Let's be honest, 90% of people will use the storage space to the left of the steering wheel for their phone.

So when the stupid sensor that monitor's the lead vehicle's movement notices the car in front of you moved forward slightly and you have your nose stuck in your phone and your car beeps at you letting you know the car in front of you moved, and you react by hitting the accelerator not looking up from your damn phone and run into the car in front of you that is still stopped how stupid are you going to look then. Sounds like a huge amount of stupid features that do not belong in a vehicle....rather how about a standardized safety feature that disables all phone reception while the vehicle is in gear...now that sounds like a far better safety feature than a sensor that beeps to let you know the vehicle in front of you has moved which you should be paying attention in the first place and see that the vehicle in front of you is now moving so you can prepare to move as well.

I am so disappointed in car makers these days. Even more disappointed in drivers who buy their cars. If you're an alert driver, you DO NOT NEED any of these special "safety" features. Drove my sister's Traverse once, it kept beeping at me trying to tell me how to drive. It was more distracting than "safe". It's coming to the point where I no longer want to buy any vehicle made after 2010. The more I learn about modern cars, the more motivated I am to keep working on my 1971 Dodge Dart.

I thought the B9 was stunning post-face lift. I really liked the interior on it and the curvy sides. Modern Subaru's have no soul or character to them. it's a shame they're essentially just a cheaper Toyota now, which is the most soulless you can get.

Subaru has had the “Approach Lights” in the side mirrors for years. They light up the door handle when you approach the car and it senses your key fob nearby or you click the unlock button on the fob.

In m'y view, the SUV segment begun in the USA in the 70's with the Ford Bronco, then really started to heat in early 80's with the Isuzu Trooper or the customization of pick-up's (Toyota, Nissan, or other Mazda...), and expanded in the 90's with the TOYOTA 4Runner or RAV4, NISSAN Pathfinder, FORD Explorer, SUZUKI Sidekick or Vitara, or other Range River's or Mercedes' before the actual BOOM!

The likely reason for the 3 cup holders in the third row is simply because there is 3 seats in the third row.

We would say that a full size suv, its a toyota, toyota own then are they are just reskinning there products. We would not say the door bins are cup holders. Why do you need a note book you get an owners manual or are americans to lazy and thick to read this. Most european cars are fitted with these we call the kiddy monitors Texting in a car with engine on a gears selected is illegal a d you will get fines and points on licence.

Bought a 2014 Forrester for daughter and it has been good. I walked right past a nw Accent on our street and I thought to myself, "ahh a new Forrester," then looked closer and it was an Accent. It It adds about 10 sq ft to the Forrester, just enough room for a near useless 3rd row seat and is $$$ over a Forrester. While I am a fan of Subaru, I think they missed a chance here. Should have made it significantly larger than a Forrester for about $5-7500 less than what it currently sells. I am in the market for that very vehicle and am not looking at Subaru despite my positive experience with that Forrester. Looking at Traverse and Tahoe (and I am a Ford guy) and Honda Pilot (used before the sloping design).

I'm with Mod Mini on this one...4 cyl. boxer w/ turbo, CVT, and AWD is not something I would trust for the long term.  Subaru has had head gasket issues, the CVT is not something capable of handling high torque/pulling power in my opinion, and I believe their AWD systems are harder on treadwear.  Perhaps, as a family vehicle driven mildly (no towing boats or campers), it will prove out.  What's their warranty, that's a key issue.

I literally hate the CVT transmission. I was driving my mother-in-law’s Subaru Outback that also had the CVT transmission and every time I was trying to pass somebody it was just whine and whine. Horrible transmission and I would never buy a car with a CVT transmission. Back in the mid-89’s I used to rebuild automatic transmissions and I truly appreciate a good transmission that has good firm shifts. Something the CVT can’t do.

Sorry about that I hit send before I done. After watching your video I realized thatshe had made a good choice. It's it's for a family of four. You had me laughing, with your comment about how the 3rd row seating was comfortable. It reminded me of the time I took a road trip in a Thunderbird from NJ to FL and I got stuck having to sit in the rear backseat that was about an inch thick resting on the frame. To this day I still have a flat ass, hahaha. Thanks again I believe you covered everything I wanted to know about that SUV.
