2004 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I like the performance of the Turbo XT compared to the standard model. It seems so effortless merging into traffic and if you need it, really has the get up an go. The negative is that the mileage is much worse than I expected - about 20 mpg. I also like the heaters in the mirrors, under the wipers, and in the seats. I had to have the discs turned at 33K due to brake pulsating, but that was free under warranty. I also had a fog light burn out which to my surprise was covered under warranty (bulb costs $20.00). All in all, the Forester is a great car and I love it.

Favorite Features

Total functionality. Easy to haul anything because the height is reasonable and the driver seat fits a tall guy.

Suggested Improvements

I often notice I'm in Drive 3 instead of drive. It would be nice if there was a stop to always put you in the proper Drive without looking.
