1998 Subaru Forester L 2.3 from North America
It doesn't age well
Have replaced right wheel bearing twice within a year.
Air conditioning does not function adequately in stop-and-go traffic.
Right rear hatch arm snapped due to premature rust.
Major engine leak from blown gasket at 130 000 km.
Front passenger power window no longer functions.
Overhead clock is toast.
Wheel alignment issues abound.
This car offers safety and practicality, but be cautious of its history.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
