05 Forester 2.5 XS - great in snow if...

Vehicle
2005 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Our 2005 Forester replaced my old 1991 4WD Mazda MPV. My first winter with the car was a big disappointment as the car didn't handle well in the snow. Hang those wretched Yokohama tires! I replaced them with a set of Michelin HydroRangers, and this car's winter performance is greatly improved! The car has great visibility and entry/exit access for the front seat. Newer models have different option schemes, so I'm a bit in a quandary on selecting a Forester for my wife. I like the power, heated cloth seats. It doesn't look like that's possible on the newer models.
Favorite Features
Heated wipers & mirrors, versatility of the Heating & A/C system, visibility front & rear.
Suggested Improvements
Too bad the 6-disc CD/radio unit does not have an input jack for an Ipod. Considering the year the car was made, there wasn't the big craze for the Ipods either.
