Too many other choices to buy this again

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


This car is well thought of for some people. I don't understand why. There are too many good alternatives to this car to buy another one. Normal recommended maintenance is expensive and add in wheel bearings and head gaskets and it's like buying another car. The car is marketed for harsh weather and service, but it doesn't seem to be built for it. Before buying search on head gaskets and wheel bearings and see if you still want one.

Best Features

It's size makes it maneuverable.

Worst Features

Increase durability. Use heavy duty wheel bearings and a gasket design that doesn't fail.
