2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is the best vehicle I have ever
owned; responsive, fun to drive;
reliable and comfortable during the
long drives. The new styling is
appealing and the improvements to the
interior affords storage and
accessibility without taking your eyes
off the road. I bought my Forester in
February, so I was able to test its AWD
ability...I was impressed. I highly
recommend this vehicle to anyone young
or old. The base model offers just more
than enough options.


Best Features

AWD, Interior styling, cargo, ground clearance, responsiveness.


Worst Features

I'm not too fond of the cupholders and the gas tank could be a tad bit larger.

Review

This car was perfect when I test drove
it and picked it up at the dealership.
Unlike past purchases from GM
dealerships there were no flaws or
mechanical things in need of
correction. The car's 4 wheel drive
system gave exceptional performance
during these past winter months. The
standard features that came with the
car and its comparatively low price
make it the best deal I've had in many
years.


Best Features

Comfort for big drivers - I'm 6'4". Good gas mileage and responsive handling.


Worst Features

Would like better acceleration but not at the cost of diminished mileage.

Review

This has to be one of the best cars on
the market today, but also one of the
most understated. The safety is
unmatched in its class, and the all-
wheel drive is amazing. On a recent
ski trip into the mountains, while
everyone was pulled over to the side
of the road putting on chains, I just
cruised right past them. While 4x4 F-
150 with chains were spinning out in
front of me, I just glided over the
snow. Extremely reliable- no problems
whatsoever.


Best Features

All-wheel drive, high ground clearance, large cargo area, very good stock sound system.


Worst Features

Exterior styling could be a little sexier. Interior finishes are very durable and well constructed, but still on the plastic side.
