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


We bought our Forester new from the dealer and have had it maintained consistently by the same dealer. This car has been flawless and having regular maintenance has kept us ahead of potential problems. Yeah, the original Geolander tires only went 26K, but I put ContiPremierContac on after and got about 65K out of them. We have driven it on 7-8 hour day trips and found no comfort issues since the seat reclines. We like this car so much, we are debating whether to get a new one... and with only 96k miles on the car its a tough call ! This car has served us well during northern Ohio winters.

Best Features

Leather heated seats, large heated mirrors and front windshield wiper heaters, overall utility and ease of loading cargo,6 disc AM/FM CD radio, handling, easy to drive and park, good visibility in all directions, and overall good value

Worst Features

front cupholder over the radio unit is flimsy but works, however there is the risk of liquid getting into the radio/cd area
