Finding Forester
By ksub on
2005 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
In looking for a smaller SUV for my wife, the search really came down to a CR-V or Forester. The key decision points were full-time AWD, top safety scores, and price. Little things like heated seats, 6-disc CD, and auto climate were nice too. Also, and more subjective, this vehicle handles much more carlike - very nimble with good visibility. This vehicle also creates confidence with it's great traction - on road or off. I really think this is a well-engineered and well-built vehicle.
Favorite Features
Floodlights for headlights - great illumination! 6-disc CD with weatherband, heated seats, auto climate control, compact dimensions yet good use of interior space to maximize cargo room. Great build quality. Relatively good fuel economy. Good safety and confidence-inspiring handling.
Suggested Improvements
Seats are not comfortable on longer trips - a little disappointing. Back seat room a bit more cramped than necessary. Needs tinted/darker tinted windows. Slightly larger storage bins in armrest and larger cupholders. A more refined/smoother engine.
