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


When we brought the car we were
initially happy. After about 5k miles
we noticed a problem with surging. At
10K there was a recall on the parking
rod. At 16K we had an accident as a
result of the surging problem. Struck
vehicles front and back. Complained
but Subaru does not acknowledge the
problem. NHTSA had similiar
complaints. Now we don't want to drive
the car because its not safe. I don't
recommend this car and Subaru of
America does not care about your

Best Features

Lots of pockets, AWD is great in rain,

Worst Features

Gas mileage poor, rear seats poor, needs to be a larger wagon. More driver and passenger leg room. Seats are hard.
