The 99 Forester L is my 5th Subaru,
but first new one. I love the room for
taking my 3 girlfriends x-country
skiing. The car has no problem getting
up the mountains with a full load. It
also gets around town with comfort and
manueverability. My husband and I have
taken it on many 300 to 600 mile trips
through the mountains of the northwest
and love the performance and comfort.
engine performance is great. The car
can pull the pass through the Cascade
Mts in 5th gear.The cargo room is
great, I have hauled furniture and a
rototiller with minimal problems.
All Subarus could use more leg room in
the back seat. It would be handy to
have some way of tying the back hatch
down when hauling oversize cargo.
