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

Review

When shopping for a used car, I knew what I wanted. I had to have this car for one reason only. I am only 4'11" and have trouble with visibility when turning to see blindspots and out the back window. This is the ONLY car that I actually feel safe in (and I have test driven MANY!!). It was a toss up between this car and the Mazda3. This one definitely won out for performance and safety features. If you or someone in your life is petite, this is the BEST find for comfortability. My husband who is close to 6 feet tall is just as comfortable driving this car as I am. It's a win-win.

Best Features

LOOVE the wide windows and oversize moonroof for excellent visibility for blindspots - great for night-driving, too!

Worst Features

The 6-CD changer broke immediately after my purchase and it cost an arm and leg to fix. I'll stick with the radio. The dashboard rattles and buzzes which can be very annoying on long trips. Lots of road noise...this is NOT a quiet car.
