2004 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Excellent car. The build feels solid, I have owned this car for about 2 years now with no problems at all. The all wheel drive combined with the 210 hp turbo engine is great in the hills. This car is awesome in the snow, never any problems at all navigating in snow. It also grips well in dry and wet weather, I feel very safe in this car. Excellent ground clearance, never any issues on mtn roads. The interior seems solid, no creaks or rattles or anything falling apart. I think for the money you can't get a better car.
AWD. Turbo engine. Ground clearance. Solid feel. Very reliable.
