2003 Subaru Forester Wagon XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I absolutly love my forester. I have
never had any mechanical problems with
it and i am at 28,000 miles. I live in
the rockie mountains of colorado and
the AWD has made life so easy come
winter time. while i see others digging
out their cars i just hop in and drive
away.


Best Features

my sunroof. It is great almost like a convertible. THe stereo is great also always sounds good and never really have to change cds since there are 6 in there. The allwheel drive and it only costs me $70 in gas to drive 1200 miles.


Worst Features

The one and only thing i would change is make it a little quieter of a drive. When cruising down the highway with the windows up you can hear the wind blowing.

Has exceeded every expectation. I have
put 60000 miles on the vehicle in two
years and I still look forward to
getting behind the wheel.


Best Features

Ride, drivability, visability.


Worst Features

A little more pep in the engine would be nice but not necessary.

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


Review

I researched the mini suv's and bought
a 2003 Forester. I was worried about
the lack of space, but after a year of
use, I no longer have that concern. It
really proved itself after hauling my
son and all of his stuff 800 miles away
to college. With a roof cargo carrier
from Sears and the Forester's rear
compartment loaded up, I got 28 mpg @
75 mph. It was a comfortable ride and
actually has more leg room than the
Safari mini van. The Forester is not
as large as my previous vehicles, but
then I didn't get 28 mpg with them. I
guess there are trade offs with
everything, but for a all round, do
just about anything vehicle, I am very
satisfied with my choice.


Best Features

Handling, location of all controls, seat comfort, gas mileage


Worst Features

Make the window in the rear hatch open separately from the hatch, Let the rears seat backs recline alittle bit.
