2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is the first year of the redesign, and Subaru did a good job making the car feel more "quality." The fit/finish is higher than the previous generation, yet they still managed to pack in a lot of bang-for-the-buck features. This car is great for winter/cold-weather climates due to AWD, heated seats, etc.

Best Features

The very respectable safety ratings (highest for a compact SUV).

Worst Features

The automatic climate control is finicky. You either freeze or fry. The LED lights that indicated climate settings are hard to read in daylight.
