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

Review

I bought this car new in late 2000. It has performed very well during that time. The 2.5 liter boxer engine provides sufficient power to maintain interstate speeds even while climbing some steep Appalachian Mtn. highways. The best feature of this car has been its utility. We've loaded, hauled, and towed many different items with the Forester ... it has a lot of cargo room for its size class. My two biggest complaints have been: 1) outside of a large city, it's difficult to find a quality garage to service the car 2) when in use, the cup holders block/prevent the use of the climate controls (I know that's picky, but after five years of ownership ... it's really annoying).

Favorite Features

Peppy engine with pretty good gas mileage. Lots of interior room for its size class.

Suggested Improvements

Better placement of front cup holders.
