ReviewI bought my 98 Forester with great enthusiasm. However, I had to replace wheel bearings on two separate occasions by 40,000 miles. I had to replace both oil seals by 75,000 on my Forester (and at the same mileage on my wife's 95 Legacy), which by my research seems to be a common and recurring problem. Finally, I've been dealing lately with some pulsing and squeaky brakes, and the brake mechanics seem to be at a loss to find the problem. The reliability of my Forester dues not favorably compare to my experience with Toyota trucks, and I'll probably opt for a Toyota or Honda the next time around.
Best FeaturesThe AWD has prevented several accidents, and I especially like the design of all the nifty storage spaces. The boxer engine design really seems to keep down engine vibration and noise.
Worst FeaturesFix the defects that cause the oil seal and wheel bearing problems.
