Quirky but fun and reliable

Vehicle2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewOkay, so the Forester is neither car nor SUV, but it's still roomy, reliable, reasonably thrifty (compared to competitors in the compact SUV market) and is fun to drive. Okay, so being low to the ground with fat 16" tires isn't going to make it an off-roader anytime soon, but that same low to the ground trait also makes it fun to drive, and the 165 horsepower engine moves its 3,000 pounds around with reasonable alacrity.
Best FeaturesPowerful engine for its size and weight, big hatch for carrying lots of stuff (carried a dishwasher home yesterday!). Comfortable and reliable in all weather conditions.
Worst FeaturesThe cupholder situation is ridiculous -- flimsy, not enough of them, won't hold big drinks. Also could do with some styling that wasn't so, uhm, ungainly.
