2000 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

It's really been a nightmare on problems coming up. I owned the car until 72,000 miles. I had to replace 5 wheel bearings with no sign of a fix. I had to replace the clutch/flywheel/pressure plate around 50k milesfo $1500. Both of these problems are well documented. Good news is that the cluch problem is supposed to be fixed now. That chattering sound is not normal. Mine went bad. I got bad support from subaru for the problems. It's really been a thorn in my side. My gas mileage was around 21 mpg. The stock tires (bridgestones duelers) wear really poorly. The cheaper brands work better. The windshield is also fragile, chipping easily.

Best Features

Sufficient horses (160Hp). The handling was pretty good.

Worst Features

Wheelbearings, clutch, gas mileage (related to O2 sensor?), tire wear, and customer service.
