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

Review

Wanted an SUV for toughness and abilities. Looked at practically all and listened to what everone said - carefully. Had owned a Subaru wagon previously so deliberately left that to last. Absolutely no comparison, even went back to refresh my memory of the best of the competition. The Forester is relatively simple (not all bells & whistles of say Ford Escape) but does it all so much better - eg, space, comfort, access, reliability etc, etc. Yes, it could be better as nothing is absolutely perfect but the topper is that it is the safest SUV on the road. That and its clear vision from anywhere inside means most to me, and my family.

Favorite Features

Reliability, clear unobstructed road views, protection to all, simple rear access, so easy/pleasant to drive, off- road capability. As a civil engineer & skier I have tested the latter ability, believe me.

Suggested Improvements

Cloth seat coverings. If I could afford leather I might be tempted but Subaru have some strange cloths? Not unpleasant, but Mazda do it better.
