ReviewBought an '03 soob forester X for my wife. So far very happy (only 700 miles) Build quality and fit/finish very good. Handling excellent. Interior not plush but firm/supportive. Base CD player fine. Room pretty decent for a basically subcompact frame. Visibility excellent. Controls easy to operate, wiper stick a little complicated LOL. Exterior looks are sharp, IMO, better looking than previous generation. Wind noise acceptable, dB at idle,low. Auto tranny shifts smoothly. Ride decent for a 99 inch wheelbase. 16 inch wheels excellent. So far, awesome little crossover vehicle, well, its really a little wagon on steroids....
Best Featureshandling, turning radius, gas mileage very good, fit and finish tight, undercarriage neat and free of trailing arms etc (like some of the "competition") engine strong with subie reliability
Worst Featuresa low pressure turbo option would be fun. The Forester appears to be what it presumes to be.
