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

Review

Bought the Subie a month ago with 62K on the OD. The boxer engines are prone to piston slap and mine was no exception. I bought it stipulating that the piston slap would be remedied and it was (valves were adjusted).The car does what it's supposed to do - gets you around with decent gas mileage and sure-footedness in inclement weather. This suv is 6 years old and I am confidant I will still be driving it 6 years from now.

Favorite Features

AWD, reliability, fit and finish, fog lights, storage capability.

Suggested Improvements

Piston slap needs to be remedied before purchasing.
