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


I have a cabin in the mountains, and I
need AWD for the winter. I recently
went up for the weekend only to see
Cars coming down the mountian with
their flashers on (because of snow)
however my little subie handled
perfectly with out a slip. I thought I
would be getting better gas mileage
than I am, only getting about 26-28 on
the highway (must be my lead foot).

There is nothing bad about the car that
relatively cheap aftermarket gear can't
fix --talking about shifter knobs and
tint not expensive body kits.

Best Features

The best AWD on the road, perfection. 2.5 litre 4-cyl! Large four for good power, but low fuel usage. Drive of a car, looks of a SUV or CUV. Hill Holder is nice, esp. off the beaten path.

Worst Features

Twitchy Speedo, Stereo sounds like it is underwater (think aftermarket), Needs new shifter knob. Factory Tint.
