2001 Forester Auto
Living in Iowa, I wanted a vehicle that was utterly reliable. I did a lot of internet research back in 2000 to buy our 2001 Forester. But the real clincher was a phone call to a dealer in the upper west coast where they experience a lot of snowfall, maybe Seattle, I can't remember. But the salesman was great, he told me the police department actually bought some Subarus for patrol cars because they will go where other vehicle won't. We bought a 2001 Forester in emerald green and that winter it snowed almost every other day. I took it out in the country to hunt with (coyote calling) and it never got squirrly on the country roads on snow and ice. My wife drives it now with a rebuilt engine and it has Pirelli P4 tires, but those original Geolanders were awesome !
