1998 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD


If you are looking for a car that will safely take you anywhere and back without breaking your back or the bank, this car will deliver without surprises. In fact, after 4 years of Canadian east-coast driving conditions, we have never been stuck in snow, ice, mud, or sand. The only negative aspects recorded to date are: an uncomfortable back seat, limited warranty relative to other brands, and overpriced parts.

Best Features

The combination of a boxer engine with an all-time all wheel drive system and anti-lock brakes makes for a ride superior to any comparable brand. Outstanding car for travelling, excellent visibility and cargo capacity.

Worst Features

- Less 'tacky' overall design - more comfortable back seats - better child seat support - Additional power outlets in front. - Better warranty on parts. - Better standard tires.
