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

Review

I bought the car new and liked it with respect to driving and its AWD feature. What owners should be aware of is that this is a high maintenance vehicle. Parts like the wheel bearing fail prematurely (<60,000 miles) and can go on undetected for months and years and mistaken as just tire noise. Repair cost is >$450 per wheel.

Best Features

Real AWD not reactive ones.

Worst Features

Longer lasting components, e.g. bearings, CV joints, less piston slap on cold weather, pinging under load.
