2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
This has to be one of the best cars on
the market today, but also one of the
most understated. The safety is
unmatched in its class, and the all-
wheel drive is amazing. On a recent
ski trip into the mountains, while
everyone was pulled over to the side
of the road putting on chains, I just
cruised right past them. While 4x4 F-
150 with chains were spinning out in
front of me, I just glided over the
snow. Extremely reliable- no problems
All-wheel drive, high ground
clearance, large cargo area, very good
stock sound system.
Exterior styling could be a little
sexier. Interior finishes are very
durable and well constructed, but
still on the plastic side.
