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


This is my first Subaru. From the beginning there have been no significant problems. The check engine light has come on a few times due to the gas cap not being tight. From time to time the gas gauge reading is off, but it pretty quickly resumes a normal reading. It gets 26 mph on the freeway doing 75. There have been no fit and finish problems. I avoid dealers like the plague. Change oil every 3000 miles myself and have replaced the filters when needed. I just love this car and wouldn't hesitate to buy another after the reliability I've seen so far in almost four years.

Best Features

Great sound system.

Worst Features

I'm a big guy. I wouldn't mind about two more inches of seat extension on driver's side. Wouldn't want to be the passenger behind me though!
