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.
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!
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.
