Luv my Scoobie!
By diane on


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


This little SUV with the Turbo will move when I need it to. It's so handy to haul items, easy to fold seats down, easy to remove the headrests. I love the auto climate control, great stereo. I have great control of car in adverse weather conditions - I feel SAFE driving this car. Doors feel solid when you shut them.

Best Features

See above, also, it's just plain fun to drive.

Worst Features

A lot of wind noise, has a squeak when it's windy and you're driving around 75- 80. Transmission seems weak, it shifts rough when going from 1st to 2nd (haven't needed this serviced). Gas mileage is awful for such a small vehicle - that is the only reason I would consider trading for another car.
