The Subaru Forester XT version has a LOT more pep and responsiveness than the 2.5 litre engined Forester. Gas mileage suffers a little (we are currently getting between 24 and 28 highway and 20-24 in town) but the additional acceleration more than makes up for that. I like the AWD and the option to "manually" shift the car, and the S1 and S# gearing and suspension adjustment for windy roads or snow or rain. If you are really in the snow, you can select XMode which is like a four wheel drive mode for up to 25 miles per hour (it automatically drops out of Xmode above 24 MPH). Real leather seats. Nice stitching. Well appointed with dual air and heat. Heated front seats. HUGE sunroof with windbreak at front. Handles wonderfully.
One of the most amazing things about the car is the mileage. After every trip, the miles per gallon used is shown. I cannot say how often it is 34.7 or 30 plus miles per gallon. It was not supposed to be this good according to what was reflected on the window. I am very impressed.
It is also one of the smoothest running vehicles I have ever owned.
Very Reliable Vehicle

The Subarus! great cars..very reliable, safe and good looking! I love Subarus, I just bought my 3rd one, I got the Forester Limited 2.51 and is worth every penny. The ride is so smooth, the car handles the curves great. It is quite and very spacious, the back seats have so much space, great for tall people. The trunk is big too. I have owned them for years, they have never given me any problems, I keep them updated with their services and maintenance. On top when you get them from the Subaru dealerships, you will always get great support.
