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

Review

FXT is a great example of a Subaru. It's not perfect but it makes you happy. Don't know what else gives you what the manual/turbo Forester has for a reasonable price. But I like and bought because of ride height, performance, utility, reliability. I prefer this to my 04 wrx and 05 legacy GT. If you are thinking about this car things you get are: great visibility, ride height, 4wd, utility, reliability, performance (as easy or easier than wrx to mod if you want to). Things you'll have to live with: ugly (it is but its ok) gas mileage (good for what it is but not amazing), bit of wind noise. Not perfect but just does everything and makes you happy.

Favorite Features

Does everything, no one knows what it is. Power - 5.x sec to 60, awd, space, simplicity. Huge sunroof, htd seats

Suggested Improvements

add refinement (they did w/ 09+ but need to make it w/ manual)
