My Forester is a lemon

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

Review

We love the way the Forester handles on difficult roads (we lived in MN and ME with it). We are very saddened by the horrible maintenance issues we've had. In the last eight months (starting at about 103,000 miles) we've sunk $4700 into the car hoping to keep it going, but we're now looking at another $1800 in repairs. The killers have been that we've had to replace the clutch, the head gasket and both front axles. Now we have to replace the drive shaft. We will sadly dump our Forester, and will not buy another Subaru. The two cheap Chevys I owned before getting the Forester had better repair records than this! We're headed out to get another Honda.

Best Features

Handling in difficult road conditions.

Worst Features

More reliable engine and drive chain. And for heaven's sake, why would you put cup holders in a place that blocks my access to the heating controls?
