Puts the Sport in Utility
By Fred Bednar on


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


I've owned sports cars, TR-4, TR-6,
Mustangs, and SUV's: Jeep Cherokee
Laredo, and Ford Explorer Eddie Bower.
The Forester XT turbo is the "real
thing" for fun and performance, on road
or off. It's great on gas, terrific
handling, and solid build quality. I
traded my 1999 Forester in on the XT.
Which was a major reason for buying
another Forester, because the '99 was
trouble free after 5 years of
ownership, AND no squeaks or rattles
either. It was PERFECT!

Best Features

Great performance, power and handling. Comfortable interior, and excellent quality.

Worst Features

More rear leg room.
