Premature wheel bearing failure
By pinging_ej25 on
Vehicle2004 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI bought the car new and liked it with respect to driving and its AWD feature. What owners should be aware of is that this is a high maintenance vehicle. Parts like the wheel bearing fail prematurely (<60,000 miles) and can go on undetected for months and years and mistaken as just tire noise. Repair cost is >$450 per wheel.
Best FeaturesReal AWD not reactive ones.
Worst FeaturesLonger lasting components, e.g. bearings, CV joints, less piston slap on cold weather, pinging under load.
