2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I love this car. It is peppy, agile, and comfortable. Its design is well thought out and it has a roomy interior for both passengers and cargo. I was reluctant to move from the six cylinder engines of my previous vehicles to a four banger, but this Subaru engine delivers plenty of horsepower. The bonus from that is much better fuel economy with little noticeable drop in vehicle power.

Best Features

I like the long list of Subaru standard features that, in comparable models, are added on as extras (CD player, AC, power windows & mirrors, etc.).

Worst Features

The only criticism I would offer is that the hill-holder clutch feature is too sensitive, causing it to engage in situations where it is really not needed.
