2003 Forester-Firdt new car in 30 years
By JIMBOB17 on
Vehicle
2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I tested the Forester on a long hill with full A/C and the manual Forester had plenty left. 25-27 mpg the last few fillups. Its quiet inside and fun to drive. My wife is disabled and its easier for her to get out of the Forester than the car she uses. I'm 6'4" and there is plenty of head and leg room. Great visibility compared to competitors cars I test drove. When you get the Forester get the Rubberized cargo liner. It will save the carpet.
Favorite Features
The power is more than adaquate for my use. Controls are intuitive. Plenty of room when you drop the seats to move gear comensurate with the vehicle size.
Suggested Improvements
Make the arm rests with a more easily cleanable material. Fine tune the hill holder feature. Its great on the hills but it also grabs on level ground when you back up and you have to get used to it.
