Good Ride for the Buck
By Dj on


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


I am a first time subbie driver.My last
car which lasted 9 yrs. was a Camry. I
was less than enthusiastic about the
care intially. But it has been a
reliable safe vechile which handles
excellently in rain.The tires grip the
road during a rainstrom and I'm happy
to be driving my subie. Recently the
dealer added a fuel enhancer an my
milage has increased upto
28miles/gallon.The seats are
comfortable. I bought the S-Premium
with the leather option. It's a good
all around town vehicle. Recently it
hauled all our family "stuff" to my
son's recent swim meet and had great
gas milage. It's a plain jane among
cars but reliable, safe and comfortable.
