Purchased As New
I am a subaru impreza driver and I love the car. My wife leased a forester because she use to own an impreza and liked it but wanted more ground clearance. Being a subaru guy I thought this would be a good choice.
First of all the road noise in this thing is terrible. I can't hear the radio unless I turn it way up to drown out the road noise and my wife doesn't like that. I can hear every bump and noise outside of the car. I will proabbly do a decible test in this car and make sure the next car we buy is not loud like this. There has to be a app for that right?
In addition to the road noise it seams like the suspension is very harsh. Our forester rides like an old pickup truck. I feel like I have been beat up after traveling around town. That mathced with the road noise can really wear you out. Also the suspension seams really rolley polley. Feels like it could loose grip and flip an any moment. A far cry from my impreza which is glued to the road.
Ours doesn't seem to shif all that well either. When you slow down to make a turn and then press the accelerator the car revs like it's not in gear and then sudenlly goes into gear. Not cool. THis also can happen when letting off the gas coasting and then pressing on the gas.
It does get around great in the snow. No problems there. Also we think that the back seat is a very reasonable size for a small suv. Especially compared to the impreza (not saying much). A car seat fist well in the back seat unlike our impreza. The cargo space and fold down seats has been very handy.
Bottom line I will be happy to get rid of this car. I really don't enjoy driving it. Maybe the newst forester will be better. I think we will try an outback next. I really like the subaru all wheel drive and I love my impreza that's why I would still stick with the brand.
