I loved my 2003 Forester 2.5 xs. I called her "my Bluebird". I took very good care of her and she only had 92K on her. She was well equipped and had brand new tires. Then unfortunately I totaled her. Bummer. I am hoping that I may find another comparable 2003 or later and also add to the\ndiscussion. Also I am wondering if anyone knows what year that Subaru solved the interior noise\nproblem.
