2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Have had several Subaru's over the years as I live in snowbelt country. Car gets you there with its AWD. Have had very few problems in the past, thus the purchase of a new Forester. I didn't need all the frills so I got the plain X model, but it has all the stuff I need. Great so far.
AWD, great visibility, lots of headroom, good gas mileage.
Could use a little more leg room in the back seat area.
