2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
We've had our Forester L for about 2 years now. Overall, it's a decent vehicle. Handling is very carlike and stable, the interior is reasonably quiet, and the space and layout make it a great camping/outdoor vehicle (which is how we use it). Our main problem has been a faulty oxygen sensor that has been replaced THREE TIMES. Not an expensive fix, but is very irritating. One more and the Lemon Law takes effect. Also the rear hatch shows small rust-colored spots in the paint that the dealer claims are caused by road/brake dust. I've never seen that in any other vehicle I've owned. Otherwise it's been dependable and useful in snowy Michigan.
Favorite Features
Deceptively large cargo space w/lots of cubbies, decent power, all-weather handling.
Suggested Improvements
Chintzy interior, uncomfortable seats for extended travel, no limited-slip diff., cheap and poorly-placed cupholders. Spotty reliability (see review).
