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

Review

Buyer beware! Same probs as others: tires worn at 25K(replaced with 75K), service dept, hard to work with, O2 and fuel sensors failed, 16-19 mpg, body panels rusted, AWD does NOT mean off road through forests. Short back seat and slow accelleration. But overall, Forester has a great car feel, easy to handle, no blind spots, dependable in all weather, and is SAFE--like a little tank. Living in KY, I don't feel I get my money's worth, but when I travel to MI, AWD and quick heater/defroster makes all worth while as I scoot past bulky SUVs. Forester is sure-footed, dependable car/truck/wagon.

Favorite Features

AWD all the time, car-like handling, large bumpers around the perimeter, plenty of standard features, all the little storage nooks!!

Suggested Improvements

Colored turn signal panels in rear (in daylight cannot be seen very well), higher quality OEM tires.
