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


Today (7/2/02) I read an article on SUV
bumpers. It seem that the purchase of
my '03 Forester was even a smarter
decision than I thought. The Forester
was the only mini SUV that obtained
a "good" rating on a 5mph bumper bash.
the Honda CRV and Saturn Vue both
failed. I may need to amend my previous
comment about Subarus being pricy. (It
does seem that you get what you pay
for!). I have 3000 miles on my XS and
have been getting a consistent 25 mpg
on the cheap ARCO 87 octane gas.

I keep telling my wife how much I love
the car, so maybe she won't take it
from me!

Best Features

All wheel drive, heated seats, fuel mileage.

Worst Features

A larger fuel tank would be great. I can only get to 300-350 miles before I have to fill up. My previous cars could get me to 400 (they had 18+ gal tanks)
