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


I have owned this vehicle for over an year, here are my comments and thoughts about it.

1. The Visor is too small, very inconvenient when driving with the sun on the driver side.

2. The cargo cabin window (passenger side) should have had the defroster too
(would help in seeing blind spot better).

3. Jiffy Lube can do the same service at 15,000 miles for $50, subaru dealer (John Elway Subaru) charges $250.00 for an an oil change.

4. Seats are very hard. Lumbar support is useless.

5. Temperature guage cannot display temperatures below 0 degrees (shows the number with out the minus).

6. Temperature guage does not show inside temperature (no options available).

Worst Features

1. Have an extender for the Visor. 2. Make the oil change (1st service cheaper). 3. Fix the temperature guage 4. Put a defroster on the passenger side cargo cabin window. 5. Make the seats softer (like the outback). 6. put auto dimming mirrors on all mirrors.
