Expected Better Quality From Subaru
By 1st Subaru for Me on
Vehicle
2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Based on everything I read about this vehicle, I expected a quality, problem- free vehicle. Driving it is enjoyable, but I'm finding out that the quality of some of the parts and pieces is cheap. The seat upholstery is kind of thin. The clear plastic on the engine gauges cover squeaks. A piece of rubber under the hood is loose in one spot, etc. One of my windshield washer sprayers stopped working. I have only about 1050 miles on the car so far. I never expected all these annoying things with a Subaru.
Favorite Features
Car is nimble and peppy. Easy to control. Windows are easy to see out of -- no tiny rear windows like in many other vehicles. Has good crash test results. I really like the hatch opening on the rear door. One full tank of gas will last me close to a whole week!
Suggested Improvements
Improve quality! Brakes feel a little weak. Improve fuel economy; flex fuel engine would be nice. Paint scratches VERY easily. Needs better stereo speakers and aux input for the stereo.
