Will never again buy a Subaru
By JK on
2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Before I bought this lemon, I had always owned Toyota vehicles. The reason I bought this was because of some good reviews in Consumer Reports for this car. I regretted my decision within a year of owning it. The engineering is really bad. Every doing simple things like changing the air filter was a chore. Problems that usually surface in Toyotas at 150K miles started occurring with this lemon at 20k miles. Brakes wearing off, check engine lights, sluggish engine performance etc. Another problem with this car is that since Subarus are not as popular as Toyotas, and also because of its idiot engineering under the hood, repair shops don't know how to service it.
Check engine light!
100K mile bumper to bumper warranty with loaner cars from the dealership.
