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


This is one well built car! Extremely solid
feeling and it seems that everywhere you look,
it is evident the engineers put a lot of thought
into the design. Despite not being a turbo, I
haven't found myself in a situation where I
needed more power than what this naturally
aspirated engine puts out. Good low end
torque gets you moving pretty quickly. Chose
this over a Honda CRV because of the lower
risk of rollover and a superior interior.

Best Features

Heated seats are wonderful! Air conditioner is quite powerful. Ride is very comfortable and there is plenty of room in the back for all of our stuff. Great visibility. Interior materials and build quality are excellent.

Worst Features

Center console cup holders are kind of shallow. I have this fear that my supersized beverage will go tumbling out but it hasn't happened yet.
