2000 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD


Like - plenty of room for my golden retriever and his friends and for carrying furniture, supplies, etc; virtually no blind spots; original brakes lasted to 87,000 miles. Dislike - cup holder location; cheap interior fabric; weak front windshield - had to replace mine the first year; paint that chips easily; had 1 wheel-bearing go - hopefully others won't follow soon. Too noisy driving on the freeway. Other - wish they could be a little more "stylish".

Best Features

I love how easy this vehicle is to drive and I especially like the clear visual field that minimizes blind spots and enables me to manuever in tight spots. Great turning radius.

Worst Features

Move front cupholders away from air vents and audio components. Upgrade interior materials, especially the cloth and rear cargo area material. Rear area temperature controls should be mandatory. Improve sound abatement for a quieter ride.
