2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
This vehicle was nice until the
warranty expired. Within 500 miles of
the 36000 mile expiration, I had to
replace the stereo and the MAP sensor.
The lid of the center dash compartment
doesn't close right. Check engine light
started coming on in regular intervals
which mechanic said was 02 sensor and
after another 2000 miles it was running
so roughly that it needed a major tune-
up. Less than 100 miles later the coil
went on it. It is still not running
right. Mechanic is puzzled and I am
It gets great gas mileage. I almost get
30 mpg on the highway and about 20 city
driving. For a small SUV, once the
seats are folded down, it can hold
quite a bit.
Drink cup holders are poorly located
and flimsy. No vanity mirror on either
sun visor. Tilt steering doesn't tilt
enough. Cramped seating in front and
rear. Slow acceleration from dead stop.
