2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
I'm loving my new 2005 Forester X,
Subarujust purchased a week ago. As a
college student I drive to and from
Troy, New York with a diversion to
Burlington, Vermont several times a
My vehicle has to have the reliability,
fuel economy and durability to
accomplish what I need. That is why I
chose the Subaru Forester to
accomplish that goal.
This vehicle has a tremendous
reputation and a terrific resale value
that goes beyond American made cars. I
was convinced as I began looking
around at the price of the Subaru. The
used cars were right up there in value.
The more I looked at the Subaruthe
more I desired it. Now, I'm driving one
and I'm sure glad I am.
Test drive one today
In my opinion, I love the comfort of
the Forester and the steering wheel
feels like a sports car. It has a
thickness and size that's fits
The size of the rear storage area is
also roomy enough for me to haul my
belongings to and from college. The
rear seats also fold down.
If I were to choose a suggested
improvement I would say that for one,
the cup holders in the back seating
area could stand to be more sturdy.
Another improvement would be the
Forester X model has one CD at a
time feature where the Impreza had a
six CD feature. Good when traveling
