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

Review

I bought my Forester used (lease return with 37000 miles), got the 30k maitenance done and a clean bill of health, then drove halfway across the country and back. The sight lines are great, adjustable seat height is wonderful for me at 5'2". It's zippy and I like the feel of the suspension. MPG topped out at 40 (yes, 40) on the road trip with a tailwind in Wyoming; I average 28-30 mpg when driving in the city. I would buy this car again in a hearbeat.

Favorite Features

Height adjustable seat, gigantic sunroof, good sight lines. Roomy for small size and good off-road. Winter package with heated everything.

Suggested Improvements

Better lumbar support and head rest adjustment for shorter people. The stupid cupholders, which have already been fixed in later years. Wish the back window on hatchback rolled down.
