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


This is our first AWD vehicle. We did a lot of research via web/word of mouth and were led to the Subaru Forester. We were not disappointed, it has performed in a very admirable manner since we got it. The ride is very comfortable, the gas mileage is very decent (around 24mpg). the handling is exceptional. We did have a couple of body discrepancies that came with the car, but dealership rectified them promptly. We are totally content with this vehicle at this time.

Best Features

Great vision, heated seats, handling, quality interior, comfortable seating.

Worst Features

Could have a better warranty, pricing is a little more than most (with comparable features), base engine could have a little more oomph (though I understand the 2006 models have added hp).
