Fun Subaru
By John_vree on


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


Overall fun car to drive due to 200+ hp. Outstanding in bad weather (Des Moines in January) and lots of acceleration and good handling. We have hauled SUV loads of products from Sam's Club, etc, so interior storage is good. I don't get the 20 mpg from a 2005 4-banger. Highway mpg is about 25. Interior legroom for a 6'2" guy is limited. I guess you can't have it all.

Best Features

Acceleration and handling are very good and make the car fun to drive.

Worst Features

Improve the MPG and the room for big guys. At 6'2", I have to fold up pretty good to fit in.
