Don't believe the hype

1999 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD


After relying on ratings such as
Consumer Reports, I stretched my budget
to buy my Forester S. What a mistake!
Between 20,000 and 60,000 miles, I've
had to replace the brakes, a head
gasket leak, and now the manual
transmission--all out of warranty. Gas
mileage has been quite poor--less than
20 highway. This is undoubtedly the one
of the most overrated cars on the
market. The design concept is great,
but with such poor reliability, what
difference does that make? Don't waste
your money and time.

Best Features

Interior cargo spaces.

Worst Features

Reliability, longer warranty, reliability, more bang for the buck, and reliability. Don't buy one.
