2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X Premium Package 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Bought this car after viewing Consumer Reports; safety and handling are definite concerns. The Forester handles like a dream in inclement weather, really sticks to the ground around curves. Gas mileage runs 22-23 mpg, was expecting a bit better but still good. Only thing I dislike about the car is the driver's cupholders and center armrest, not convenient nor comfortable. Otherwise, it's a great car!

Best Features

Handling, fuel economy, sportiness, 4WD comes in handy.

Worst Features

Figure out a better setup for cupholders and make the armrest more comfortable.
