2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X L.L.Bean Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I have put approximately 2000 miles on this car and it has performed flawlessly. The upgraded interior and features remind me of a Volvo (I have owned 4). The performance and handling is like my old BMW 530i. It gets 31 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city, and uses regular unleaded. The car is well designed inside with lots of convenient features. The ride is very smooth. This car is a great alternative to a Honda or Toyota. Dollar for dollar it has more value, in my opinion, and it also drives better than a Honda CR-V or a Toyota RAV4.

Best Features

Handling, performance, safety rating, gas mileage, legendary durability, in-dash CD changer, gigantic sunroof, AWD, ground clearance, storage space, upscale wheels and tires.

Worst Features

Although the exterior styling of this car seems to improve with every model year, it still has a different look about it. However the styling is functional and well engineered.
