Love this car! Waiting for a hybrid!
By Baltomd on


2001 Subaru Forester S AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Package (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Everyone hates the cup holders and back seats in this year, so no need to comment. This car has been through several accidents (2 rear ends, high impact, and one passenger side). No one hurt. 235k miles so far. Totally fun to drive, a breeze to park. Feels like an SUV and behaves like a compact. Many years of highway commuting and felt very safe. (accidents were other idiots in local traffic!). I'm sorry that the newer models are high end premium. This is the perfect car to adapt to a hybrid! Not giving this puppy up yet!

Best Features

Fun to drive. Easy to park. Good response. Safe. Good gas mileage.

Worst Features

Cup holders and bench back seat have been improved. Unfortunately newer models are longer and newest needs premium gas. I want a hybrid!
