1999 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

I bought my Forester new. Too many repairs needed already. New brake pads at 50,000 miles, rotors close to needing replacement. Have had to align 3 times. Expansion valve (part of AC) had to be replaced to the tune of $600. Transmission problems now x 3 cost several hundred. New tires needed around 35,000. Driver cup holder blocks view of controls. Back seats uncomfortable. Cannot fit 3 car seats on rear bench. I would not buy again.

Favorite Features

Good gas mileage, small and compact, great multipurpose. Love the compass and heated seats.

Suggested Improvements

Make vehicle wide enough for 3 car seats to fit in back. Add option for additional seating bench in cargo area. Extend the original manufacturer's warranty another 12,000 miles.
