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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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 driving.
