  1. ('14-'18) 2017 - Around what RPM do you shift up in your manual 6 diesel?

    EE20 - 2.0L Diesel
    Very curious how others drive this particular beast. The 'upshift suggestion' indicator on the dash is completely useless, way too low. This is my first Diesel and so still getting used to it, a bit concerned about over-revving it but maybe it's unwarranted. I usually shift between 2-3k RPM...
  2. ('09-'13) 2008 Forester Diesel Shudder under higher RPM

    EE20 - 2.0L Diesel

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Asking for a friend- Overfilled the Diesel Forester, roughly a liter. Smoked a bit, then after a while (more than a few hours) it went away. Dash lights are now on, but otherwise it seems to run fine. I am wondering if the excess oil found an alternate route out of the engine, and as a result...
  5. 2015 Diesel Forester - YES or NO?

    Australia / New Zealand
    Hi there, I'm new here and looking for some advice. I'm currently eyeing up a 2015 Manual Forester 2.0D-L S4 and I've heard that people have had DPF troubles with short range driving in the diesel. I live in a coastal town north of Sydney so I'm not doing small distance, city driving but I'm...
