Subaru Forester X premium
By maverick on


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


The car is a winner with great IIHS crash test ratings. For me it was a toss up between a Toyota RAV4 and this . When it comes to winter driving the Forester beats the RAV4 . During extreme driving conditions , the risk of driving is increased and my motive of buying the Forester was for times like these.

Best Features

High SUV seating, huge moon roof, ride quality, safety features, 4 wheel disc brakes, side indicator lights, elimination of blind spot due to third window, great turning.

Worst Features

Doors do not lock when gear shifted to D. No auxiliary audio input. Cramped rear seats. Automatic temperature control; not quite sure its optimal as the AC is always ON in summer. CD and audio display is too low and is not clearly visible during daytime (can learn something from GM/Toyota).
