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
