Can't get this car any more; too bad
By osvolant on
Vehicle
2008 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I love the turbo engine. Getting 24 mpg routinely in suburban/highway driving. Leather seats in Limited trim very comfortable and main reason I didn't buy the Sport. Noisy at highway speeds. Very practical for light off-roading, trailer towing, hauling bikes, dogs, etc. with enough zip to make it fun (more sports car than SUV feel). Good in snow and mud, even towing trailer. Manual trans not available with turbo in '09- glad I got mine.
Favorite Features
Turbo engine, sporty firm ride, crisp shifting manual trans.
Suggested Improvements
Firmer brake pedal feel, less road noise, 6th gear ratio for lower engine rpms at 70+ mph.
