2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Fun, is the best way to describe the
Forester. I tried several other small
SUV's ( CRV, VUE ) none matched the
overall "fun" factor. Performance was
a concern from reading other reviews,
but it has a real quick "first" step
that makes the performance seem better
than it probably is.
No problems, Great Car
Fun to drive
Great turning radius
The cup holder is still not in a real
Fuel economy is marginal
