2001 Subaru Forester L 2.5L H4 from North America
What did I expect?
- The clutch was replaced before I bought it.
- Replaced filters (fuel, air, oil).
I bought this car a few months ago, because I wanted a 4WD car for the winter. It had some rust on it, the engine was running rough a bit, but hey, what should I expect from a car that old? So I gave it a try.
The car had some acceleration issue, as if the engine was misfiring.
That bothered me a bit, but not too much. It handled well, it had a sporty ride, considering the size of the vehicle. I enjoyed driving around, but one problem was the fuel consumption. Also, I couldn't fill it up, since it would stall after.
And then, on Friday, it died on me on the highway. It would cost around 1000$ to repair, which I don't want to spend on this car.
In a better condition, it would have been a great car, I really enjoyed the few months I had it.
I'm not mad against Subaru since this one was definitely not well maintained.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
