2003 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
I thought this car would be a great buy and at first it was. I love the way it handles, acceleration is good, gas mileage is fair. Now after owning it for not even two years, and still paying the sucker off I have not one but two count 'em two bad head gaskets, $1600 to fix, and it is a common problem. Just check msn autos reliability raitings. Bad head gaskets, it's what makes a Subaru a Subaru. Do not buy!
AWD, best AWD on the market hands down.
Aluminum heads! Are you kidding? I'm never buying a Subaru again... should've bought a Toyota.
