2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Leather Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

I researched long and hard for a new mini-suv and none compared to Subaru's drive, interior, and special "extras" (ie, HUGE sunroof).Traveling the country on interstates, mountains, and trails through sunshine, rain, and snow, the AWD and handling has been exceptional, making for a fun and trusted drive.10K mi in 6mos and not a single rattle or problem. Even with only 165 hp, no problems passing or climbing hills. Love the interior styling and auto climate control--def. worth upgrading to prem leather pkg. Totally satisfied!

Favorite Features

Entire interior (including leather), heated seats, huge sunroof, gas mileage, AWD, auto dimming mirror w/ compass, 6-disc cd system, "tightness" of vehicle, automatic on & off of interior lights and headlights, automatic climate control, cruise control, history of reliability.

Suggested Improvements

Visor mirrors need lights. A little more cargo room maybe (it's sufficient but could be better). Although much better than 2002, exterior styling could still be "pepped up" a bit.
