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

Review

Current employer bought this car on my request, for the work that requires me to drive 48K miles a year. I have not had a single problem with this car and got me out of many sticky situations (some were intentional, just to see how it performs). Drives sure-footed way in rain or snow of Kansas. Descent gas mileage and with that price and safety rating, this is the best value out there. Currently own Chevy Sub and Lexus ES300 but I prefer and feel safer to drive this car in any weather, qith the family. The brakes also deserve a praise. I remember a reviewer compare the handling as if it was running on "rail", and I can not find a better description

Favorite Features

Handling, excellent AWD system, very solid braking system, large sun-roof, manageble size (compare to Sub), reliability (after 48k miles, plenty of power for daily commuting.

Suggested Improvements

No armrest for left or right arm, whimpy heated seats, easily-chipped front grill.
