Good Ride for the Buck
By Dj on


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


I am a first time subbie driver.My last car which lasted 9 yrs. was a Camry. I was less than enthusiastic about the care intially. But it has been a reliable safe vechile which handles excellently in rain.The tires grip the road during a rainstrom and I'm happy to be driving my subie. Recently the dealer added a fuel enhancer an my milage has increased upto 28miles/gallon.The seats are comfortable. I bought the S-Premium with the leather option. It's a good all around town vehicle. Recently it hauled all our family "stuff" to my son's recent swim meet and had great gas milage. It's a plain jane among cars but reliable, safe and comfortable.
