2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I am totally pleased with this car, it's great. I
am 6'4 and my wife is 5'6 so we were looking
for a car that would fit us both. It had to be
roomy to travel in and I have this thing about
simplicity and sturdiness. This has been an
excellent choice. I love the zippiness of the
Forester, it really has a bunch of pick up.
Definetly get the 5 speed Manual.
We have about 10,000 miles on it and it has
proven to be reliable and fun to drive. You can
get this car for less than $18,000 if you wheel
and deal right.Subaru should offer leather and
sunroof on 5 speed manual.
Fun to drive, feels very zippy. Great stock tires
(Yokahama). The dependability of Subaru.
AWD is excellent! Feels stable on
slippery roads. Antilock brakes standard. The
body style is very user friendly. Is a great deal
for the price.
Body feels like tin and dents easily. A mid
door body strip would help protect the body
from parking lot dings.
More fun gadgets on the interior. Only has one
auto window setting (drivers side window goes
down automatically with one push). Windows
should have an auto up/down feature
