More than OK
By Chris22 on


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


Handles great, especially in snow and
on ice though I did put on dedicated
winter tires. Replaced my Ford
Explorer due to rising gas prices.
Drive 50 miles or more per day, no
problems in over a year. Accceleration
OK, gateless shifter a plus when
getting up to speed in a hurry. One
issue, auto setting on temp controls
not very useful in extreme cold or
heat, takes too long to compensate.
Works well the rest of the time.

Best Features

Good solid feel, handles well at highway speeds, great gas milage, over 33 mpg (imperial). Great safety rating

Worst Features

Revise center console for armrest and cup holders to co-exist. Move the auto temp sensor and increase sensitivity.
