Oz Subaru experience

Vehicle
2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Premium Package 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The Forester is great, traveling nicely on a recent trip to Cairns [about 3000 miles]. Gear shift is easy to use, the 2.5 petrol engine has plenty of grunt and the reinforced suspension is much stiffer than the old version. I like the versatility, storing lots of stuff in the back, carrying canoes on the top, driving long distances listening to CDs or the stereo etc. It is nearly as good as my wife's Outback, so that is saying something!
Favorite Features
Comfortable driving position, easy gear change, willing motor, fuel economy.
Suggested Improvements
Undo automatic dimming of dash when the lights are on; you can't see the dials, which is counter to the safety reasons for driving with lights on in the first place.
