2004 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Leather Package (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)

Review

Gas mileage just plain bad, I got the same mileage, 13 mpg, with a 2006 8 cylinder hemi daytona with 360 hp. This has great hp for a 4 cylinder and is very fun wagon to drive. The leather seating is well done. Tilt wheel would raise the comfort level. Better quality front seat back handle control needed. Near perfect interior-exterior design. Window whistle at 45 mph annoying, need window frames. Sacrificing quality for weight savings don't work for me, the aluminum hood takes a beating on the highway. The expensive to fix cd changer radio is a let down.

Favorite Features

My Favorite Features are the turbo charged engine, the fine leather heated seats, compass/dimming mirror.

Suggested Improvements

17 inch wheels would be nicer look and handle. Fix the cheap CD changer radio problem with an iphone/ipod link to the radio, its a cheap solution. Tilt wheel would raise the comfort level. Homelink would be nice too. not to mention an STI/package option.
