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

Review

I researched the mini suv's and bought a 2003 Forester. I was worried about the lack of space, but after a year of use, I no longer have that concern. It really proved itself after hauling my son and all of his stuff 800 miles away to college. With a roof cargo carrier from Sears and the Forester's rear compartment loaded up, I got 28 mpg @ 75 mph. It was a comfortable ride and actually has more leg room than the Safari mini van. The Forester is not as large as my previous vehicles, but then I didn't get 28 mpg with them. I guess there are trade offs with everything, but for a all round, do just about anything vehicle, I am very satisfied with my choice.

Favorite Features

Suggested Improvements

Make the window in the rear hatch open separately from the hatch, Let the rears seat backs recline alittle bit.
