2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I observed this car in a driveway with a for sale sign. It was red and looked new. I was surprised when I found out it had 160,000 miles on it and had been left at a local dealer with blown head gaskets. The person selling it bought it from the dealer and had new head gaskets put in. I used to work on cars and I could tell it had been done. The car had a big sunroof and all wheel drive. At $4500 what could I lose? The car also had to have a new windshield put in to pass inspection. Since purchasing the car I've driven it on two long distance drives of 1,000 miles round trip. The gas mileage is excellent and everything works great. The AC is outstanding. A bargain!

Best Features

AWD, gas mileage, big sunroof, appears reliable. Easy to park, easy to drive. Interior is ok to better than average.

Worst Features

The cup holders could be improved but don't bother me. I use the slide back top on the console for a good cup holder. Other than that I have no complaints.
