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


The car just went over 160,000. So far the head gaskets have had to be replaced (this was the subject of a recall) and the front axle was replaced. The check engine light has been on since 60,000. Apparently this means nothing. The Forester is excellent on the icy roads of NW Pennsylvania. It feels very well made. Overall the car has been very good and I will probably buy another one. I think I got my money's worth.

Best Features

The all wheel drive on ice and snow is superior. I think the disposition of the cargo space is good. I am always carrying skis, telescopes, furniture etc.

Worst Features

I hope they fix the head gasket problem. It would be nice if the check engine light went off.
