2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


It has been a wonderful vehicle thus far. I bought it for the AWD, and I feel really safe driving it in the snow and ice. I don't ride in the backseat, but I've heard from my passengers that it can be a little tight if you are over 6'0". The cargo room is just perfect for what I need it for. I enjoy finding new places to hide/store things. The front windows are rather noisy when driving at high speeds, but overall, I have been very pleased with my purchase. I did my research and it has paid off.

Best Features

AWD, easy to see out of, perfect size for two adults and two 100 lb dogs, and the safety rating.

Worst Features

A diesel or hybrid engine would be nice, more comfortable seats and raise the console up a bit for an elbow rest.
