2005 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Have the car for a few weeks now and
enjoy driving it. Had a 94 Legacy
before, and like the workmanship that
goes into the Subaru line. Car is
peppy, drives like it should... not a
comfy as a sedan, but not as choppy as
a SUV. Consumer rating was 8.7 when I
wrote this, but rating should be
higher if you add up the ratings.
Mistake here I think. Make sure if
the offer you an extended
warranty/service plan that you
negociate HEAVILY or dont get it at
all. Watch out for the "scare
technique". Overall I am very happy
with the purchase. These cars can get
expensive but if this is close to the
94 Legacy I have, well worth the

Best Features

Acceleration. This car has some get up and go. It really kicks in when it shifts into second gear and RPM's between 3-4K. Get the Sunroof. The thing is huge and makes it seem like you are driving a convertable on sunny days.

Worst Features

Didnt get the subwoofer add-on, but will. I am disappointed with the the sound system )speakers. Highway driving is comfy but passing speed (going from 65-75) is less than I expected from 210 HP and the torque listed. Armrest is cheaply screwed in.
