Strange little bugger
By hboggs on


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


Originally purchased for my wife, it
became mine when larger SUV was
traded. Had only 1 problem, a leak in
the engine, which took 3 trips to fix.
No other problems. Generally a solid
build. Overall very pleased. Look
forward to keeping for many years.
Recently, I purchased a Toyota Avalon
for not many more $, much larger
vehicle, get much better gas milage,
more inexpensive by 1/3 to insure,
makes me question, in retrospect, the
Forester purchase.

Best Features

Fun to drive. Sort of like a big go cart! Plenty of room for driver and passenger and most stuff anytime. Better than big SUV.

Worst Features

Cup holder problem has been fixed. Cheap, Cheap sun visors with no light. Better fuel economy.
