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


Purchased new 2002. Not a single day's problem. No recalls, reasonable insurance premium, great gas mileage, normal maintenance. Handles like a car. Quick response, great power when needed. Comfortable, roomy, reliable, lots of standard features. I still own it and feel safe with my teenagers driving it, esp. in winter snow and rain. Excellent safety rating. Far exceeded my expectations for a compact SUV. Cargo room with seats down is a blessing! It's going to take a lot to get me away from purchasing a new model. Over 35 years, this has been the BEST car I have ever owned. Cup holder placement has been improved.

Best Features

Seat warmers, AWD, stereo, rear cargo space, back seat leg room, handles like a car, sits high (great for a bad back).

Worst Features

Brakes are a bit low, but not really a problem if you know that to begin with.
