2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car for reliability,
however I've had problems. The front
boot on the axle broke and cost 200.00
to fix.(the dealer wanted 500.00!
The "check engine" light was on for
35,000 miles and the dealer told me
twice that it was a "bad" computer
chip. It was the catalytic converter,
which needed to be replaced (which is
why the light goes on in the first
place) These knuckleheads should have
fixed it in the first place! NOW,
my "all wheel drive" gears are frozen.
It's going to cost at least 1,000.00 to
fix at a local mechanic's place and I
don't even want to think what the
dealer would charge, they're crooks.
good gas mileage, engine has a lot of
pep, cargo space is good
