Alex C purchased this Subaru Forester used for $28,960 (including all on-road costs) in 2020. Alex C wouldn’t buy this car again because: “The eyesight! I don’t deny the safety stuff is good, but I’m driving. If I judge I can pull out into traffic, I will. I don’t need the car braking. I don’t need it trying to keep me in my lane whilst I’m overtaking because I need to be aware of surrounding traffic. I am. “
It’s been a reliable car. No issues. It just does what I ask it to. It’s got great vision. There’s nothing that really stands out good or bad. It takes me to work, which sucks. It takes me away and for drives on the weekend, much better.
Hmmmmm. Well. I won’t buy it again. I get that all cars have safety equipment, I think the Eyesight is way too intrusive. Servicing is ok-ish. Dealership, what more can I say? It’s a nice car, and nice is boring.
Yep, considering I got it as a returned rental thanks to COVID. I had to get rid of my other car which was going to need substantial dollars spent and this came up. Low kilometres, under cost price. Worth more now than I paid for it.
Economy? Hang on, just picking myself up off the floor from laughing. Look, it’s been great on the open road on road trips. Around town, well let’s be honest, it’s a 1.6 tonne hunk of metal. I call him Chunkybum.
How many times can I say I hate Eyesight in 40 words? I hate it. I love CarPlay. I really like blind spot monitoring, not for me, I use my neck, and eyes, but I know when I’m in someone’s blind spot.
Not bad. The backseat passengers whinge, but they didn’t buy it, and I didn’t buy it for them. Apparently the backseat isn’t comfy. Not sure if they want a lazy boy recliner or something. Maybe if they give me money ….
