Good, but not Great
By taxguy on


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


Rides great, handles great, looks good. Handles rain and snow without a
problem and is comfortable to drive or be a front seat passanger. Has
decent amount of power (more powerful and quieter than CRV and RAV4). It
also has a lot of cargo room. Whoever designed the interior should look for a
new job. The back seat is cramped and cannot move back and forth or
recline. The drink holder is in the worst spot possible (except if they put it in
front of the instrument cluster). Also, the gas mileage, while not bad, is NOT
what it states on the sticker. Overall a great car and a great value, just wish
they would follow the CRV interior.

Best Features

The AWD is great, the ride is responsive and smooth.

Worst Features

For the love of God, please do something with the interior.
