Hey Cool Car Fans,
Here’s a “Cool Car Shot” of a 2003 Subaru Forester XS that I delivered to a CoolCarGuy.com client last month.
Jean had been in an automobile accident with her Subaru Forester and was hoping to be able to find a replacement quickly.
We located this Forester XS (limited edition) with leather, and a huge sunroof, for about the same price she had invested in her previous Forester, allowing her to get more vehicle for the money, and about half the miles. This baby only had 21,240 miles on it when we delivered it, for about the same price as vehicles with twice the miles. At $.15 – $.20 a mile for depreciation, Jean loved the savings and the added amenities.
The Subaru Forester is a very popular Colorado vehicle, especially among women. It offers great visibility and AWD technology that works well in all of Colorado’s crazy weather conditions.
Most owners love these vehicles and claim to get around 26 miles per gallon with the 2.5L, 165 horse-power, horizontally opposed 4 cylinder engine. The fuel effecient engines provide plenty of power to get up the sometimes icy Winter slopes in Colorado.
Subaru also made the 2003 in a Turbo-charged version with 220 horse-power, but at over $2.50 a gallon for gasoline most Subaru owners are happy with the standard version.
There is another good review about the crash test safety rating of the Subaru Forester XS at the NMRA website (National Roads and Motorists’ Association).
What do you think?
