1999 Subaru Forester 4dr Wagon AWD


This is one of the best cars I've ever owned. That's saying a lot considering I've owned over 60 cars. No, it's no race car... the pick-up is moderate... BUT the capabilities, reliability, and overall maintenance cost have been lower than anything I've owned in the past. Perfect for running around town or getting to that hard to reach off road destination. The only thing lacking in my model is 4 high and low for better off-road capabilities, but it definitely works well. Tires make a BIG difference in it's handling and capabilities, and since there are so many aftermarket pieces available that's hardly an issue.

Best Features

AWD, storage, ground clearance, and all the controls are easy to use and easy to access.

Worst Features

Struts with more room for bigger tires, high-low AWD, 2 cup holders in front.
