2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

A sturdy car built to last. It gets me through quick turns, bottomless pot holes and icy roads. A great car for the price, don't pay more than invoice...make the dealer show you what they paid for it, money is everything these days. Anyway, just test drive one. If youe have a dog, children, bikes, snowboards etc. save yourself the trouble and get a Forester.

2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Leather Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This is my first Subaru, now I know why subaru owners are so loyal and enthusiastic about their cars. Considered just about every other same type suv and test drove most of them. The Forester was the clear winner. Fit, finish and quality is that of a car worth $1000's more. Proven reliability and advanced safety features just add to the package. Can't wait for the snow.

Subaru Forester is a Good Buy

Review

The visibility provided by the cars height along with the low rear window makes driving and parking easy. The engine has enough power for the freeway and around town. The car has a very solid feel. The seats are also very comfortable both front and back.

Great Handling and Fun to Drive

Review

Not since our Wolfsburg edition VW Cabriolet have we had a car this much fun to drive. The huge moon roof is a nice feature even in bad weather. It is Subaru's dedication to All Wheel Drive that makes this car so much fun to drive. It feels more like a sports car than a mini SUV. No wonder Subaru brags in the beauty of "All Wheel Drive". We have a 4 wheel drive truck to tow the horses, but "All Wheel Drive" is about handling in any weather condition. They pack a lot of features in this car for the price and after you drive it you will understand what Subaru means when they say "The Beauty of All Wheel Drive"

Review

Really used Edmonds and the posted reviews to decide on a small SUV. Really fell in love with the Forester, found CR-V and Santa Fe too big and visibility not nearly as good. Thanks to whomever said get one with the beige (not gray) interior - much better! I got a gold one, love the handling, love the price (a little over $19,000 for a manual X), can't believe it's really mine! It hugs the road, I too went from V-6 to this,but it's fine power- wise. the plentitude of standard features, especially the keyless remote and power everything are great.

tips on equipping

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

Review

i expected to buy an impreza wrx wagon for its performance, but ended up with the forester X instead. what really helps this car stand out is its space and utility (five people plus one bike fit comfortably inside over a three hour car ride), and its interior (far superior to the impreza, finish almost comparable to a luxury car). a little underpowered, but can still comfortably weave through highway traffic when needed. nothing you can't live without. get the pop equip pkg. also request the armrest extension; you won't know where to put your right arm without it.

2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Had need for a new vehicle in Sept and w/ 6 month baby - looked for a "wagon" type car ideally with awd/4wd but not a monster suv and wanted to stay btwn 20- 25k (lower end) after endless searching the forester fit the bill perfectly. have it 3 weeks & already have trip to VT on it. rides great & looks really cool (blk)- constantly getting compliments and it has EVERY feature & then some. got great deal thru BJ's auto website & dealer without much haggle within a few hundred of dealer invoice & dealer threw in bunch of xtras for taking off lot (bumper cover/rearview mirror dimmer/compass, cargonets, roof rubstrips, etc)

2003 Forester-A Great Improvement

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

Review

Last month, I traded in my 2001 Forester L for the 2003 Forester XS Premium Package with Leather. I must say that the new model is a great improvement over the older one. It looks better, rides better, and has a vastly improved interior design (especially the re-located cupholders and the 6-disc in-dash CD/casette stereo).
