2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I did the research and study on several
SUV models and test drove several,
including the Forester. My wife had her
heart set on a Forester but I was not
yet convinced this was the best choice.
Knowing this was her car we negotiated
a deal and purchaced a 2003 Forester.
The longer I drive it the more I'm
convinced we made the right choice. Our
fuel milage has been averaging 26-29mpg
and it's a pleasure to drive.
The Forester seems a little small for me
but not bad, and it's a perfect fit for
auto dimming rear view mirror. (I would
have never thought it important but now
I'm spoiled by it)
maybe a little more arm and shoulder
room for us bigger guys and when my back
aches I could use a bit more lumbar
support then given by the seat.
