2007 Subaru Forester Wagon Sports 2.5 XT 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This is the 4th Subaru that I have bought. It is a blast to drive. A true sleeper when challenged. I have left a few cars in the dust thinking they can out run me. I have the WR blue and get a lot of compliments on the looks. I would recommend Subaru to everyone. Spend the extra money and get the turbo. You will be glad you did.


Best Features

Turbo charger, Color, storage compartment on the dash


Worst Features

Allow more interior color choices. I don't like having to choose only black, brown or drab gray. Be able to turn off the daytime headlights.

2007 Subaru Forester Wagon Sports 2.5 XT 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

My wife picked out a silver '07 forester XT Sport with manual transmission. This is an Awesome SUV with an emphasis on Sport. We live in Maine and I work at a ski resort. We put snow tires on the subie and we do much better than many other vehicles. At the same time this car is FAST. The stick doesn't have VDC which is okay because the sound of 4 wheels screeching is a beautiful thing. The dogs love the large cargo area, and the luggage rack easily carries everything else. This car has been from Miami to Maine and has handled everything the way we wanted. If you are looking for a do-it-all funmobile - this is it.


Best Features

Huge sunroof that opens all the way. TURBO!!! Heated seats for Maine winter. Starts at -30F.


Worst Features

Bring back the plastic panels on the bottom of the doors. The salt in New England is brutal. And with any offroading come rocks and roots.

Review

Looking for a small wagon with a ton-of-fun factor, then this is for you! Mine has a short-throw shifter, turbo gauge (visual toy) and heated leather seats (to warm ones hide on those chilly Minnesota Winters mornings). Our car delivered us to Colorado skiing, pheasant hunting in SD and canoeing in the BWCA, while allowing us to enjoy the scenery through the panoramic moon roof. The Forester Sport handles all tasks with ease, and the AWD triumphs over any treacherous weather condition encountered. It readily tows (2.4K lbs) with the trailer pkg, allowing us to haul our gear to the cabin and back with a minimum of fuss/muss. I can't say enough good about this car, it does what I need it to do


Best Features

The cars acceleration and nimble handling are quite phenomenal for a station-wagon/SUV hybrid. The interior is nicely appointed (automatic climate control, killer sound system), and the Sport has many of the luxury accoutrements (auto dimmer/compass mirror, cruise-control, heated-seats, etc.) desired.


Worst Features

Short-falls on the Sport are primarily of personal taste. I hate the fact they don't allow you to purchase a Limited (i.e., with all the bells/whistles) if you want a stick. I also didn't like having to pay for a leather interior, as it isn't an option on the Sport (love it though once installed)

Review

A sports car in disguise, a classic sleeper. Performance is similar to the WRX, and it doubles as a midsized family SUV and ski/soccer/beach hauling vehicle. Mom or Dad can drive their fun car, have decent gas mileage, and cart around all the family stuff in any weather or road conditions. It's a budget, sport, family SUV. So, for all it's plusses expect some cheapness, avg mileage, and the style and fit of a crossover off-road/family wagon. Still, above avg value, fun and practicality for the money, with good safety. Needs padded side columns, side curtain airbags, design that prevents water/snow drips on floor and seats, and a decent paint job to be a true 10.


Best Features

Good: Faasst, fast, fast even in 5th. Comparable to the WRX line for performance. Comfortable. Fast AC/heat, especially seat warmers. Great sound system, handling and visibility. Good driver position. Plenty of room. Pretty quiet. Cargo nets and tray, and deep floor mats invaluable extras.


Worst Features

Bad: Turbo V twitchy - beware! Paint is rubbish - scratches if breathed on, even if heavily waxed. Water/snow on body drip on floor and seat even when doors opened w/care. Hill-holder is hazard, not a help. Gas mileage unattainable even w/careful driving. Side curtain airbags/column padding needed!!
