2003 vs 2002
By Nova Tony on
Vehicle
2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Leather Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
We've had a 2002 Forester S Premium for a little over two years; and like it so much that we recently replaced our other car with a 2003 XS with the premium leather package. Both are auto trans. Drove the 2003 from Virginia up to Acadia Maine and spent a month driving in Maine and Western Massachusetts (3000 miles). No complaints, very similar to the prior model (which is an excellent vehicle) except for a flaw in the driver's seat adjustment mechanism.
Favorite Features
Auto open and close feature of the power moon roof, new for the 2003.
Suggested Improvements
The 2002 driver's seat height adjustment is far more sophisticated -- both the front and the rear adjust up and down independently. The 2003 has been cheapened with a single adjustment in the front. Needs the dual adjustments, or a power option.
