1999 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

After relying on ratings such as Consumer Reports, I stretched my budget to buy my Forester S. What a mistake! Between 20,000 and 60,000 miles, I've had to replace the brakes, a head gasket leak, and now the manual transmission--all out of warranty. Gas mileage has been quite poor--less than 20 highway. This is undoubtedly the one of the most overrated cars on the market. The design concept is great, but with such poor reliability, what difference does that make? Don't waste your money and time.

Best Features

Interior cargo spaces.

Worst Features

Reliability, longer warranty, reliability, more bang for the buck, and reliability. Don't buy one.
