Just to point out that the FXT is currently going at $125,800 - it is not the segment bargain that it used to be. With COE hovering at the $46-47k level since March, their prices have increased by a whopping $7000!

Good. Higher price, less people buy. Less on the road.

Thank you for the explanation.  Now got better understanding of the power performance of the Forester.

 

After test drive quite a few cars, still don't know which is the best.

Each one got their own merit.

 

Qashqai (2.0 L),  Tucson , Forester etc. 

Main thing about the forester is the torque and hp, and the panaromic all round view. Interior is not so nice as the other 2.

 

Hi, and, yes, thanks for the advice. 

 

Better take advice from actual owners here.

 

I think the forester is a smart-looking car, and very much a no-nonsense car like the landrover. The turbo version of the forester and its 4wd offroad/onroad performance will blow the qashqai 2.0 and tucson away by a far margin.

Seems like the same type that is sourced outside of MI. Could be all from the same source.

Hi guys,

 

Dunno if any of you have this issue with the phone contacts in your forester?  I collected my car yesterday, transferred all the phone contacts via Bluetooth. On my Iphone, the contacts are stored with country code because I travel overseas very often. So for example, my wife’s contact will have +65 XXX XXXX. When she calls me, whether I'm in Singapore or overseas, my phone will recognize accordingly with the correct caller id. 

 

I can see that the phone number transferred across to the Forester as +65 XXX XXXX. But when she calls me, on the forester, it shows up as unknown caller. In the call history, I see that the +65 is not there, only the XXX XXXX. Anyone encounter this before?

I went for 1k free servicing recently.   The service advisor recommended to spray two layers of rubberised coating to protect the undercarriage against corrosion and abrasion etc & it can also improve the soundproofing. It cost around $800 for the two layers of rubberised coating.

 

I didn't go ahead with the rubberised coating yet as I'm not sure how effective is the coating.   Any bros here who have applied the coating can advise?  Thanks.

Hahahaha.. Same sales pitch.. I did that on my old ride when it was 5 years old.

As for sound insulation cheaper to get a pair of ear plugs when driving..

 

For the corrosion, they recommend that it is good to do when car reach 30k km.

 

 

So you decide...
