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


Bought very recently, so no comment
about reliability valid at this time.
Test drove both the XT turbo and non-
turbo XS. Liked both actually, but
shocked by the goodess and tractability
of the turbo 2.5 engine. Tons of
torque. No turbo wind-up. None. Motor
goes about business effortlessly in day
to day driving - much less frenetic
than most autos, can get the job done
at low rpm easily so it ends up being
smooth and quiet. This car has two
personalities - the very competent and
comfortable daily driver being the main
and most useful one. Push the
accelerator past half tho'and it just
flat flies. No noise or fanfare, just
takes off.
