2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
My pregnant wife and I bought a new Forester 2 months ago. She's been eyeing Foresters for a while, but I always thought they weren't "tough enough" for a big guy like me. She finally talked me into it, and I'm glad she did. We just had our first big snow of the year and the Forester was awesome! We felt safe, comfortable, and confident that the Subaru would get us around safely. So far, I've been impressed by the sportiness, handling, engineering, reliability, and fuel economy. We're getting about 24 mpg. After two months, I'm considering buying my own for my next car too, something I thought I would never say. We feel like we made a very smart decision and we highly recommend it.
Favorite Features
Sportiness, fuel economy for an AWD car, no blind spots; feels like you can see everything around you, driving it makes you feel smart because it's just so darn practical.
Suggested Improvements
I don't like the cloth interior, seems like it could fray or damage easily, though it hasn't yet.
