The swiss army knife of cars!

Vehicle
2004 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Want a wagon to haul stuff? Want to do some light off-roading? Want to smoke that 350Z sitting at the light next to you? The Forester can do it all! I am on my second Forester and am now a die-hard Subaru fan. My 04 XT is a nicely put together vehicle with nice materials, but most importantly, smoking performance. I smile just thinking about pushing my Foz through the corners and speeding away from lights. I like it, my kids like it, and even the wife likes to take it out for a spin! Reliability, style, utility, performance... you can't go wrong!
Favorite Features
0-60 of 5.3 seconds! It's just crazy fast. Good materials, sound system, INCREDIBLE safety, reliability.
Suggested Improvements
Note that the 04-05 XT 5-speed have a 4.44 final drive ratio so they turn high RPMs at high speed (80mph = 3500RPM). Makes for quick acceleration but not the best gas mileage. But in perspective, it's still much better than most sports cars.
