Lot's of little problems.

Vehicle

1998 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

I've had lots of small problems with this vehicle. Oil leaks, transmission popping out of gear, piston slap noise from engine, all occuring immediately after the warranty expired at 50,000 miles. All of these things take away from the fact that this is a nice little SUV. It handles great in the snow and has a lot of nice little features, although the back seat is really too small for a rear-facing child seat.

Favorite Features

A tight turning radius. Good pick-up. Terrific in the snow and rain.

Suggested Improvements

Better quality control all the way around.
