2002 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Reluctant SUV owner, but need space.
Nice features. Drive 40 miles/wk on
dirt roads for fishing. Better gas
mileage than other SUVs, but wish for
longer range (hybrid?). Drives with zip
in fast lane. Every car a compromise,
but this one does what it is supposed
to do. Hope it's as reliable as they
say, 'cause I keep 'em till they die.
Good clearance, brakes, heaters (inc.
seats and windshields).Full-size
spare.Hope it lasts two hundred
Infamous cupholder blockage. Balky
first and second gears when cold, then
fine. More leg room in rear. Better
sound in rear. Light on door panel
