Made A Bad Choice
By RichardM on


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


Happy with my Subaru???? Not a chance.
2001 Forester, 38,000 miles and I get a
check engine light. OK, probably just a
loose gas cap, NO. Take it to the
dealer and guess what, blown head
gasket, ruined O2 sensors, ruined cats.
What gives here? I though these were
the best of breed for these kinds of
cars. I'm really upset, disappointed. I
have a habit of buying multiple copies
of a car if I like it and was just test
driving an H6 Outback last weekend.
Forester will be traded for a Hyundai
Santa Fe, I'll be buying the XG350 for
myself. Pretty sad these Subaru's.

Best Features

Cup Holders in Front, keeps the beer cold (just kidding). Lots of room for a not so big vehicle.

Worst Features

Reliability, service, Interior quality, both cup holders are broken. Stop exporting them.
