Better than my Jeep Cherokee!
By jmsillers on


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


Coming from a '95 Jeep Cherokee and
having them both in a Minnesota winter I
can say that the traction and control of
the AWD system greatly outperformed teh
Selec-Trac and All-Time 4WD system of
the Jeep. while the Jeep slid and
tailed a bit on ide and soft snow, the
Subaru was easier to control and more
predictable. I also shopped for a 2001
Cherokee and found that little had
changed in the 5 years since Jeep had
made my '95 Cherokee. The interior had
been upgraded but still lacked the
comfort and amenities of the Forester.

Best Features

The huge Sunroof (goes into the back seat), mirror tint and defrost, wiper blade de-freeze, AWD control.

Worst Features

Need a v-6 option and class 3 hitch capability. Also better tires than the week Yokahama standards. They only last for 30k miles.
