2009 Subaru Forester. the dealer and VIN said "LL Bean Edition" but it doesnt show that badge.
We bought a 09 Forester about 8 months ago and have been very happy with this one. We had had a 1999 Forester before until it was killed in a accident and I still miss that car. We discovered that the previous owner made some strange mods. According to the VIN it's a L.L Bean model. No L.L Bean plaque on the back. They switched the preva (sp) from the right to the left side. They also didn't keep up with the recall repairs. I'm looking to get the plugs changed because power does seem to be a bit low. I googled doing it but can't do it myself like in the old forester but local garages are wanting $300 + to do it. They say it's mostly because the proper spark plugs are $35- $45 each and they have to take the engine out. Is any of this true or are they blowing smoke. I checked and the OEM plugs from the manual are about $5.00.
