solid, but needs to be improved
By dave in nyc on


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


Owned it for 4 years now and it's
generally well designed and engineered
and a solid car for the price.
However, if Subaru wants to remain
competitive with it's main competitors,
it needs to pay attention to some
interior details below and offer the
little "extras" that give custormers
satisfaction. And it's absolutely
necessary Subaru offer a 7
passenger "sport wagon" or I will
certainly be trading in for a (Acura)
MDX or equivalent in 2-3 years.

Best Features

Peppy, reliable, great visibility, good headroom, great moonroof, roomy cargo.

Worst Features

Oxygen sensor failed right after warranty costing me $300; mileage is not what is represented; interior finish is cheap and not up to par with Toyota, Nissan or Honda; junky front cupholder(none in back) block vents and radio controls; lack of compass, vanity mirror.
