One of the worst cars I have ever owned
By New Subaru owner on


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


Nice car in many respects, but the engine hesitation when starting out from a complete stop is terrible. Gets worse as outside temperature gets over 90 and AC is on. Dealer tells me that it is normal. I think a 3 or 4 second hesitation is unsatisfactory and unsafe since you never know what its going to do when you give it some gas.

Best Features

Corners well, gas mileage is good and seats are comfortable.

Worst Features

Engine performance is a disaster and rattles from the rear are annoying.
