2004 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


An excellent family performance wagon
with far above average for class engine
performance. It has great utility and
value yet is far from being a mommy
car. It is true to being a small ute
from ride/handling perspective. I
thought it would only be a tall wagon.

Best Features

Turbo power! Ride compliance. Excellent 6 disc audio system. Remote doorlocks and alarm upgrade. Space and utility.

Worst Features

Optional 17 inch wheel and tire package to favor more on road driving and match the very strong engine performance. Also to reduce final drive gear ratio and drop the highway rpm, make first gear more usuable and improve fuel economy.
