Forester Fan Forever!
By Tom in FL on


2005 Subaru Forester XS L.L.Bean Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This is a small SUV that just loves you back with its performance, economy, and looks. I have never had a car before where people seeing it just stop and stare and then all nod their heads to their friends! And I thought the Outback was great; it is but the Forester L.L. Bean Edition is a luxury car with a good value price. And I don't want to forget the wonderful service by my Subaru dealer which is seldom needed!

Best Features

The ride and handling are super. The exterior/interior could not be better (though I wish arm rest was higher rather than an add-on). Radio and sound system are tops. When moon roof is open, it's so large it's like a convertible. Air deflector does not make noise, either. Get LL Bean/leather.

Worst Features

Arm rest needs to be higher as standard.
