| ||Model||Subaru Forester |
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||A little small in the footwell for big feet, no CD player|
| ||General comments?||I have had a Forester GT (MY) turbo for the past 2.5 years and have nothing but praise for it. It has great performance from the turbo engine, great fuel economy on the highway and has heated leather seats for thse cold nights and the largest sunroof on any car I have seen. I have had fullsize 4WD vehicles but this is the best all round vehicle I have owned. I can drive it the same way in wet or dry conditions. The tyres (Yokohama) are now in need of replacement after 78,000 kms!! I have taken on sand, through mud and down bush trails. I have driven it hard on the bitumen and the gravel and no problems at all. The only criticism of this model is that it didn't have a CD player as standard. I am looking at changing the ECU and exhaust to improve the engine output further from 130KW to 160KW as there are a number of places that specialise in this type of mod here. It doesn't require any "sugery" to the car or wiring so can easily be reversed on sale.|
