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


Had need for a new vehicle in Sept and
w/ 6 month baby - looked for a "wagon"
type car ideally with awd/4wd but not a
monster suv and wanted to stay btwn 20-
25k (lower end) after endless searching
the forester fit the bill perfectly.
have it 3 weeks & already have trip to
VT on it. rides great & looks really
cool (blk)- constantly getting
compliments and it has EVERY feature &
then some. got great deal thru BJ's
auto website & dealer without much
haggle within a few hundred of dealer
invoice & dealer threw in bunch of
xtras for taking off lot (bumper
cover/rearview mirror dimmer/compass,
cargonets, roof rubstrips, etc)

Best Features

HUGE sunroof, 6cd indash w/cass, good child seat anchors, roomy cargo, rides like car w/sold awd feel, good storage compartments, wiper de-icers

Worst Features

roof rack on left/right rails needs holes/space to attach a bungee cord & easier slide mechanism for front/back crossbars.
