Lot's of little problems.
By deepsky on


1998 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD


I've had lots of small problems with
this vehicle. Oil leaks, transmission
popping out of gear, piston slap noise
from engine, all occuring immediately
after the warranty expired at 50,000
miles. All of these things take away
from the fact that this is a nice
little SUV. It handles great in the
snow and has a lot of nice little
features, although the back seat is
really too small for a rear-facing
child seat.

Best Features

A tight turning radius. Good pick-up. Terrific in the snow and rain.

Worst Features

Better quality control all the way around.
