I am very happy with the 06 Forester X, 5 speed. It has great acceleration, handling and fuel economy. The visibility is great and it is easy to park. Adjustments for the seat height and steering wheel are great to accommodate smaller drivers. Plenty of room in the trunk for our large dog and the rubber cargo mat is highly recommended. Incredible amount of standard equipment and very good pricing. Nicely improved from '05.
All wheel drive, fuel economy, visibility, handling.
Continue to improve the arm rest, integrating the arm rests into the driver's and passenger's seats would increase overall comfort.
