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


We have been looking for a long time for a new car/suv, we have looked at EVERYTHING out there that is the size of the Forester. It came down to the Forester and the RAV4. First,i have to say i am a die hard Toyota fan, I belive the best cars on the road. However the Forester fit more for what we needed. So far the Forester seem to be good, the transmission seems to shift hard and there is a whine out on the freeway but the dealer has said that it is the AWD. Not sure if I belive that, I will do more checking for mysefl. There is one rattle in the dash that IS going to get fixed, Ii hate rattles! All in all I think it will be a good car.

Best Features

AWD, ABS, side airbags, power

Worst Features

A little loud on the freeway. transmission could shift a little smother. Don't care for the whine on the freeway.
