Did you test drive before buying it?

Why did you buy it if it feels gutless/slow?
If you didn't test drive it, you don't deserve a car.

The dealer will be nice and freindly until you buy the car. Now that its paid for/financed and under your name, your gonna make a loss on it if you try swap/trade. But if your already unhappy with it then no point holding onto it.

Give mace performance a call, they should be able to squeeze some power out of it , possible get it using less fuel too.

Fuel is one of the cheapest parts of motoring.

2015 Subaru Forester, XR6 turbo ute.
Seeing as its a near new car, go back to the dealer and see what they can find. Its under warranty, so get some value out of that.

If its got a genuine reason for useing alot of fuel, then take it back and get it looked at.

But the fact that you say its gutless, kinda hints that you've been flogging it alot.

Who doesn't give their new car a good flogging?
