2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
After researching small, safe SUVs for over a year, I narrowed my searched
between the Subaru Forester and the Honda CRV. The cars were so close
in every possible category it was a difficult decision. The final decision was
based on safety. Government and insurance safety ratings for the 2002
Foresters were slightly ahead of the 2002 CRVs. So far, I love the car, and
have not had any problems. It's safe and fun to drive.
AWD, Weatherband radio, hill holder
The hill holder is great, but there should be an option to turn it off.
