Wheel bearings forever
By jimbo54 on
1999 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD
Very pleased with design/concept of vehicle, however have had rear wheel bearings replaced 8 times from 25k thru 166k; have fought Subaru tooth & nail to get them to acknowledge that there might be a design problem; debating buying another Subaru product or switching to Rav 4 in near future (200k)
Perfect size and mileage; very functional; would find it hard to do without awd & man trans.
Lots of problems; fortunately have never been stranded; Subaru less than consumer friendly when problems arise.
