    Hello all, I have recently moved to Europe from the States and I was trying to figure out if I was able to switch from MPH to KMH.

    Hi there, I recently purchased a 2011 Subaru Forester and am trying to find some cheaper roof rails online. I've come across a cheaper set of Subaru roof rails taken from a 2016 model being sold on Facebook marketplace. I was just wondering if anyone knew if the roof rails from a fourth...

    So... My subaru just died, and maybe my story can help you guys in future trips. It was a sunny day, and I was returning from a climbing trip with my gf. When without notice, and without any previous shaking or leaking of anything the engine and the whole car started shaking, whitish/bluesh...

    After about a 9 week wait we finally took our Forester Wilderness home and I am loving it so far! First plan of attack is finding a hitch that works with the Wilderness since the OEM ones are basically non existent.
  5. Forester Shopping
    Hello all. I came to check out a 2008 subaru forester out in LA. The car is from Michigan so I noticed some run underneath the car. Everything checks out fine aside from that. Asking price is $4500 and I'd like to know if it's worth the cost/risk. I attached some photos of the undercarriage.
  6. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    A couple of days ago when I activated the washer, the wipers did their thing, but with no liquid. I figured the reservoir was empty, but I checked before I pulled out of the driveway and it was fine. A little way down the road I turned on the radio, and got white noise across all my FM presets...

    I'm looking to get a manual car to be my new daily and work as a long-distance (3000+ mile) road trip car, reliable and with room to sleep inside. Would a 1st/2nd gen Forester be a good choice? My main need is room to sleep and reliability, but I'll also be doing camping in campsites and...
  11. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    Currently I'm looking at the Continental TrueContact tour and the PureContact LS. Review article: Continental TrueContact tour vs PureContact LS. Our local tire store does not carry the PureContact tire, so that limit things a bit. I'm also open to other tires suggestions, such as the Michelin...
  12. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    All, I am looking for 4 replacement tires for my 2017 Forester that I plan on keeping a while. I live in upstate NY, so the winter driving is important for me (I've lived there a while and I don't want to alternate snows). I am considering these tires: BFGoodrich Advantage Control -$725-...

  15. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, I used to take my car to a good mechanic but I cannot afford the regular service for the model I currently have. As a complete beginner, is it worth learning how to change oil and the filter? Or just saving up for the service on a 2002 Forester 190,000new car? i heard on the 2002-2006...
  16. Engine and Exhaust
    Hi, I have broken the flange on my catalytic converter, a rock hit it and it broke. The exhaust is blowing, and it is very very loud. I want to get it replaced. It is very rusty too as its the original oem from 2004 so there isn't much material to weld it back together. No CEL have come up...
