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

Review

We have only had the Forester for one month, but it has met all of initial expectations. Getting 27 - 28 mpg with mixed city and highway driving, with AC blowing in Texas heat, & driving the speed limit. Thought that I would own a RAV4 forever, but once they enlarged the size, I went looking elsewhere for the best combination of a 4 cylinder car, safety, & fuel economy. Ended up trading a Tacoma for it, and have not missed the truck as the roof rack & interior can handle what we used the truck for. Also purchased a Honda Fit at the same time to use as in-town car for better mpg, and are very pleased with this combination. But on highways/in rain, we definitely prefer the Forester!

Favorite Features

Safety rating, excellent visibility, fuel economy.

Suggested Improvements

Wish that side curtain airbags were standard. Fair bit of road noise, but that is a minor complaint.
