Rear Wheel Bearings and Build Quality
By Bob on


2001 Subaru Forester L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased my 2001 Subaru Forester new from Carr Subaru in Beaverton Oregon. The Forester new had to have some type of additive put into the radiator just assuming from what I have read recently to keep the head gasket from leaking, the cup holders are in the wrong place, the carpet started to come loose at 3,000 miles, the gas cap door won't close and now I have had to replace both rear wheel bearings at 79,000 miles. What is next. This is the second Sabaru I have owned and the last. This Vehicle is a piece of junk. Sabaru needs to wake up just as recently the American autos have done.

Build your Vehicles with Better Quality Materials such as head gaskets, Wheel Bearings, axles and boots and please fix the location of the cup holders.
