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


I purchased this auto wanting the performance of a sedan and the cargo capacity of a mid-sized SUV. I feel that the XT has the "sports car performance" and SUV attributes that are equal or better than other autos in its class. Similar to the performance is the quality of the powerplant and drivetrain. I feel that the Forester XT has the quality and longevity that will make it enjoyable for many years to come.

Best Features

A more "sporty" exterior compared to older Forester models.

Worst Features

Optional six speed?
