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

Review

I went from a Toyota 4 runner to Subaru LL Bean. I am highly disappointed. The leather seats are very cold in the winter until they warm up. Because of the heater design, my legs are too hot in summer and too cold in winter. The air just doesn't circulate down there. It comes out at chest level only. Passengers in the back seat freeze. The exterior paint job is very bad. It scratches incredibly easy. The windshield takes forever to thaw. It handles well in small amounts of snow but not in anything over 6 inches.

Favorite Features

I love the heated side mirrors and how it handles in the snow and ice.

Suggested Improvements

Might need to re think the heater so it spits out more heat and air conditioning on the feet.
