2005 Subaru Forester XT AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Trying to find my wife a useful non-barge wagon or SUV, looked at Outback, took a chance on Forester. Congratulating myself. Turbo is very quick, handles way better than most sedans, feels bulletproof, great build quality. Took it from GA to New England over holidays, got into big snow, AWD very confidence building. Highly recommend.

Best Features

Rush to redline in second. Front seating position and comfort. Big sunroof. Usefulness of area behind front seats.

Worst Features

Like everybody else, a couple inches rear legroom.
