2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I have had this car for 3 years and the
only surprise repair has been the
radiator which had a small leak. It
was fixed under warranty my cost was my
time. The car is a nice compromise of
fun, safety, comfort, looks and
performance. It is faster than the
Honda or Toyota and it can haul a fair
amount of stuff. Gas mileage is not
great and the back seat is only for
kids. Slipping dangerously on snow
requires a determined driver. I would
buy this car again.
AWD, huge sunroof, heated seats, strong
air conditioning, very good CD player,
multiple air bags, excellent handling,
and cargo room.
Feeble cup holder, so-so gas mileage,
and either the V6 or WRX engine.
