What a great car. I've had it for 3
weeks and have been averaging 34 mpg on
the highway! Fun to drive, MONSTER
sunroof. Very nimble on the road.
Used to own a Loyale wagon; reliability
was great. Safety ratings are very
good. Check it out.
Sunroof; AWD; safety features
a little tight in the back seat; could
use a little more power
This is our families' first Subaru, and
will definitely not be the last. After
a protracted period of test driving
many competing models, we settled on
the Subaru Forester XS for its' sturdy
feel, excellent visibility, ease of
manueverability, included options, and
safety features. Our dealer of
purchase: DON DOCKSTEADER SUBARU in
Vancouver Canada offered a 24 hour, no
obligation test drive which finalized
climate control, all wheel drive,
comfort of seats, and visibility.
Suggest that the interior color be
changed. If you do not like the 'wierd
tan' interior color, exterior color
choices become very limited.

2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
My lease was up on my 01 Honda CRV EX
auto. The Subaru has much more power,
better transmission, tons of standard
features, drives like a sports car,
does not lean much in curves compared
to the CRV, great grip, great steering
feel, brake pedal soft but stops well,
well made, easy maintenance with
directions in manual. About 2 miles per
gallon better fuel mileage than CRV.
Has more room than older Forrester I
had looked at a few years ago. I like
it much better and was same price I
paid for my old CRV when new.
The 2.5l boxer engine. Nice growling
sound when revved. Lasts a long time.
Nice shifting automatic transmission.
weatherband on the cd stereo, fog
lights, nice looking dashboard.
I wish all Subaru's came with standard
four wheel disc brakes with a firmer
pedal feel. Driver's door armrest not
really in the right place to use while
