2001 forester S seats vs. L
I'm considering purchasing a 2001-2002 Forester, either a L or S model. I began to think I would prefer the S model, assuming it has a moonroof and a few more bells, etc. but, I am coming across differing info that either a 2001 S or later 2002 S would have side air bags. That in itself isn't much of a problem, yet, I often swap out seats in the older cars for something more supportive. So, if I buy a 2001 S and then wish to install seats from a 2004 up Forester, I might run into problems connecting the airbag seats correctly. I believe once the system senses a disconnect, it actually turns off the other airbags used.... this could be a lot of trouble...
anyone know if its the 2001 model year or the 2002 model year for S's to have side airbags?
