2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Do not waste your time with the CR-V. The 2003 Forester smokes the CR-V! We have had our 2003 Forester XS for a month now. No problems at all! The CR-V does NOT have full time all wheel drive. It is a four wheel drive system that does not engage all wheels until the front wheels lose traction. The basic design is bad! You have to lose traction/control in the CR-V before all wheels engage. Not too smart! I thought the idea of all wheel drive is to not lose control! Donít let the four cylinders fool you in the 2003 Forester. It is quick. We recommend the 5-speed over the automatic transmission. And to answer your question, no, I do not work for Subaru.
