2000 Subaru Forester Wagon L 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

I purchased my 00Forester and loved it, even though it was constantly in the shop. Problem is with the rear wheel bearings they constantly go.


Favorite Features

This car handles like a Porche


Suggested Improvements

Look at the vechile history to see if it had the recalls fixed, the Oxygen sensor and the Catalyic Convertor. Also check the rear parts and make sure the balance is correct.

2000 Subaru Forester Wagon L 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

This has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. The AWD gives great handling no matter what the weather. This car goes better in snow and ice than 4x4s I have owned in the past. The engine has surprising power for a 4 cyl--I use my Subaru to pull my boat to the lake. I am sold on Subaru thanks to this car!


Favorite Features

AWD, engine has plenty of power, lots of room.


Suggested Improvements

Body molding fades, keyless entry could be redesigned

2000 Subaru Forester Wagon L 4dr Wagon AWD


Review

Bought the car as a dealer demo back in April of '00. Overall ownership experience has been great. Torquey motor with enough punch for around town driving, decent mileage and super reliability. AWD is great in inclement weather (once the sucky stock Bridgestones were replaced with Pirrelli Scorpions). Plain-Jane wrapper, but at least it doesn't look like an atheletic shoe (think RAV4).


Favorite Features

AWD, torquey motor, comfortable suspension


Suggested Improvements

More rear legroom
