  1. Suspension and Handling
    Hey y'all, I'm looking for some input on how your Forester handles on back roads, and curvy mountain passes. I do most of my "fun driving" on windy back roads, either a couple miles outside the suburbs or in the mountains. My Crosstrek handles steep inclines and back country roads well at...
  2. Suspension and Handling
    Did anyone experience the rear end feels like sliding (wobbly feel) even on dry conditions whenever you hit a pothole? I also noticed that my tire wear at the rear is drastically faster than the front. P.S. Car is aligned, wheels are balanced, just changed new tires and wheel bearings. Thanks!
