2002 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This Forester has been in daily use since we bought it new. It has had very few problems. Replacing the catalytic converter was the only signficant item so far. We also had to replace the CD player module when it started eating disks and keeping them! I was impressed that Subaru voluntarily replaced all the engine gaskets at no cost after some head gasket seepage was noted during dealer service. I for one like the placement of the cupholder, even though it puts your cup in front of the air distribution control knob. The cup is ergonomically in a good position -- up high and easy to reach. The holder looks flimsy, but it hasn't broken. A great little vehicle, easily the best I have owned.

Favorite Features

Smooth, competent operation. Winter traction.

Suggested Improvements

A little more leg room in the rear (delivered in current models).
