2000 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD


I purchased my Subaru Forester in the summer of 2003. I live in Maine and was looking for something safe and reliable since I need my car for my work. I was in love with the car when the dealership let me take the car home overnight for a test drive. It drove wonderfully! I don't believe I had any major issues with the car in the first year that I had it. I had oil changes done as recommended and took care of it. Also my bug deflector panel thing that came with the car flew off one day while I was going 55 mph. In the summer of 2005 though I started to have issues. The car would not go anywheres until I put it into reverse first and then into drive. Once in drive I had no issues.

Best Features

Is good in tedious weather conditions.

Worst Features

Manufacturing of the vehicle. Issues noted above in the review. I agree with the poor placement of the cupholder-who wants warm soda or cold coffee depending on what your heater is set at.
