1998 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

I bought my Forester in college, and have put nearly 100,000 miles on it with few problems. Only recently (at 130,000 miles) have I had to have any major work done: new clutch and tranny. The AWD system works great in snow, lots of cargo room in back, and good clearance for offroad. It also rides more like a car as opposed to the Honda SUV's.

Favorite Features

Tons of headroom in the front seats, good for people over 6' tall. Good traction in rain & snow, handles lots of cargo. Rear wiper is very handy.

Suggested Improvements

Could definitely use more legroom in the back seats. Only one cupholder on the dashboard and it blocks the climate controls.
