100K meltdown
By Paul on


2002 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Our Forester was golden for 100,000 miles, but within 1K of passing into 6 digits we started to have problems. Most were annoying little things like the clock stopped working, the compass became wildly inaccurate and the low fuel light failed to go on. There were major problems with the front wheels. The paint job seems to easily scratch.

Best Features

The AWD is a super feature and the main reason we bought the car. The car is easy to load and has a surprisingly large interior.

Worst Features

The little lights and gadgets must be more durable as should the paint job. And, of course, the front cup holder needs to be placed more conveniently.
