    Hello! Happy to be here. It appears I am 24 hours away from joining your ranks as a Forester owner! Tomorrow morning, my 2007 Forester XT Sports in Obsidian Black Pearl with 5spd will be loaded on a truck and embark on a 2500mi journey to Miami FL for my forever enjoyment! I owned a rust bucket...

    Bought the car last Halloween and have had zero issues with it until tonight, I plan on asking a question in the relevant subforum. Other than the issue I'm having currently, I have had no issues with the car (other than it telling me to take a break :P )

    Hey guys I'm really new to the car community and I am trying to attempt to buy a new cold air intake for my forester. I have not really seen anybody talk about which intake is the best "bang for your buck" or which is going to give your car the best performance gains. Does anybody have any...
  4. Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I just bought a 2007 forester with only 51k miles on it! It’s beautiful, garage kept, and looks brand new. What problems do I need to look out for/get ahead of in order to keep in this condition? Has anyone noticed any issues pertaining to this particular year? I know the timing belt needs to...
  5. Offroad Fozzies
    Hey all, Just purchased a 2018 Forester 2.5i Premium (picking it up tomorrow!). Was initially looking for a truck, but the trucks I looked at had sold before I could see them. Lucky for me, the Forester came along. I have a new job that is very remote and will require me to do some significant...

    Not a super mechanically inclined person, but i bought this 5 speed 98 forester L in VA and it’s leaking and all over the place! PLEASE HELP! The valve cover gasket was just changed, but the undercarriage is covered in fresh oil and cv axel grease since the driver side inner and outer boots are...
  7. Europe
    Evenin' all. I find myself needing to replace my daily with something a little more practical, and although I initially had my eye on the Outback 3.0 I've stumbled upon a reasonably priced and local to me Forester 2.5 (2006). And I'm impressed. Aside from the issues with the oil pick up pipe...

    A few months ago I picked up a 2019 Forester. Big shock for me as I had never been drawn to anything suby past the WRX, but I have fallen hard for this thing. The more I get into the community and drive the car itself I wonder why I avoided it so hard for so long (especially being in Seattle...

    Hello everybody. As the title says, new guy from New Jersey. First Subaru ever. Fiance and I put in the deposit and pre-ordered a new 2020 Forester Limited in Magnetite Grey. Got the call that the order was confirmed yesterday, so now the wait begins. Hope to learn a lot and contribute what...
  10. New Member Introductions
    I joined a few weeks ago to begin my research on a 2019 Forester. Today I placed a deposit for a silver/black touring with option 41. I am looking forward to becoming part of the family. I went from a 2004 Accord to a 2018 CR-v AWD which I liked when I bought but over time, short, I didn’t...
