Fun Crossover SUV

2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The Forester is an awesome crossover SUV. While slightly more expensive than some of its competitors, considering what is included makes it a superior value. This is a truly FUN car / SUV to drive; its peppy engine (largest standard engine in its class) and excellent handling (aided by AWD technology) make it a winner! Lots of room inside, and plenty of storage nooks. A great all-around vehicle - enjoy!

2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have a cabin in the mountains, and I need AWD for the winter. I recently went up for the weekend only to see Cars coming down the mountian with their flashers on (because of snow) however my little subie handled perfectly with out a slip. I thought I would be getting better gas mileage than I am, only getting about 26-28 on the highway (must be my lead foot). There is nothing bad about the car that relatively cheap aftermarket gear can't fix --talking about shifter knobs and tint not expensive body kits.

Best suv for suv haters

Review

The forester has been a great car so far. We have had it for about 2 weeks and it is getting about 29MPG on mixed driving. We needed more room for camping, bikes, dog, and eventually children and had a hard time buying a suv. The only thing that won us over is that it is as close to a car as you can get end gets better milage than most cars do. The car feels solid even when comparing it to the prelude we traded in for it. Still in the break in perid so we haven't run it hard yet. We would recomend the car to anyone.

Sturdy No-Nonsence Quality Vehicle

2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

the Subaru Forester is a quality built and safe all-wheel drive alternative to many SUV's without this level of safety. the Forester has not Roll-over warning like most of the SUV's on the market. That little "roll-over" warning posted on the driver's side sun visor in most SUV's is a Death sentance" in an accident. You don't have to worry about that in the Foester.
