ReviewOur 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.
Best FeaturesHeated wipers & mirrors, versatility of the Heating & A/C system, visibility front & rear.
Worst FeaturesToo 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.
