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


Great car, reliable, handles corners like a sedan, excellent cargo room. Sometimes wish it was a little faster. I am getting more around 21-22 mpg but I do climb a steep hill to go to work every week day. Seats were a little hard for long road trips so we re-upholstered the leather seats with 3 inches of memory foam and it has made a huge difference. Rear door speakers are laughable. Drive smooth, never had a problem. Huge moonroof.

Best Features

Nice moonroof, versatility and cargo room, handling and AWD.

Worst Features

Bigger rear speakers! Bigger rear seat room. A little more power.
