2002 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I love this car. I bought it new in 2002. Traded a micro Toyota for it because I was pregnant with my first child. I didn't want a mommy-mobile, but knew I would need more room. This car exceeded my expectations! Super fun to drive. Amazing handling in snow and rain. I live on a mountain and drive up a steep dirt road to get to my house. If it hadn't been for this car, I would not have made it in the winter. I am sadly selling it now to move to an even bigger car. I have 2 toddler car seats in the back, and the kids' feet are right up against the back of the front seats. Also, what seemed like a lot of cargo space before I had kids has been shrinking with each passing year.
Fun to drive, snow handling, heated seats.
Make a bigger one! Stupid cupholder placement, but I understand that has been corrected.
