2004 Forester 2.5 XT


I don't think that is a proper way to drive with an automatic Forester. It isn't one of those cars with a quasi-automatic/manual. The 1/2/3 automatic gears are meant to be used for problem situations like starting off on ice, or holding a lower gear to help the brakes in a long extreme downhill. I wouldn't drive my FXT that way (continual "manual" shifting of the automatic, long-term, while driving the car).
