Not perfect, but close
By CarDudeMeister on


1999 Subaru Forester S 4dr Wagon AWD


I traded a Suzuki Sidekick 4-door for
this Forester, and it was everything I
missed in the Suzuki - adequate power,
comfort, features, smooth, quiet - of
course, it cost twice as much, but it
was worth it. The full time AWD is
fantastic, the ABS worked perfectly,
the seat heaters were great on ski
trips. . .in a nutshell, you can't find
a better general purpose vehicle that
combines capacity, comfort, and economy
for anywhere near this price. Oh, and
as a topper - the build quality was on
par with my last BMW - and THAT'S
saying a lot! A must buy. . .

Best Features

AWD, reclining rear seat, seat heaters, economy

Worst Features

More power (always!), more cup holders, fold the seats without removing the headrests!!!
