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

Review

My Subaru's main problem is its HESITATION on take off. It has about a 2 second hesitation when pulling out after pressing the gas pedal. Dangerous to plan your entrance into heavy traffic. Seems a bit life threatening. Also, the roof rack whistles pretty loud. I also get a burnt oil smell as it warms up. Lastly it gets door dings very easily. I've had a new car every year for the last 9 years. This one is the worst. The dealer told me the hesitation problem is being worked on by Subaru and I'd be notified; that was 8 months ago.

Best Features

The 4WD is awesome! It has pretty good power, and is set up nice inside.

Worst Features

Fix the hesitation before it kills someone. MPG is horrible, avg 22 mpg. Also others tell me that is their average. Better quality side panels and guards against door dings. Fix the roof rack whistling noise.
