2015 Subaru Forrester RPM's


Asked by Jul 13, 2018 at 01:26 PM about the 2015 Subaru Forester

Question type: General

I was test driving a nice Subaru Forester with 57,020 miles on it.  I took it up on
the interstate and noticed that it was running at about 4,000 rpm's while cruising
at about 70 mph.  Never driven a Subaru before and its been a long time since I
drove a 4 cyl car but that seemed a little high for 70 mph?

That is no normal. The engine speed should be around 2,000 rpm at 70mph with the CVT on flat ground. Don't buy it!


That is what I figured. Much Thanks!
