1998 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD


Have had my '98 Forester for a
year/14,000. Couldn't be happier with
it. Mileage is good (21/27) so is the
power. The seat adjustment range is
wide enough that most everyone gets
comfy. It hauls much stuff and
passenger room is good. I replaced the
speakers it sounds better, but the
system could use an upgrade. Needed
good all-season tires with low noise.
Still, the noise is acceptable. I'm
gonna be driving this puppy for a
loooong time.

Best Features

Performance, handling, versatility, cargo capacity and a high fun-to-drive quotient. Spend the bucks and get the "S" model. The extra features are well worth it.

Worst Features

Stereo (or at least speakers), factory Yokohama tires are not great, and a fatter sway bar (not necessary but the factory unit could stand improvement).
