1998 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Have had my '98 Forester for a year/14,000. Couldn't be happier with it. Mileage is good (21/27) so is the power. The seat adjustment range is wide enough that most everyone gets comfy. It hauls much stuff and passenger room is good. I replaced the speakers it sounds better, but the system could use an upgrade. Needed good all-season tires with low noise. Still, the noise is acceptable. I'm gonna be driving this puppy for a loooong time.

Favorite Features

Performance, handling, versatility, cargo capacity and a high fun-to-drive quotient. Spend the bucks and get the "S" model. The extra features are well worth it.

Suggested Improvements

Stereo (or at least speakers), factory Yokohama tires are not great, and a fatter sway bar (not necessary but the factory unit could stand improvement).
