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


This is the first Subaru I have
puchased.The comment I find myself
making to anyone who asks, is; I love
the car, I just wish there was a little
more leg room up front. If the drivers
front seat track would slide back a
least another inch or so, I would be
completely satisfied. It is the only
thing that comes up short for me. I am
6'1" and anyone that is any smaller
than this will probably not be
affected. In all other respects, I am a
very satisfied owner. It holds a lot
more cargo than you think with
outstanding visibility all the way
around for the driver. The auto
transmission is smooth and predictable.
The engine has great pickup and
economical as well. I typically get 26-
27 MPG.

Best Features

Standard features on the base model were excellent. Interior headroom is fantastic.

Worst Features

More front leg room for the driver. If it comes at the expense of the rear seat passenger, so be it. I rarely carry passengers in the back seat and I can easily slide the seat up to make them more comfortable for the times that I do.
