2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 4A)


Decided to splurge on the turbo engine and am glad I did. The Forester is lots of fun to drive. It has the practicality of a small SUV, but the maneuverability and nimble handling of a car. I love the cargo space, especially with the back seat down. Controls are extremely logical, ergonomic, and easy to use. Some people complain about limited back seat room, but that is not an issue for us.

Best Features

Turbo engine. Intuitive, easy to use controls. Maneuverability. No blind spots. Huge sunroof. Effective climate control. Excellent build quality.

Worst Features

Audio controls on steering wheel. Larger storage bin in center console. Different anchoring system for rear center seat belt.
