2002 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Although I love my Forester, I don't

8th or 9th dealer visit because of
dead battery problems. The dealer says
it's because I don't drive enough

Just an all-around comfortable car. I
like all of the little storage nooks.
I like the handle on the inside of the
back gate for those of us who are
