Hi

Happy to be a part of this Subaru community!

I own a Subaru Forester 2.0 from 2009, however, I've no idea which kind of model it is and my curiosity is nearly killing me! I looked several so-called "VIN decoders", but it seems that on positions where you'd expect numbers, I've letter.

The VIN number of my Subaru is JF1SHDLza39G045790, the color is Topaz Gold, and the car has black plastic wheel wells, which I've not seen a lot here in Denmark

Can anyone please point me in the right direction whether I've a X/XT etc.?

Best regards,
Mathias

Recheck the VIN number to insure it is correct

Post a photo of under the bonnet and we'll tell you if you have a turbo or non turbo engine.

I would expect to see some numbers, not letters after SH part in the VIN
The last 4 digits of a 16 digit VIN are individual to your own vehicle so you might want to delete them from a public forum.

Looks like you have a 2009 2.0 turbo Diseasal Manual.

So you don't have an XT since those are Petrol/Gasoline Turbo only.

Not sure on the trim level. I guess seeing the interior would give more clues if you have no badge on the rear hatch. Although I guess you could have a local market special edition like the Hunter Edition in Germany only for example.
