2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Excellent combination of style and practicalaty. It's surefooted as a mountain goat and always eager to please. I love the interior with all the nooks and crannies to store stuff. I counted 21 storage places, not to mention the places under the rear deck. Great visibility, and it pulls my pop-up camper with ease. The vehicle feels like it was poured out of a mold, instead of manufactured.
The feel of its handling abilities. The pickup is just right. It is very versatile, perfect for camping and outdoor use. I love the 12 volt outlets, the cargo area is huge for the size of the car.
Does have a leak in the window seal, causing some whistling, the rear brakes tend to squeak, but only on occasion, I would like to see the wiper controls to be spread out instead of all being congregated on one arm.
