1999 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Started to experience minor problems when the car reached 30,000 miles mark. The interior faded significantly, engine ran rough etc.... But the most annoying thing was the failure of the rear wheel bearing. Turned out this is the common problem for this model year. Subaru started to use Legacy bearing to correct the problem; however, it refused, thus far, to admit that it is a design flaw.

Favorite Features

All-wheel-drive in a car-like package.

Suggested Improvements

Better material for the interior. Fix the rear bearing problem by issue a recall.
