Not a bad vehicle
By BertWhiz on


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


Not familiar with the Subaru line, I
was initially skeptical of purchasing a
Forester. However, the more I drive
it, the more suprised I am at
how well it handles. What
attracted me was the AWD,
sunroof, and better gas mileage (I
traded a 2002 Trailblazer for it as
the Chevy didn't have any of those
things), and the only thing I can
complain about the Forester is, it
isn't as roomy and has a firmer
suspension. Other than that, this
subaru was an excellent decision. The
construction and paint is of
high quality. The interior is quiet.
The engine has plenty of horsepower.
And there is plenty of convenience with
controls, etc.

Best Features

All-Wheel Drive, gas mileage, HUGE sunroof, smooth ride, exterior styling, ground clearance, peppy engine, safety enhancements, stability

Worst Features

higher armrest, wider chassis, softer suspension, rear leg room, battery saver, tinted windows, more room between the steering wheel and front seat.
