Review

My wife and I waited to see the 2003 model, and we are not dissappointed! The new styling makes the car appear like a new model. The reliability of the Subaru nameplate was critical in buying this car,considering the priciness of the Subaru marque. We have owned many Toyotas in the past. With a second home in the mountains, we needed a car with all-wheel drive and yet needed good fuel economy for my drive into Los Angeles for work. Currently, I am very happy with my mileage, which averages 24.5 miles per gallon. I think my wife is going to wrest the Forester away from me very soon.

Favorite Features

All-Wheel drive, heated seats

Suggested Improvements

The power to the windows and moonroof should remain on for a minute or so even after the engine is turned to allow them to be closed if the driver forgets. This feature (on our Toyotas) is very helpful.
