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


Have a 40 mile daily commute on hilly and winding back roads. Subaru performs well in all seasons. Effective fog lights in inclement weather.

Best Features

Security of top safety ratings, 4-wheel drive in poor weather, reasonable gas mileage, good driving position. This vehicle is also driven by two teenage sons, so safety is a paramount issue in our family.

Worst Features

Would benefit from 5-speed transmission. Door fit not as tight as Toyota Camry I also own; Camry has light around keyhole that is a nice feature when starting car in unlit area.
