ReviewI bought my 98 Forester with great
enthusiasm. However, I had to replace
wheel bearings on two separate
occasions by 40,000 miles. I had to
replace both oil seals by 75,000 on my
Forester (and at the same mileage on my
wife's 95 Legacy), which by my research
seems to be a common and recurring
problem. Finally, I've been dealing
lately with some pulsing and squeaky
brakes, and the brake mechanics seem to
be at a loss to find the problem. The
reliability of my Forester dues not
favorably compare to my experience with
Toyota trucks, and I'll probably opt
for a Toyota or Honda the next time
Best FeaturesThe AWD has prevented several accidents, and I especially like the design of all the nifty storage spaces. The boxer engine design really seems to keep down engine vibration and noise.
Worst FeaturesFix the defects that cause the oil seal and wheel bearing problems.
