So I test drove a 2010 Forester yesterday, and liked everything about the car other than its acceleration. When pulling out in traffic and flooring the accelerator to merge, there was a noticeable delay before the engine revved up and the car began to take off. Is this normal for the Forester? I understand it only has an H4 that puts out 170, so it won't pickup at the same rate as my 300m does, but it wasn't so much the rate as it was the 2-3 second delay before anything started happening. I would think this could get dangerous merging on the interstate in relatively high traffic conditions. Is this the effect people are hoping a new CVT may fix? Thanks for any input.
