2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


What can I say, I'm practical, but I
know what gets the job done for
everything I do. It is a dream ride in
the city, on the highway, in the
mountains, desert, swamps, mud, snow,
pretty deep water, off road, scratch
the Jeep trails. I got it stuck once,
Apr. 02 CO blizzard. The snow was heavy
and wet, but I don't think it counts,
the snow was up to the top of my thigh,
I'm 5'10". Just the right amount of
horses for the size of the car. This
car will be with me for a long time,
Subarus last forever as long as you
take care of them. I'm from Alaska, I
still see Subarus driving around from
the late 70s early 80s in AK, CO and
OR. Buy one, you won't regret it.

Best Features

Love the moonroof, never seen a larger one, it's like a convertible. Heated seats rock. The seats are perfect whether your in the city or on a road trip.

Worst Features

Cupholders too shallow and too close to brake. Grille chips too easily, door handles needs to be painted for protection from sun. Needs to come w/ better tires. Need to reduce road noise at higher speeds. More torque!!!
