Another great Subaru in my life.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I am a loyal Subaru owner, this is my third Subaru. I like the cargo space, the quality of the build, and so on. With this particular car, there was a defect in the engine that led it to burn oil, and it was a great struggle to finally get Subaru to agree to replace part of the engine. The problem is now resolved. I hope that I will always be able to get a manual transmission but wish I did not have to give up my sunroof to get it. In general my Subarus have been exceptionally reliable.

Cool sunroof and decent family starter car

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

A reliable vehicle, decent gas mileage and storage space. It does have some road noise from the tires. It's a good starter vehicle but not great for a larger family. It has a decent amount of technology such as built in GPS, nice sound system with upgraded speakers. I have had issues with wearing on the seats. Which isn't covered by warranty apparently. My favorite feature is probably the large sunroof. It's about half the roof and is a nice feature.

Subaru Forester roomy & comfy!

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I love my car, it's so roomy! Very comfortable seats, I feel like I'm higher up than my old forester and it feels like I'm in more control. The one issue is I wish I could see better out the rear window it does feel like there's a greater blind spot than my old car. It drives so smooth and quiet! Air conditioner is amazing and heat too! I do wish this version had heated seats.

Very pleased with my new Subaru Forester.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I bought my Subaru because I was looking for a vehicle that got decent gas mileage but would also drive well in the snow and bad weather. I love it! I haven't had any issues with it since I bought it. I runs well, and handles excellently in inclement weather. It is very spacious inside and would work well as a small family car also. Definitely would purchase again.

has turbo engine. Love the pick up and go

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I bought a 1 yr old car & six days after being bought the whole dashboard lite up with all colored lights. Took it back to dealership. They kept it 6 weeks and had to reset the whole engine. The registration now is labeled Lemon Law. Hope I don't have trouble re-selling the car someday. It has worked perfectly since the factory reset.

Review of 2014 Subaru Forester

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I love my forester! I love the HUGE sunroof, heated seated, and interior fabric. The driver's seat includes a lumbar support as well as the typical adjustments which makes driving far distances extremely comfortable. The trunk is very spacious and with the option to lower two of the rear seats you can fit almost anything in the car.

Safety conscience is the key.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

Has normal age problems, new tires, new brakes-nothing really major has happened to the car and the car does have over 100,000 miles on it. The dealer told us that they see 100,000 miles all the time of the time. We bought it because of the safety ratings it has and has consistently had on all years since we bought this one.

- Fora G

my Subaru is the best vehicle I have ever owned

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I have had no problems with my Subaru, it's been such reliable vehicle, being a senior citizen and living in the country I need a vehicle that when I want or need to get somewhere it will get me there, and my Subaru has been that vehicle. The gas mileage has been quite good also..

Information on inside the Subaru Forester

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

Very spacious has lots of leg room. It is not a gas guzzler. Drives nicely easy handling. Lots of room in the back especially when you fold the seats down. Child seat hooks easily into back seat. When the seats are up it is very easy to put a large folding stroller in the back.

- Susan S

Great visibility - there are plenty of windows and I can see around the vehicle

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I love the visibility that the forester has - I am tall and can see clearly through all the windows. It handles well in the mountains. Also, I love sharp turning radius for U-turns. The Bluetooth is tricky to set up and not always reliable but when it works it is handy.

- Loren H

Subaru hands down one amazing vehicle

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

This is absolutely smooth. The only issue is it shifts at a higher rpm than I'm used to. It has so much room for kids and pets as well. I'm used to my pickups ride and I'm 100% in love with my Subaru. The gas mileage has been huge bonus. I usually get around 30 mpg.

- Shelby T

Lots of space, terrible sound

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

Comfortable, it fits my husband who is 6'7'. It has a terrible sound system, it's hard to hear. I think it's an ugly car, I prefer the Honda CR-V. The trunk is huge. Gets good gas mileage. Has rear view camera for backing up. Moonroof. Easy to fit car seat

- Amy C

Feel Like a Queen as You Sit High in your Forrester.

2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i

I think the Forrester is a safe and reliable vehicle. It has large windows and is high up off the road which provides a safe feeling when driving in traffic. It is also good in the snow. Have not had any major problems with the car since I have owned it.
