2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I had a baby and wanted a safe vehicle. After doing much research, chose the 2001 Forester. Within the first year had problems ranging from 02 sensors, cruise control issues, paint coming off sport grille, sluggish acceleration, etc. I have thrown several thousand into repairs for this vehicle. Multiple 02 sensors, uneven tire wear (mult. sets), cup holder broke, clock went out, defrost out, head gaskets need replacing and had to replace catalytic converter and timing belt all before 110000! Gets lower than stated mileage, loud road noise, can't ever use cruise control or car starts jumping and jerking dangerously (but no dealer can replicate or figure out). DON'T BUY!!!

Favorite Features

Safety ratings, large front window, fold down rear seat, large cargo capability

Suggested Improvements

Need I say more? Extension to visor, auto dim mirrors on all, back seat wide enough for 3 carseats or boosters, cup holders and locations, carpet/fabric quality and life. EVERYTHING!!!
