Hey! After some consideration I have decided to buy a 2nd gen forester as a new family car. Foresters in my price range are either plain X with 90 or so kW but I m more interested in 2.0 XT with 130kW. Problem is I haven't found many reviews about this particular engine - all turbo reviews are for 2.5xt with significantly more power. So, does anyone have experience of this 2 liter turbo model? I m not looking for road rocket, but I would like a nice meaty engine for safe overtakes etc. will this version cut it and is it more prone to problems?

Thanks :)

Hi,

I'm not sure, as I'm fairly new here, but it seems most people here are North Americans who only have access to the 2.5 XT in their Foresters. Maybe a UK board would work out better for your question, as maybe they had the 2.0 turbo there?
