I have had my 2001 Subaru Forester since 2004 and have loved every minute of owning this car.
My Subaru is nearing 200k and sadly starting to deteriorate (rust spots, transmission, and suspicious coolant leak) so I'm looking for a new car.
I would buy another Subaru in a heart beat if I was looking for longevity.
I also love having all wheel drive.
As long as my tires are in good shape I've never had any trouble in the snow.
Aside from normal maintenance of a high mileage car I've spent little on my Subaru.
My car has also never broken down.
I swear the commercials brainwash you but really I love this car and would drive it till the day I die if I could.

I got my Forester awhile back and I am still loving it! Every time that I go out to drive it I still get excited to this day. I thought it being a 2001 it wouldn't be very good but that is the opposite! I love my Forester!

We bought our 2000 Subaru Forester in 2005. It only had 45,000 miles on it so we thought it was a great deal. A few months down the road it started showing signs of trouble-needed a new o2 sensor, then we have had an ongoing problem with the catalytic converter and have replaced it with a new one a few months ago, now it won't pass inspection-one garage says it is the gasket-another garage says it is a leaking problem and it needs to be welded (catalytic converter) also brakes also the cv boot was cracked and needed to be replaced-it is a constant drain of money-trading it in for something more reliable! Subaru is horrible!
