1998 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD
Review
The major systems were above average in quality and reliability. My problem with the car was the electrical system. Door-open lights wouldn't turn off until the car was started. Remote locking malfunctioned. A lot of items stopped working after several years: radio, lighter, cassette, clock, rear window defroster. Checked fuses; mechanic said too expensive to trace problem. Average city/hwy. combined gas mileage (after a full tune-up) was only about 20-21 mpg. Trunk latch started to fail. Had same problem with our '92 Legacy wagon.
Favorite Features
A clock separate from the clock in radio display like most other cars. It's a shame neither worked.
Suggested Improvements
Gas mileage, wind noise, feature/accessory reliability.
