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


I researched the mini suv's and bought
a 2003 Forester. I was worried about
the lack of space, but after a year of
use, I no longer have that concern. It
really proved itself after hauling my
son and all of his stuff 800 miles away
to college. With a roof cargo carrier
from Sears and the Forester's rear
compartment loaded up, I got 28 mpg @
75 mph. It was a comfortable ride and
actually has more leg room than the
Safari mini van. The Forester is not
as large as my previous vehicles, but
then I didn't get 28 mpg with them. I
guess there are trade offs with
everything, but for a all round, do
just about anything vehicle, I am very
satisfied with my choice.

Best Features

Make the window in the rear hatch open separately from the hatch, Let the rears seat backs recline alittle bit.
