    Funny, I see it in a different light.

    My older brother owns a Ford and I own a BMW (For now..) and all I hear from him is "My Ford will smoke you"

    Maybe it's just the people you guys talk to or something..

    You might have missed the alternate version of this Forester ad that ran in selected markets.

    Personally, I like this one even better...



    "The way a press launch for a new car works is, a car manufacturer flies a group of automotive journalists to a nice location, pays their expenses, wines and dines them for several days, and lets them drive the new car all over the place. Then they go home and write objective stories."

    Quite frankly I LOOOOVVEEDDD the Forester ad simply because it was just sooo damn abrasive and competitive, and it really emphasises the Subaru ideal of "we do things differently." I really dont care whether its true or not cause a Forester XT can at the very least hang with a 350 even if it cant beat it, and can do a WHOLE buncha stuff a 350 cant even dream of. Lets face it, car companies lie. At least our company's lies are entertaining.

    I doubt that but thats beside the point. It's a funny add regardless. It is a rather bold claim and people will read the add and get excited abou the car, end up buying on and think they can beat a 350Z while they go pic up their grocerys and kids from soccer practice. It gets attention even if its not true.

    Thats very true, but if they had said the Forester has a greater cargo and towing capacity than the 350z it would have been a rather boring unnoticeable ad.

    subaru didn't win international engine of the year either. the new m5 engine did. It only won the engine of the year for its class.

    stock forester xt driven right can get into high 13's and i know so can a z so it wouldn't be a bad drag race. (weird). Of course the extra 1k in weight and still beating a 350z is a lie.

    I never liked those Subaru ads either.

    I don't see why automotive companies need to do this. Just make your product, and if you make it well, it will sell... End of story. No need to challenge other companies with ridiculous claims... Just let things be and let the quality of the product speak for itself.

    I would LOVE to see an FXT w/ 5 people + a dog beat a 350Z

    Thats the thing though ads like this create the most interest. Subaru could say the Forester comes with jet engines and rocket launchers and will beat an Enzo. Thats certainly not true but people will notice the ad and will remeber it longer than the toyota ad which talks about fuel economy the whole time.

    I dont deny its effectiveness with marketing... I just think it gives away a little bit of the company dignity when it does stuff like this. But then again, money talks
