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


We traded in a 2003 Forester. The new one is very similar but with a vast improvement in brake pedal travel. My wife loves this car more than her first.

Best Features

AWD in upstate NY is wonderful. Also, the heated seats and auto climate control. Big improvement in sound is you upgrade the speakers.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is similar to the 2003 - 21 mpg. Could be improved. Also, Geolander tires do not last more than 18,000 miles on the front if you don't rotate them. Better tires and mpg improvement would be great.
