Does Everything Pretty Well
By BDR on


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


I have had this car for 3 years and the
only surprise repair has been the
radiator which had a small leak. It
was fixed under warranty my cost was my
time. The car is a nice compromise of
fun, safety, comfort, looks and
performance. It is faster than the
Honda or Toyota and it can haul a fair
amount of stuff. Gas mileage is not
great and the back seat is only for
kids. Slipping dangerously on snow
requires a determined driver. I would
buy this car again.

Best Features

AWD, huge sunroof, heated seats, strong air conditioning, very good CD player, multiple air bags, excellent handling, and cargo room.

Worst Features

Feeble cup holder, so-so gas mileage, and either the V6 or WRX engine.
