Forester S, 5-speed
| ||Model||Forester S, 5-speed|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||The Yokohama tires don't grip well. The Bridgestones on the Legacy grip much better. The rear seatbelt mechanisms in the post rattle on bumps.|
| ||General comments?||This is my second Forester (I had a '98 S automatic). The watchword here is "value." You get a lot for your money. There are better SUVs, but not for the money, and I'm a tireless researcher. The Toyota RAV4, however, is not superior at any price. It has sound basic mechanical engineering, but its own fit and finish are only adequate, like the Forester's. The Toyota 4Runner, on the other hand, is indeed superior--and much more expensive. If you're the frugal sort who likes highly competent, if not always elegant, equipment, the Forester is for you.|
