Read about it yesterday.

 

I personally think, the change will impact mainly Grab and Uber.  They will be excluded in our category of COE in the next bidding

These two companies are the main culprit for our COE increase even with more quota allocated in 2016.

I also read the XV not fantastic in terms of interior comfort and drive.

Btw can the Forester backseat recline?

 

Outlander and outback is just part of my consideration. Depend if we intend to expand the family further.

 

FC is not an issue since i am used to clocking single digit km/L.

 

Will test drive sometime in March.

 

Thanks for your feedback.

If u have budget for FXT definitely go for it instead of XV.

But if budget is in the XV QQ Vezel range, then XV interior comfort is on par with QQ and Vezel.

XV drive is better in terms of dynamics but worse in terms of power.

Kindly keep to the topic before quoting and providing your opinion.

Hi guys, i am currently shortlisting 3-4 cars for my next ride.

Forester 2.0i(can consider XT if not so noisy), xv and outlander. maybe outback too.

 

I am currently driving camry 2.4 and previously an 06 forester.

 

I haven't test drive any of the cars yet, so can i get your opinion, is 2.0i or XT noisy? my previous forester can hear road noise.

 

What freebies did you nego for?

you can pm me on the freebies and your SE if you feel uncomfortable sharing in the forum.

Normally I don't think snarky comments are on the cards, but this new member isn't exactly trying very hard to get an opinion ..  [:p]

Maybe "he" thinks the female nick will get a better response  [gorgeous]

 

In any case, 'he' is a Subaru supporter, but the various cars are quite different, apart from being Subarus. So the best suggestion I can think of, is to try them and see which fits.

 

And let's forget about giving further suggestions, since 'he' explicitly refuses to consider other models. In any case, IMO, the FXT represents very solid VFM, and apart from being thirsty, it's a car you will drive with little fuss. A Corolla for the outdoorsy person :)

Isn't it using multiple nicks? Mod to regulate.

Bro, don't use abbreviations like VFM or FXT.

 

He/she/Frankie may not understand and then demand you keep to topic. :D

The current fxt is quite refined. Road noise is acceptable depending on what kind of tyres u choose and the road surface. Some road surfaces no matter what kind of tyre also can hear quite a lot of road noise. Compared to 2008 Camry 2.4, I would say the level of refinement for fxt is better as the engine noise is more refined even when pushed hard. I've tried accord, teana and Camry. Teana current gen seems to be more refined compared to fxt. Current gen Camry suspension is firmer and less comfortable compared to old one.

When I plug in my wife's Samsung S7 into the usb cable in the car, the phone screen goes black and says Android Mirrorlink. How do I get out of mirrorlink so that the phone can use google maps? 

 

Anyone else have this problem?

I think FXT is more quiet than the NA.

The FNA / FXT is well regarded around the world, used as a workhorse, and when it's time to sell, there will be many takers.

However if you worry about FC, this won't be the car for you.

Otherwise, it's as reliable as a Corolla, and if you want a bit of offroad action, this car will bring a smile to your face.

But you should know that the most talked about thing in this thread is the FC of either model.

So go in with your eyes open.

Thank you for the feedback and heads up on FC. I drive about 400-500km a month, mostly city driving. Unfortunately, I have not been monitoring FC for my current car. So don't have much to compare with.

Subaru in general have a reputation of being hardy cars and able to last a long time esp. In the US.

There, Subaru is regarded like Toyota as being very reliable and long lasting and have a high resale value.

Here Subaru had a reputation as an ah beng car and not so many normal driver interested until now with the SUV craze. So most people don't have idea of what its reliability is like.

Thanks for the input. Reassuring to know that the car is reliable.

install LG mirrordrive from play store. select mirrorlink from your HU when you connect your Phone and from the HU select LG mirrordrive. You should be able to access your goggle map from there. but the resolution is not great.

Thanks Mrhan

Probably my previous forester tyre create more road noise.

Will have to test drive to know the difference between the difference between the 2 forester.

Thanks for the kind feedback

Thanks bro.

will test drive both models to compare the noise level. Always thought the turbo version will be much nosier. Do not seem to be the case.

 

seems like most of you are driving the turbo version instead of the non turbo.

sorry my wife forgot to log out of her account and i replied thinking it was mine.

 

I believe my question earlier was legit, however I must have misunderstood jg2000 intention on his reply result in my reply.

 

and who is Frankie???

I already stated i replied thinking it was my account. All i want are opinions from Forester owners, and because of their opinion, i am also considering the XT version.

 

 

And to you the cars might be different.

 

However to me, when i initially shortlisted it,

ASX and forester N.A are both 2.0L, japanese made 5 seater, bhp 150, comfortable wheelbase and falls within 110k range.

Outlander and outback are both 2.4-2.5L, japanese made 7 seater, bhp 160-170 range and falls within my max budget of 130k.

 

I do appreciate and respect the opinions that are provided. I must have misunderstood jg2000 intention on his reply.
