2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
The Forester X is a great value in
terms of price, safety, and
reliability. ABS and AWD are standard,
and it has received good scores in all
the crash tests. The driving position
is great, even for short people like
myself, and visibility is excellent.
Handling is agile and stable, even when
braking while turning hard. Lots of fun
on dirt roads! I have no complaints.
Auto-dimming mirrors, grocery hooks,
storage nooks, lumbar support, great
driving position, AWD, and the list
The only thing that could make this a
better vehicle is to add a little more
horsepower, though it's quite
sufficient as is at 157 or so.
