Still fun to drive after a year
By BKRider on


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


After a year of ownership, I can still
say this a great vehicle. Things I
like: 1) Handling...never feels out of
control 2) 6 disc CD changer. Standard
in the S-Premium and does an admirable
job! 3) Overall space. For a smaller
family, it fits perfect 4) My neighbors
with their huge SUV's have to park
outside thir garages and scrape the ice
off their windows...ha! Okay...what I
don't like: 1) Fuel economy. Rarely
have I got over 22 MPG in mixed
driving. For that mileage, I would
expect a little more oomph...especially
up top. 2) Cramped back seats. 4 six
footers would be a squeeze. 3)
Cupholders, of course.

Best Features

Drives like a dream...nimble. S Premium standard features. HUGE sunroof.

Worst Features

A V-6 option. Would probably get the same overall gas mileage and not be as hard on the engine. Bigger back seat.
