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


I purchased the Forester while looking for a small SUV. I thought about a Forester several years before, but passed on it. When I came back for another look, I knew it was for me after the test drive. Personally, I love the interior and the I4 engine is good enough for it. It's not going to go roaring down the interstate, but it's got more pep than many other I4's seem to have. I've had it for a year and I'm completely satisfied with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a moderately priced small SUV without all the frills. All the usual convenience features are there.

Best Features

Interior styling, above average get up and go for an I4.

Worst Features

Gas mileage seems to really go down when reaching 70mph plus.
