Need reliaable AWD for snow - try this! by Walker on 12/28/2010. Trim: 2004 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT Premium, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Does what it's designed to do. No problems in 140K miles other than normal maintenance - which includes all synthetic oils and coolant change every 2 years. Bought from CARMAX w/47K Turbo engine and AT - almost as fast as my Mustang GT in 1st/2nd gears. Put on class 1 tow-hitch. Pulls 16ft outboard with no effort! Drives better than Jeep Cherokee I used to own when it comes to snow and much more civilized ride.
Cons: Wind noise around A pillars - and as another person wrote - "fog" light bulbs royal pain in the xxx to change!
Overall review: Would like a new one - except for the cost!
