ReviewI bought a 2001 Forester new in April 2000 for my wife, and couldn't be more pleased. It handles great, even more so once we replaced the crappy Firestones with some Michelin X-ones, and it has more than enough power for conquering other vehicles on the road. Got a five- speed, and it's a kick to leave a BMW or Miata at the light on a rainy day, when the all-wheel-drive virtually eliminates any spin. It's all-wheel-drive traction, all good. And it's got a low center of gravity that allows you to whip it around curves with no worries.
Best FeaturesStandard all-wheel drive; fun five-speed shifter; cargo pockets and containers are all over the place. Cute-ute design belies its get-up-and-go capability.
Worst FeaturesWish leather interior was an option when we bought it. It's now available on newer models.
