| ||Model||Forester S|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||The size and space in the rear seat is very tight for an adult or a large child or adolescent.Subaru would do better to give up 3- 4 inches of the rear compartment,which is already very small or make the vehicle a foot longer.|
| ||General comments?||The price was a little high I thought compared to the competition but after two years I think it was worth it. It has took me through two midwest winters without problems and I am trying to decide now whether to trade for a larger SUV or keep my Subaru.Only "mechanical" problem I had was weird one.It seems that one day I didnt tighten down the gas cap enough and then the engine warning light came on. I was close to the dealer who guessed what the problem was and reset the computer after turning the gas cap two clicks.Problem solved,apparently the gas system has to work under pressure or this warning will activate. It is a great commuting Vehicle(23-25 mpg) especially in wet or snowy weather(love those heated seats and windshield package in the winter)It seems to have the legendary Subaru reliability and drives peppy ,and is easy to park. I have even carried 8ft 2 x 4's in it resting on the armrest up front and christmas trees on the roof rack.Get the S model for the larger wheels though.|
