2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I noticed very early on the car tended
to rust some. This concerned me
because of Subaru's reputation for
rust. There are several spots but the
dealer does not acknowledge a problem.
On the postive side the car handles
well and goes extremely well in snow.
I would definitely purchase another
one if the rusting situation can be
Seats the go down to make it useable
as a truck. Also the outside
temperature being a part of the
Cup holders are in a very bad spot,
shutting off access to controls for
heat and air.
