2005 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Great practical vehicle for snowy
regions, comfortable and easy to drive.
Blends into traffic, and surprises
everyone with it's eat my dust
acceleration. Extremely maneuverable
once you get used to the car's power,
and breaking abilities, but start
SLOWLY as the turbo power will really
overwhelm you! Install a remote starter
and your winter mornings will feel very
cozy, with heated, seats, mirrors, and
wipers. I drive alone most of the
time, so removing the passanger, and
rear headrests greatly improved
visibility, which you need in order to
handle the turbo in traffic. GREATEST
ALL AROUND VEHICLE FOR THE PRICE.

Best Features

Turbo power, heated seats, heated mirrors, heated winshield wipers, six cd changer, dashboard storage compartment, overhead storage for sunglasses, short doors that open wide without hitting nearby cars, high seating position for good visibility. High grade materials and build quality

Worst Features

Heated seating area should cover the whole seat, not just the center. Gas filler should be on the driver side. Fill-ups get irritating when you have to figure which car you are driving, in order to avoid "U" turns inside gas stations (for multiple vehicle owners only).
