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


Bought an '03 soob forester X for my
wife. So far very happy (only 700
miles) Build quality and fit/finish
very good. Handling excellent. Interior
not plush but firm/supportive. Base CD
player fine. Room pretty decent for a
basically subcompact frame. Visibility
excellent. Controls easy to operate,
wiper stick a little complicated LOL.
Exterior looks are sharp, IMO, better
looking than previous generation. Wind
noise acceptable, dB at idle,low. Auto
tranny shifts smoothly. Ride decent for
a 99 inch wheelbase. 16 inch wheels
excellent. So far, awesome little
crossover vehicle, well, its really a
little wagon on steroids....

Best Features

handling, turning radius, gas mileage very good, fit and finish tight, undercarriage neat and free of trailing arms etc (like some of the "competition") engine strong with subie reliability

Worst Features

a low pressure turbo option would be fun. The Forester appears to be what it presumes to be.
