Traded in my Explorer
By Robert on


2005 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I traded in my Explorer for this Forester. Having now driven more than 14000 miles in 6 months, I have saved quite a bit on fuel costs, as well as having the comfort of a smoother ride. It has all the room I need, even when taking extended trips, and it looks good. I caught the dealer at a good time, and they took $4000 off the sticker before my trade.

Best Features

We had a large snow storm right after I bought my Forester, and with drifts up to the front head lights, I had no problem traveling on the road. I love the AWD.

Worst Features

Put a frame around the windows. Glass on rubber will eventually wear out and allow wind noise.
