2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
This is my first time owning a Subaru and I was very happy with it until a few weeks ago. It was always very reliable. I have had it in all kinds of conditions from 115 degree Arizona summers to mountains in Colorado to harsh winters in Ohio and never had any major problems besides routine maintenance. I had the head gasket replaced according to the recall a year and 6 months ago. On a recent trip the head gaskets both blew, blowing up the entire engine. Check engine light was on already due to oxygen sensors and had been for 2 days. Called the dealership, there was nothing they could do as the warranty on the head gasket repair had expired 6 mos before. Very costly repair, very disappointing.
Never gotten stuck, handles well in rain/snow, comfortable, love the moonroof
Cup holders, HEAD GASKETS!!!! better customer service woulkd be nice. Subaru has not stood behind their product at all for me.
