OK Overall, Great in snow!
By Higgledy on


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


After driving this car for 14 months and 36,000 miles I am ready to trade on something more refined. In 36,000 miles I had one major repair--replaced the catalytic converter, covered under warranty. But the thing that bothers me most is the rattles, noise, and harshness that have developed in 14 months.

Best Features

All Wheel Drive is the best! Fun to drive and the hatch.

Worst Features

Refine car's interior: reduce rattles and road noise. Interior materials could be less prone to scratches as well as improved electronics.
