2002 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Other than a minor fuel system issue 9 days after my purchase, this car has been a great buy. The buying experience at the dealership was superb, and my service experiences have been very pleasant, if a little overpriced in the Atlanta area. The car is relatively roomy, versatile, and powerful enough that I don't really miss my 1999 Mercury Cougar V6. The OEM tires have also worn better than my Cougar's Firestones. Buying a new Forester will be a less pleasant experience because Subaru has made a lot of the standard accessories that came with mine a la carte sticker items which cost a bit more. The 2002 model, regardless, remains an excellent value.

Best Features

Standard features on the mid-level S model, including 6-disc CD changer, 16" alloy wheels, heated seats, heated windshield wiper, etc.; relatively long-lasting OEM Yokohama tires; roomy front seats; versatile cargo space with cargo tray, net, and cover

Worst Features

Cargo area 12V plug should operate while car is turned off; gas mileage is so-so(only 22-24 MPG w/ auto trans.); rear seat leg room is iffy with adults taller than 6'; cup holder locations/designs are horrible; needs power driver's seat; wind noise on door windows sometimes noisy
