2004 or 2005 Forester?
Posted 27 April 2004 - 09:02 AM
I have previously posted on the old version of this forum and I'm a long time Subaru owner (on number 4 and counting). I'm considering getting an '04 XS to replace my '96 Legacy LS Wagon. I recently saw Subaru's announcement about the '05 Forester line-up, including the LL Bean edition:
Based on this release, it appears that the 2005 is getting, among other things:
-Monotone color only for XS (except LL Bean)
-New 3-Spoke Steering Wheel
-Power Driver's Seat (XS and up)
-Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) system to X & XS (already in XT)
-Dual-stage deployment driver’s air bag
-Standard air filtration system
-Illuminated power lock switches
-Raised black-letter tires
I don't know if prices have been released (I assume they will go up if equipment is added, but who knows), but I was wondering if anyone is considering waiting for an '05 based on these features, especially the ETC.
Thanks for any responses
