2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
We now have 22,000 miles on the car (about 1/3 of the miles are on back roads) and we are truly happy with Forester. It is a great "all around" vehicle. My wife will be driving it most of the time, and it is nice to know that she will have the safety of AWD on our snow-packed and icy roads (a first). We have been getting about 23 mpg regardless of where and how we drive it. It would be nice if the mileage improved with age, but I can live with 23 mpg.
AWD, great manueverability, high ground clearance, versatility, it is the best "all weather" vehicle that I have owned. Great visability, good turn radius,
Not enough leg room in the back. More power would be nice. Lousy cup holders. power front seat and tilt steering would be nice.
