1999 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

Bought the car brand new, our first new car after 20 years of marriage and what a disappointment! Speedometer quit at 10,000mi, it threw a wheel bearing, had a transaxle leak and always smelled of sulphur. The last straw was when the combo switch (turn signal/lights) went out on it in the dark on the freeway. Traded it in on a 2000 Honda CRV, what a difference!

Best Features

Acceleration was good and good fuel economy.

Worst Features

Quality control, more legroom and better interior design.
