Wish I had my outback sport
By Nathan on

Vehicle

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

Review

My first Subaru was a 98 impreza outback sport. I loved that car, except the seats. I bought the 01 forester s after my wife hydroplaned and totaled her car. I have put close to 60k miles on the car since I bought it used. In that time I have had to replace the front right wheel bearing and hub, right rear wheel bearing, left rear wheel bearing x 2, both servo boots, knock sensor, catalytic converter, and head gasket seals. The left rear wheel bearing had to be replaced the second time because the dealer apparently used a chisel to remove the bearing and scored the spindle causing it to ware prematurely. On both occasions SOA did reimburse me. I do all sch. maint. & still have prob.

Favorite Features

AWD, practicality, interior lay out

Suggested Improvements

Focus on long term reliability. That's what people think of when they hear "SUBARU".
