Vehicle

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

Review

Owned it for 4 years now and it's generally well designed and engineered and a solid car for the price. However, if Subaru wants to remain competitive with it's main competitors, it needs to pay attention to some interior details below and offer the little "extras" that give custormers satisfaction. And it's absolutely necessary Subaru offer a 7 passenger "sport wagon" or I will certainly be trading in for a (Acura) MDX or equivalent in 2-3 years.

Favorite Features

Peppy, reliable, great visibility, good headroom, great moonroof, roomy cargo.

Suggested Improvements

Oxygen sensor failed right after warranty costing me $300; mileage is not what is represented; interior finish is cheap and not up to par with Toyota, Nissan or Honda; junky front cupholder(none in back) block vents and radio controls; lack of compass, vanity mirror.
