what is practical weight limit on a 2015 subaru forester

Asked by Jul 16, 2015 at 04:18 AM about the 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring

Question type: General

the weight limit on the door says 900 lbs. the car is suposed to carry 5 people that brings
it over the limit with just people at average weight of 180 - no luggage  I read somewhere
the weight limit is really about 1200 lbs That is more reasonable I plan a 600 mile trip with
4 people who average 180 and with luggage hat will weight about 300 lbs. i am trying to
figure out if this is doable. once we get there it will be well under and two people will go
other ways on return, so it just the trip up that concerns me

The weight limit posted on the door is the weight limit of the car.

79,635

If you run over the weight limit, drive slower and perhaps air up your tires to 35 psi.
