2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I'm very, very, happy with this vehicle. Great handling and no problems with the snowy backroads of upstate NY due to AWD. Getting about 23 MPH on average - more would be be nice. Armrest/cup holder setup leaves a lot to be desired. Replaced the tires and added tint to the windows straight away. Love sunroof and CD changer. MP3 outlet would be a nice touch. Hate that seat belt chime - would like to turn off while just sitting with the car in park. Excellent crash test reviews - love the side curtain airbag feature. Would buy this car again in a heartbeat.Wish there was a closer dealer. A great deal for the money - holds its resale value well. Overall very satisfied. Highly recommended!

Best Features

Side curtain airbags, 6 CD changer, Climate control, massive sunroof, excellent handling - like a sports car.

Worst Features

Get rid off seat belt chime when car in park. Yokohama tires and donut spare need to go. Fix the armrest/cupholder situation in front seat. Add MP3 outlet. Lock doors automatically when car is placed in drive. Increase fuel MPG.
