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


We 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 Features

Reliability 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 Features

More power, but not if it hurts fuel economy.
