Second Choice But O.K.

Vehicle
2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Started out to buy a CRV but they were sold out. The Forester was on sale with a couple thousand off the MSRP and it certainly had a good reputation. It replaced a 1991 Sidekick. The Forester is more comfortable and handles better than the Suzuki. With one month of winter driving I am not sold on the AWD system on the Forester, seems pretty easy to get this car going sideways on slippery roads. The Forester is an O.K. vehicle but I find it hard to really be enthusiastic about it.
Favorite Features
Seats are great, super visibility and good heater. Quality seems good, have had no complaints in first five months of ownership.
Suggested Improvements
Lots of buzzy road noise from rear. No window frames is odd. Transmission hunts going up hills. Couple of hard starts on cool days. Could use a little more power.
