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

Review

We looked at several small SUV's including Santa Fe, Escape, VUE,and Honda CRV. We didn't like the "feel of the CRV, especially the dash-mounted shifter. We were unsure of the reliability and fuel economy of the others. We test-drove a 2002 Forester and the driving position was unsatisfactory for my wife who is 5 ft tall. The 2003 Forester solved all the problems we had with the 2002 model and it was very easy to decide on it. We feel the dealer gave us a good discount, considering it was the first 2003 he sold.

Favorite Features

Reliability and fuel economy. We feel this vehicle is going to be low-cost of ownership. Also, we like the moon roof and driving position (sits higher than the Honda Accord it replaced).

Suggested Improvements

More power, but not if it hurts fuel economy.
