My wife and I have zero complaints. We are both previous Subaru owners, I'm still driving a 1996 Outback Sport Impreza. If you like Subaru's you won't be disappointed, the Forester handles, sounds, feels, and drives like a Subaru. We love the power adjustable seat and the clear view of the road. The turning radius of this size vehicle is great. The heated seats control does take some time to get use to. The radio could use an upgrade, but with some fine tuning the premium radio sounds decent. If your the type of person that needs alot of pick up and go, I recommend the XT. My wife and I are very happy with the non- turbo power. Tons of room and great for outdoor recreation. MPG = AWD.
