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

Review

Got the 2.5X after looking all small SUV's and test driving the CRV and Escape. The Forester had the best ride/handling/road manners. Downsized from a extended minivan (family of 4) haven't missed it, not even on our long summer trips. Put a Thule box on carry gear for trips and camping. Overall, the car surprizes us with how fun it is to drive and how refined it is for a small car. My wife would rather drive the Forester than her Lexus ES300! Turbo would be great fun, but has even worse fuel economy.

Best Features

AWD system, power, looks, seating position/comfort (9 in height difference between drivers), performance, standard features, safety features.

Worst Features

Interior trim quality(plastic scratches easily), Interior carpet quality(shows wear with minimal use), fuel economy could be better for a small car.
