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


This car is great. I have 4000 miles on
it since I bought it in June. First, it
is extremely comfortable. All the
controls are logically placed. It is
very easy to change the radio, or adjust
the temperature. The visibility from the
Driver's seat is incredible.

Secondly, the ride is incredible. In
heavy rainstorms, it felt like most
other cars on dry pavement. It was sure
and steady.

The gas mileage has been better than EPA
estimates. On a recent 250 mile road
trip, I got over 29 MPG and that
includes being stuck in traffic for an hour.

Finally, it is quiet. It is quieter at
highway speeds than any other car I have
owned, including sedans.

Best Features

Heated Seats. Heated Windshield Wiper De-Icers. Heated Outside Mirrors. :)

Worst Features

Please make the center armrest taller.
