal and not cheap. Nice otherwise!
Landrover Defender - not that similar, but probably the best off roader I have ever driven, provi||
