Versatile Suv For Young Family. — I picked it up used for a great price. It's pretty under powered, but I wasn't looking for a sports car, so it was pretty expected. The cargo space is great, especially with the rear seats down. There are a lot of little things I"d improve, but it is 15 years old after all. Overall, I'm very happy with this vehicle.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: AWD can't be beat in the Northeast. Great cargo space in a small car. Very versatile.

Cons: Under powered by today's standards. MPG is very poor for a car of this size even with AWD.

Get One If You Live In Nd — the acceleration isn't the best but it does get up and go really good breaks and i love how it handles the only thing that likes to go wrong with these is the rear seal wich is no biggie the body is ok if you like stationwagons it gets great gas mpg if you keep the spark plugs changed every year or so and very little maintenance needs to be done with it and i really love to drive this car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: i like how it handles

Cons: its looks like a stationwagon

1999 Subaru Forester — errrr. the 2L motor was solid but did little unless it was bouncing off the rev limiter. That aside it was a great vehicle. No real issues. Did everything I asked of it and then some. would recommend to all

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Not enough power

99 Forester — Drives Great for a Econ Station Wagon. I love the AWD in the rain and snow and even the dry corners. The Apperance leaves a little something to be desired, but It gets the job done Good MPG for an AWD car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD

Cons: Looks

I Love It — Simply the best car I have ever owned. IT drive very well. Out performs many cars in its class for fuel mileage, handling, and overall quality. This car has over 200000 miles and still goes strong. The 4X4 makes it a very great car. I will drive this car until 1000000 miles and I already want another one already.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Kinda nerdy looking
