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


Being a previous truck owner, not sure why I waited to test drive a Subaru...now I don't want to drive anything else; 30 mpg, room for three pasengers and gear, off-road ability (had it in the mountains last week, got dirty quick, snow and mud couldn't stop it) and an overall driveability like no other vehicle I have ever had. It grips the road no matter what the weather is and let's not forget the five star crash rating.This vehicle has it all!

Best Features

AWD, fuel economy, overall ride quality, updated exterior for '05

Worst Features

Can sometimes hear some road noise that transfers from the back of vehicle due to open trunk space - cargo cover eliminates some of this, possibly put disc brakes all the way around for base X model.
