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

Review

I have a cabin in the mountains, and I need AWD for the winter. I recently went up for the weekend only to see Cars coming down the mountian with their flashers on (because of snow) however my little subie handled perfectly with out a slip. I thought I would be getting better gas mileage than I am, only getting about 26-28 on the highway (must be my lead foot). There is nothing bad about the car that relatively cheap aftermarket gear can't fix --talking about shifter knobs and tint not expensive body kits.

Best Features

The best AWD on the road, perfection. 2.5 litre 4-cyl! Large four for good power, but low fuel usage. Drive of a car, looks of a SUV or CUV. Hill Holder is nice, esp. off the beaten path.

Worst Features

Twitchy Speedo, Stereo sounds like it is underwater (think aftermarket), Needs new shifter knob. Factory Tint.
