This little SUV with the Turbo will move when I need it to. It's so handy to haul items, easy to fold seats down, easy to remove the headrests. I love the auto climate control, great stereo. I have great control of car in adverse weather conditions - I feel SAFE driving this car. Doors feel solid when you shut them.

A great car to drive! Instant power
for passing, and a AWD system that
keeps you glued to the road in all
weather conditions. This is the most
enjoyable car i have ever owned. The
XT has plenty of room, plenty of
creature comforts, including an
awesome stereo! I drive 80 miles
roundtrip daily to work on a two lane
country road, and needed a car that
could safely get around logging
trucks, etc and handle the snow and
ice we get during the winter. After
18,000 miles, i think i picked the
perfect car for living in northern

BEFORE YOU BUY THIS CAR, CHECK THE
LUMBAR SUPPORT IN THE DRIVERS SEAT.
YOU CAN ZIP OPEN THE BACK OF THE
DRIVERS SEAT. THE LUMBAR IS A STEEL
ROD WITH A PEICE OF PLASTIC ON IT. IT
WILL CAUSE YOU MAJOR BACK PAIN AFTER
ABOUT 1500 MILES. YOUR SPINE WILL REST
ON THIS BAR AND YOU WILL BE SORRY YOU

I just bought my Turbo Forester XT and
I am in love with it! I looked at an
XS, but as fate would have it, the
dealer had a XT. I gave it a shot and
was in love from the moment I put my
foot on the accelerator. I love the
extra ooomph it has and it comes in
handy driving on the DC Beltway. It is
just the right size for me and has
everything I was looking for in a small
SUV. The multitude of standard features
was another plus and it felt good not
having to load up the vehicle with
extras that should come with a car/SUV.
I look forward to snow!

Don't let its looks deceive you - this
car has incredible acceleration and top
end. AWD is awesome-I've owned Subarus
before but this one takes the prize.
Decided on turbo after friend who has
WRX told me that he has 100k on his
with no problems. If you need some
horses, no other SUV except the Porsche
($60K) comes close! Great price for
what you get!
