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


Almost 2 years of driving my first
Subaru have sold me on the brand. This
is a great little car. One might wish
it to be a little longer, with more
legroom front and back, but I picked it
out and I knew what I was getting, so
no complaints there. My 6'2" height
just barely fits the driver's position -
a taller person would have trouble. I
have been very impressed by the smooth
quiet engine. I would say it has not
merely adequate, but "plenty" of power
for average driving. And the brakes
are the best I have ever driven. So
far, there has been not one problem
requiring dealer attention. A great car
for driving in inclement, snowy weather!
