Not all I was lead to believe

Vehicle

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

Review

The right size, but some serious flaws. Emergency braking is poor due to very spongy brakes - not unique to my car, I test drove another one after a near accident and found it to be the same. Engine frequently runs rough/stalls on cool/cold (20~50F) damp mornings, but dealer can not find problem. Mileage runs from 25MPG pure hiway to 18 around town, even with light foot. Clutch has bad "judder" that comes and goes. Rear seat space is very tight.

Favorite Features

Roof rack! Great for two kayaks, very solid, (optional) factory supplied Yakima bars. Giant moonroof is awesome.
