2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I shopped for months comparing the CR-V, RAV4, Murano, FX35, Pilot, MDX, Tucson, etc. and kept returning to the Forester. Having put 1,400 miles driving it in 6 days, I feel great about my decision. The turbo gives me the acceleration of a sportscar, while the raised stance and AWD allow for off-road ventures, and the sunroof almost make it seem like a convertible. Gas mileage is exactly what the EPA says; 26 highway, 21 city, average 23 mpg on premium. Some road noise but engine is quiet. I could not be happier with the car or my purchase experience!

Best Features

Acceleration, suspension, clear lines of sight.

Worst Features

Better subwoofer, allow front passenger seat to fold like Tucson does.
