What is the purpose of the 1998 Subaru Forester's spoiler? It faces down, and it appears that it would actually slow down the vehicle. :confused:

It breaks up the vortex at the rear of the car and disrupts high speed lift.

Looks. What's the purpose of a spoiler on a Honda Civic? Certainly not downforce on the rear of the car.

On a lot of older suv's that type of spoiler actually had a use. Drying the back window without a rear wiper. On the Forester it's for looks.
