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


We bought the car because we
wanted a small SUV and didn't like
what other car makers had to offer.
We got the S premium package,
which had many extras!!!! We added
a few things to make it sportier, like
fender flares and rear spoiler. Great
car, but when you put infant and
carseats in the back seat, it's a VERY
tight squeeze, in both the front and
back!!! Love the extras, like the
heated side mirrors and auto
dimming mirror, but what were they
thinking with the cupholders?
Awesome sound system and great
in snow and mud, a plus in

Best Features

I love the heated seats, heated mirrors, and auto dimming rear view mirror. The 6 disc indash CD changer is awesome! It just enhances the stereo system. More storage than other SUV's that are comparable in size.

Worst Features

Cupholder placement and rear seat room. We love the vehicle, but may need to upgrade to a larger SUV to accommodate two young kids. I wish Subaru made a larger one! It's a great car, but just too small for a growing family.
