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


My pregnant wife and I bought a new Forester
2 months ago. She's been eyeing
Foresters for a while, but I always
thought they weren't "tough enough" for
a big guy like me. She finally talked
me into it, and I'm glad she did. We
just had our first big snow of the year
and the Forester was awesome! We felt
safe, comfortable, and confident that
the Subaru would get us around safely.
So far, I've been impressed by the
sportiness, handling, engineering,
reliability, and fuel economy. We're
getting about 24 mpg. After two
months, I'm considering buying my own
for my next car too, something I
thought I would never say. We feel like
we made a very smart decision and we
highly recommend it.

Best Features

Sportiness, fuel economy for an AWD car, no blind spots; feels like you can see everything around you, driving it makes you feel smart because it's just so darn practical.

Worst Features

I don't like the cloth interior, seems like it could fray or damage easily, though it hasn't yet.
