2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Great handling for an AWD vehicle.
Great visibility, headroom (I'm 6'4"),
and front-seat legroom. Excellent
cornering. Could use a tad more
passing acceleration, but it's only a 4-
cyl, and is fine. Liked the pre-2003
exterior styling more (was more
unique), now it looks like a Honda.
Front-seat roominess & visibility and
A bit more engine pep. I understand
the '04 is adding an optional turbo-
charged engine, which probably takes
care of that
