Out to Lunch on New Forrester Purchase

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


Purchased a 2003 Subaru Forrester XS,

Biggest complaint is a horrible blind
spot on the left side. The right side
is great. I use the rearview and side
mirrors when switching to the left
lanes on the highway. As an extra
precaution I turn my head to the left
and my view is seriously hindered by
the panel that is between the side and
rear windows. It's really a dreadful
feeling as I feel as if it is "merge or
die" and I hate to solely rely on
mirrors only. Does anyone else have
this problem? If so, then how do you
overcome? Really interested in your
comments. Am seriously considering a
trade on a one-month old car. Many

Best Features

Leather, heated seats and mirrors. Sporty tires. Pretty silver color.

Worst Features

Arm Rest extension is too short and too hard. Blind spot on the left side is a challenge.
