1998 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Bought this car used with 96k miles on it and had high expectations. Knew other Subaru owners that swear by them. I should have read some reviews before buying as apparently this particular engine, which also rears its ugly head in other Subaru models in and around this year, has some major issues. It all started with a bad radiator cap and then led to blown head gasket and who knows what else. I'm dumping it because it isn't worth what its going to cost to repair. This was my first and last Subaru.

Favorite Features

This car will go just about anywhere...assuming the engine isn't blown up. But seriously, it eats snow and ice for breakfast.
