Great all- around car for most people. by Bill in Seattle on 06/03/2009. Trim: 2001 Subaru Forester S, Owned 9 years.
Pros: Compact size. Able to haul short to long items such as 8' boards with the seats reclined. Reliability. I brought this car in April 2000 and the only thing I have had to replaced in all these years is the battery. I had to replace items such as tires, winshield wiper blades, but that is all. Normal maintenance every 30 thousand miles at the Subaru dealer and thats it. Drives great on the highway.
Cons: The ride doesn't feel solid like the Outback. The hatchback closes with a clink instead of a solid sound. The gas mileage , 20 in town, 26 on the highway could be better. The air conditioner is only barely adequate.
Overall review: Well worth the money if you want to keep a car for 10 years.
