2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
2002 Forester. It would not
start the day after purchase, but
dealer could find nothing wrong. Few
days later oxygen
sensor went bad, and it had to be
serviced again. The dealer (Morehart,
Durango, CO) returned it to me with a
large dent which I did not
notice immediately, so what could I do.
The gas mileage was bad at first (about
20), but have recently gotten over 30
mpg on the highway. The tires stink. I
blew a tire by running into a rock on a
dirt road at 3 mph. I was told that if
there was more than 4/32" difference in
the tread between tires, it would void
the warranty on the car. Finally, it's
UGLY with a capital U.
