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.

The car has a huge trunk if traveling. Not enough leg room in back seat.

2000 Subaru Forester L

I don't have any problems with the car. I would just prefer a newer version. Subaru is a long lasting and very safe car for teenagers and adults with children. Not enough room in the back seat for taller people with long legs. Large trunk space for traveling

Hope to drive until it becomes a classic.

2000 Subaru Forester L

This car is the definition of reliability. If it ever dies I want one just like it. The electrical system could be upgraded, and there could be a chime if you leave your lights on, but other than that, it is great. Just basic maintenance will do the trick.
