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

Review

The Forester is a well rounded small SUV, performing well in all disciplines. This small SUV is more fun to drive than many cars or wagons. It literally sticks to the road like glue. This is my first permanent AWD vehicle and after getting used to the different feel of driving - I really came to like it. It could use some more hp but I guess you'd have to buy the XT for that. The reliability is outstanding. Some of the interior materials and finishing seem a little cheap. The backseat is cramped even with two small children and very small compared e.g. to the Honda CRV. Dealership and service are very good.

Favorite Features

Sticks to the road. Versatile interior. Permanent AWD - Fuel economy.

Suggested Improvements

Radio controls too small. Cruise control has to be turned on each time which is very annoying. Cupholders don't work for coffee or bottles (not deep enough). Needs more horsepower.
