Forester rocks!
By oareagle on


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


I bought a 2001 Forester new in April
2000 for my wife, and couldn't be more
pleased. It handles great, even more so
once we replaced the crappy Firestones
with some Michelin X-ones, and it has
more than enough power for conquering
other vehicles on the road. Got a five-
speed, and it's a kick to leave a BMW or
Miata at the light on a rainy day, when
the all-wheel-drive virtually eliminates
any spin. It's all-wheel-drive traction,
all good. And it's got a low center of
gravity that allows you to whip it around
curves with no worries.

Best Features

Standard all-wheel drive; fun five-speed shifter; cargo pockets and containers are all over the place. Cute-ute design belies its get-up-and-go capability.

Worst Features

Wish leather interior was an option when we bought it. It's now available on newer models.
