Problems with my 2004 Forester
By Aaron on


2004 Subaru Forester X AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I have an 2004 Forester and had to have in the shop 3 times for them to figure out I had a bad fuel injector head. It was fixed and works fine now. This morning I had to take it in again because the car overheats when the A/C is on. I did my research on Subarus and none of the data indicated that I would have the type of problems I'm having. I think I'm going to trade my car in for a Honda. My Subaru has become unreliable for my family.

Best Features

I enjoy the safety rating it received.

Worst Features

More power for the X model, it does not have much power when getting on the freeway and you can hear the gears shifting as it tries to go up a hill. Also, the brakes seem to be a little spongy.
