Vehicle2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Leather Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewWe looked at several small SUV's
including Santa Fe, Escape, VUE,and
Honda CRV. We didn't like the "feel of
the CRV, especially the dash-mounted
shifter. We were unsure of the
reliability and fuel economy of the
others. We test-drove a 2002 Forester
and the driving position was
unsatisfactory for my wife who is 5 ft
The 2003 Forester solved all the
problems we had with the 2002 model and
it was very easy to decide on it. We
feel the dealer gave us a good
discount, considering it was the first
2003 he sold.
Best FeaturesReliability and fuel economy. We feel this vehicle is going to be low-cost of ownership. Also, we like the moon roof and driving position (sits higher than the Honda Accord it replaced).
Worst FeaturesMore power, but not if it hurts fuel economy.
