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

Review

Lots of head room, fairly fun to drive, but has a loud clunking sound coming out of the transmission when you take off. Also has some bad rattling sounds already coming from the hatchback. Stuff that shouldn't be happening with 12,000 miles on it. This is the second Subaru i have had with drivetrain problems. They are very expensive to fix! I won't be buying another one and will be trading this one off before the warranty runs out. It sure goes through the gas with city driving. I will try a Toyota next, or maybe a Honda.

Favorite Features

The headroom, interior design, looks and fairly fun to drive. The use of space is ok and having a full size spare tire.

Suggested Improvements

The drivetrain and the noisy hatchback. Fuel economy could be better.
