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


Best car ever. The buying experience was non-pushy, caring and my sales consultant still is in contact with me ... amazing. I've owned a BMW325 then a stupid KIA Sportage. Fish tail city on ice with the KIA. The Beemer was nice in bad weather, still slid on ice at rare times but ... my Forrester is just a sure footed, fun driving experience. Deep NYC rain, snow, ice, sharp cornering, passing; no problem. I look for reasons to drive. I call my car an engineering marvel. My honey, an electrical engineer says the same. I LOVE my Forester.

Best Features

The AWD, the improved, great looking body style, the agility, reliable, quick warm-up, the deicer mirrors, heated seats, inside heat is ahhhh!

Worst Features

Better heating controls, difficult to balance -- sometimes it gets so warm inside I have to open a window. The open seam 'appearance' near the doors.
