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

Review

I've had it a year now and gone 24K miles with about 7k of those on camping trips with a small pop up camper running around 1800 lbs loaded. I have a manual transmission. I have been in mountains plains and it drives like a dream, 22 mpg pulling as fast as 75 mph across Nebraska (29 to 31 mpg w/o trailer). I am on my third Subaru and the Forester is the best so far and that's saying something. Best small tow vehicle in U.S.

Favorite Features

Quickness, safety features, mileage, back room for hauling and the dog loves the view ... he can see out unlike most others where the deck is low.

Suggested Improvements

Low range transmission, like Australia, load leveling shocks on all of 'em, like Australia, and not just the LL Bean version.
