Good Riddance

1999 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD


Traded in a Toyota for this model. Boy
am I sorry. First service was after a
brake recall and brakes never sounded
the same since. Blew a head gasket at
60,000 miles then 10,000 miles later
needed a full transmission
replacement. Now, I'm suspected
another head gasket problem. This
shouldn't happen on a subaru ( I was
told). Do you think I was just
unlucky? I'm trading it in and cutting
my losses- good riddance!!

Best Features

Internal storage. Fair amount of pickup for a four cyl.

Worst Features

With my experience - a 100,000 warranty would be nice! Also, how about repositioning the cup holder - nothing like cold coffee and warm soda!!
