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


I had a 2001 Forester L for about 6
months prior to this. The 2002 is so
much better! All the great new changes
dont make me wish for the low APR I had
on my '01.

Best Features

AWD system is fantastic. I continue to be amazed at its off-road abilities. Built quality Resale value: I lost only $3000 dollars from new purchase price on 2001 when traded in. Simple and utilitarian. Gas mileage. 2001 seats are better than 2001. Rear discs now standard.

Worst Features

I was insulted when dealership tried to place a $1,500 market value adjustment on a Subaru Forester! Paid $500 over invoice. Paid $500 under on 2001. Make sunroof available on mid-level models w/o having to go to premium package and monochromatic paint jobs.
