Offering one of the most comfortable rides in its segment, the 2013 Subaru Forester also includes some great steering, able to maneuver well in tight spaces with its relatively low turning circle for a vehicle of its size. There is a bit of road noise when approaching highway speeds though it is not any worse than its major rivals. One thing which detracts from the Forester’s overall performance is its outdated four-speed, automatic transmission, something which also makes its fuel economy suffer a bit. The trims feature a -liter, four-cylinder engine that makes 170 horsepower and 174 lb-ft of torque. The and Premium feature a five-speed, manual transmission and a four-speed automatic is optional on these and standard on the other available trim levels. Zero to 60 miles per hour with this engine is accomplished in seconds, making it one of the slowest vehicles in this segment. Estimated fuel economy stands at 21/27 mpg city/highway and 23 mpg combined no matter which transmission is equipped. The trims receive a turbocharged version of this engine that produces 224 horsepower and 226 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 60 miles per hour is accomplished in a far better seconds, which ranks it well above-average compared to other crossovers. Estimated fuel economy comes in at 19/24 mpg city/highway and 21 mpg combined.
Is there anything to worry about?
Yes there is. In fact, if you abuse the use of fat burners then there is certainly a lot to be worried about. You would be preparing yourself for side-effects which could be short-term, long-term, reversible or irreversible. Sounds horrifying? It is intended to be so because unless you use these things under proper guidance of an expert or medical practitioner, you are making a good case of what not to do. There have been cases in the past when people go to extremes in their desperation and suffer from side-effects. It is generally not the product that has to be blamed but the greed of the user for overnight success.
This is the fifth generation of super-exclusive top-shelf M3s that the M Division has cranked out. And yes, now it’s an M4 instead of M3. We’re over it. They are, in chronological order, the E30 Sport Evo, the E36 GT, the E46 CSL, the E90 (E92) GTS. Sadly, we American types never got our hands on any of them. Instead of focusing on past poor decisions, let’s instead slap BMW and the M Division on the back for giving the . not only the F82 M4 GTS but also the largest share (300 units) of the total production (700 worldwide). Also, Canada gets 50 of ’em, so North America gets half. Go New World, go! Here’s the rub—aside from the nosebleed price tag—all 300 units earmarked for the . have already been sold. My advice to BMW? Build more. Thing is, they won’t. My advice to you? Keep an eye (and a big checkbook) out for a slightly used M4 GTS in the near future, as some are sure to show up. As for how to afford one, well, try marketing some BMW-branded distilled water.
