1999 Subaru Forester L 4dr Wagon AWD


This was second Subaru, bought 4yrs ago with 85k now has 150k on it. Dependable car great in Ct. snow storms. Headgaskets, timing belts at 104k. for $1500..Now at 150k, clutch catalytic converter, and filler pipe to gas tank at $2000 for all. No one talks about the filler tube replacement they are plagued with, all Subarus. Our 1999 legacy Gt, My wife loved it, replaced the filler tube at 110k. She was hit head on, not a scratch. Replaced it with 98 Legacy Gt, Puuu, brakes completely went. Was due for emissions engine light came on, Filler tube. 3 out 3 no way. Last Subaru, shame , Forester
is our last Subaru but is expensive to repair. Might as well own a Volvo. Its a Japanes Volvo.

Best Features

Its starts all the time and is very safe, especially in the cold snowy winter of New England.

Worst Features

Head gaskets and fuel filler tubes. Better gas mileage.
