2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
The 2003 Forester has been a dissappointment. The engine is the weakest link. No power on hills or with a load, noisy and rough at idle, and MPG is pathetic for a 4. If you value performance at all, wait for the turbo.BOTTOM LINE _ we were spoiled by our MAXIMA and Forester is definitely a let down.
Favorite Features
The styling is much improved. 60/40 Full Time AWD is the BEST. Lot's of thoughtful cubbys. Liftgate better than swing out rear door. Heated wipers are SWEET!
Suggested Improvements
This car is NOISY due to the VW style engine design and CHEAP interior plastic. TURBO, TURBO, TURBO. Shoulda got a better stereo. More rear legroom.
