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


i expected to buy an impreza wrx wagon
for its performance, but ended up with
the forester X instead. what really
helps this car stand out is its space
and utility (five people plus one bike
fit comfortably inside over a three
hour car ride), and its interior (far
superior to the impreza, finish almost
comparable to a luxury car). a little
underpowered, but can still comfortably
weave through highway traffic when
needed. nothing you can't live
without. get the pop equip pkg. also
request the armrest extension; you
won't know where to put your right arm
without it.

Best Features

interior layout and finish are phenomenal for the price. rear of car looks great. autodimming mirror is a small pleasure.

Worst Features

lose the frameless doors. rear license plate rattles when you close the fifth door. seats could be a little firmer. slight fatigue on long drives. wish i didn't have to push the lock button three times to lock all the doors and arm the security system.
