8 Yr Review- My lemon is literally falling apart :(
By truth_b_told on
Vehicle
2005 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
It has taken me from point A to B and been reliable in that aspect..but Everything Else about it just sucks. Transmission constantly shifts and is starting to slip, Lack of power going through the Rockies, squeaks and rattles galore, horrible wind noise, will barely start in 20 degree weather, paint is chipping away all over the car, plastic interior is flimsy, speakers suck, and the list goes on. It hasn't been terrible, but it hasn't been good. I want to mention I have always garaged the car, maintained it since day one, here in CO we don't use salt on the roads so why the paint issue? It only has 78,000 miles on it. Check Consumer Reports, I'm just waiting for head gasket to blow
Favorite Features
It's a tank in the snow and lots of cargo space. Seats are comfortable.
Suggested Improvements
Don't build a lemon.
