2000 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD
Review
The Forester was the best mid-small SUV wagon from 98 to 2002, except its looks. It's forte is gravel bumpy roads, but does many things well. Quirks you need to know: 1..the manual transmission gives much better than rated mpg, I've got 25 to 27.5 mpg with all of the 200 tanks I've calculated. It's also much quicker than the AT. 2..The clutch chatters when wet. Subaru now acknowleges this for Foresters and WRX but there's no fix. 3..It can take a long time to get repair parts.
Favorite Features
Handles small to medium bumps very well. I can race any SUV or truck on bumpy winding roads. It's lighter and nimbler than all mid-sized SUVs and holds nearly as much.
Suggested Improvements
Keep accessory power on with key off. Fix the clutch chatter problem. Give the manual trans overdrive. Paint/Finish needs more scratch resistance. Reduce wind noise. Increase road clearance 1/2 to 1 inch.
