2004 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

My wife and I had been driving a 2000 Legacy GT until the machine I had been so anxiously waiting for finally arrived. Having had two previous turbocharged cars (Mazda 626 touring sedans), I was anxious to regain that extra kick in engine power and the extra space flexibility that the the hatchbacks provided. Well, now with the Forester XT, all that is back and much more. Not only is it rated as one the safest vehicules on the road, it has AWD, better handling, better performance, better sound system, bigger moonroof, more space, more features...and it looks great! It's a sports car, it's a SUV, it's a utility sports car, it's a dream machine!

Best Features

Too many to list, but the smoothness of the engine that can purr like a kitten and growl like a tiger and the handling with the AWD make the driving so pleasurable.

Worst Features

Power seat for driver and lighted vanity mirrors just like in the Legacys.
