Forester XT- better than WRX wagon
By spyderman4774 on
Vehicle2004 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI've had my XT automatic (wife doesn't know how to drive a manual) for about a month now and must say this crossover is awesome! Compared to a WRX automatic that I also drove, the XT's extra displacement means more torque and better acceleration off the line. For American driving styles this better enables one to keep up in traffic and equals more smiles/mile. The seats are very comfortable and the interior user-friendly, also headroom will not be a concern for 6'-plus drivers. The handling is one area where the WRX wagon might have the advantage, the XT has a bit too much body roll in corners (even compared to my trade-in vehicle, an '01 Pathfinder). XT= practicality & fun!
Best FeaturesGreat stock stereo system, low-end torque, plentiful storage compartments, fun-to-drive factor.
Worst FeaturesAdd a beefier rear anti-roll bar (body roll excessive), improve driving position (seats are a bit low). Torque-steer prevalent with automatic.
