Driving around in my Forester
By Lovemycar on


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


Fun to drive. 2.5LXS Premium model has
everything you could want in an SUV
crossover. AWD system makes me feel
safe in the rain. Good pickup. Ride
is smooth and quiet. Leather is good
quality. Controls are nicely placed
and easy to reach for the 5'0 driver.
Nice height. People 6'0 and over might
have close call with head clearence.
Many features in this model, including
heated seats and exterior windows and
windshield wipers. 6 speeds on the
wipers. Moonroof is huge.

Best Features

Heated Exterior windows and wipers Heated Seats Sound System Height AWD Auto Lights off when car is in "P" Moonroof is huge 2 trip counters Compass and auto diming mirror Seats fold down easily

Worst Features

Only cons are 1) Hatch difficult to close, keep getting door open signal 2) doors do not unlock automaticly when ignition is shut off and driver door doesn't unlock when flick handle, and 3) Moonroof is a two button push close.
