Subarus will take you anywhere, in most all conditions.

2000 Subaru Forester

Subarus are awesome cars, especially in rural areas. They can get through most anything. When others can't make it, the Scoobie powers through. I have been driving them for over a decade and think they are a great family car. My dislikes: Bad manufacturing of head gaskets. They are guaranteed to blow. I am lucky enough to be partnered with a genius that can fix anything so that is never an issue for us, but certainly for most. Also the back end rots out quicker than most vehicles. The subframe gets rocked and needs replacing. The steel they use is not quality, but Japan is an island with no resources so it makes sense.

Amazingly reliable and safe vehicle.

2000 Subaru Forester L

Our Subaru Forester has been so good to us. The all wheel drive proved reliable in snowy flagstaff. Mine burns a bit of oil which means every couple weeks I'm putting more oil in but other than that no problems. We have driven across the country with it packed full of all our belongings with no issues. It really has tons of space in the back too. Comfort is decent, the seats kind of hug you in a nice way. We have put 229,000 miles on it and it's still going so, we are very happy with our decision to buy this workhorse.

Great car, lots of fun, not regrets.

2000 Subaru Forester L

It is a very great car. I find it extremely and very durable. The all wheel drive comes in handy with trips and outings. Plenty of space in the front seats and back seats and the trunk. The lack of space in my vehicle has never been a problem. It seats 5 comfortably. It gets roughly 300 miles on a full tank and fills up 15 gallons for every time I get gas. However, I believe the car holds 18 gallons. Overall, good quality when in good shape.
