Vehicle2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewHi. Just purchased a 2003 Forester XS auto. Love it-in spite of paying too much. Never buy a car for your wife on your anniversary. Compared to my 1981 Subaru Brat, I have no complaints about power! Plus you can drive Forest Service roads at 65 mph and pretend you are Tommi Makinen in the SWRT WRC. Visibility is great, lots of room (haven't sat in the back, just the 2 of us). The auto-climate control is nice, go for the upgraded speakers if you like quality sound (the base is so-so). First tank of gas-got 25.1 mpg on 50-50 mix city/highway. No defects noted, no problems noted in first 500 miles.
Best FeaturesHeated seats (even in Georgia). Auto- climate control. 6-disc in dash cd- changer. AWD and Limited slip-rear. Cupholders that don't block the dash like in our 95 Legacy.
Worst FeaturesA 400hp twin turbo would be nice. And throw in a 6-speed paddle shifter too.
