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


I hesitated to write a review, because
I wanted to see how well the car held
up over time. Well, it's been a year
now, so here I am. This is the first
car I've ever purchased, and I'm very
happy with my decision. Friends still
kid me about getting a WRX, but I say
to heck with it! In the last year, I've
been in an accident (insurance
covered), and helped 2 friends moved.
My Forester still keeps on going!

Best Features

The AWD is excellent for newbie drivers in heavy snow conditions, and I love how smooth the steering wheel is. I drove a friend's Passat and can't believe I considered getting it, because the smoothness just didn't compare!

Worst Features

Better radio. 1) Make it easier to put in CDs into 6 disc changer. No more hitting the Load button! Just add in the disc; it should be automatic. 2) The radio is difficult to navigate with that crappy knob on the right side. Redesign! You can do better!
