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

Review

Good car for the dollar. Handles very well and gets good mileage if driven smooth. The pickup is quick but will show it is a 4 cylinder with 4 people and cargo. The seats are not that comfortable and the engine idles rough. Just change the oil and bring it for regular checkups. Tires are good but expensive to change. Rotate them often with AWD.

Favorite Features

The AWD is the best feature. Handles well on the highway. Standard roof racks and the rear door opens upward for ease of loading. The ground clearance appears to be better than full size pickups.

Suggested Improvements

I would recommend offering a V6 but the trend is to offer a new model. It would be nice if the rear window slid down, but it may allow fumes in. The luxury package seems to be worth the money.
