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

Review

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 frustrated.

Favorite Features

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.

Suggested Improvements

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.
