Not all Subarus are reliable
By master7blaster on


2010 Subaru Forester 2.5X Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


This car has been a major disappointment, so far I had the air conditioning go out when it was 110 degrees as a bearing in the compressor seized, than just a few weeks ago my right front axle bearing went bad.
Also my rear rotors are rusted with massive grooves, my rear emergency break pads are toast so I need to get new rear breaks, rotors and new emergency breaks replaced.
The car has 44K on it and is 3 and a half years old.
I used to have a 97 Impreza Outback that had no problems for 13 years and 225K miles, only things wearing out like when they should have, not like this car.
For all the awards this car has won its been a major disappointment.
