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

Review

When we brought the car we were initially happy. After about 5k miles we noticed a problem with surging. At 10K there was a recall on the parking rod. At 16K we had an accident as a result of the surging problem. Struck vehicles front and back. Complained but Subaru does not acknowledge the problem. NHTSA had similiar complaints. Now we don't want to drive the car because its not safe. I don't recommend this car and Subaru of America does not care about your problems.

Favorite Features

Lots of pockets, AWD is great in rain,

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage poor, rear seats poor, needs to be a larger wagon. More driver and passenger leg room. Seats are hard.
