Vehicle

2008 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Premium Package 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

700 miles in. Seats are comfortable on 2hr+ drives. Cargo space is great. MPG is reasonable. Sunroof noise is fine at 65 and only gets annoying at ~80. The visibility is fantastic.

Best Features

Visibility. Sun roof. Dimming mirror (I thought it was silly at first). Hill holder clutch (thought it was silly, but now I don't need to curse at the automatic drivers who love to stop short of the hill crests in SF).

Worst Features

Lights behind stereo panel get hot; should use leds. Ipod controlled from stereo. Should be able to turn a 12v source on when the car is off. MPG could be better. 2nd gear has a bit too narrow of a range.
