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

Review

Coming from a '95 Jeep Cherokee and having them both in a Minnesota winter I can say that the traction and control of the AWD system greatly outperformed teh Selec-Trac and All-Time 4WD system of the Jeep. while the Jeep slid and tailed a bit on ide and soft snow, the Subaru was easier to control and more predictable. I also shopped for a 2001 Cherokee and found that little had changed in the 5 years since Jeep had made my '95 Cherokee. The interior had been upgraded but still lacked the comfort and amenities of the Forester.

Favorite Features

The huge Sunroof (goes into the back seat), mirror tint and defrost, wiper blade de-freeze, AWD control.

Suggested Improvements

Need a v-6 option and class 3 hitch capability. Also better tires than the week Yokahama standards. They only last for 30k miles.
