1998 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD
When I first visited our local Subaru
dealer, the salesman told me all the
right things about reliability, value,
driving safety and longevity of the
vehicles. I had asked him if they had
any used Subarus that I could look at
and he told me that once people bought
one, they did not get rid of it.
Having owned this car for a
little over two years now, I
understand what he meant.
This car is fun to drive. This car
gets me into all the places I want to
go (fishing). It has lots of storage
space in the back. I can very
comfortably carry four people.
This is the first car I've owned with
a built in CD player. Love it!
The storage in the back is great. I
keep much of my fishing stuff back
there all the time. I can lift the
back gate which covers me if it is
raining. The back seats fold down to
allow more cargo room.
The rear wiper does not spray fluid
over an area on the window. It just
runs down the center. The back window
has a slight curve near the top and
the wiper misses this all the time.
I am a less than thrilled with the
Anti-lock brakes. Perhaps that is
because I'm due for new tires.
