Hello from the Land of Enchantment (New Mexico, that is). Albuquerque, specifically. Anyone else here from my area?

My stepfather just gave me my first Subaru, a 2002 Forester L hand-me-down that he bought new and put nearly 220k miles on. It's a beauty!

You can see pics in my garage. (I tried to add a photo and link to my garage, but can't with such a low post count.) It's pretty much stock, except for a new head unit I installed that has Android Auto, and the accompanying USB port I put in the center console.

So far, I've done some overdue, scheduled maintenance, detailed the interior, and had my local Subaru specialist replace the timing belt et al., steering assembly, valve cover gasket, and lower control-arm bushings.

Of note, the head gasket has never been replaced, and is dry, at 220k miles. A unicorn, so my mechanic says.

So far the forum has been a great resource (especially in figuring out my headlight issue). I'm glad to be here.

Thanks,
Aaron

Hey, look! Three posts and I can link to My Garage and show you a photo!

Welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

My first Forester, an '03 X was handed down to me by my father. I passed the '03 X to my son when I moved on to an '07 FSXT.

The Google custom forum search is pretty good. :wink:

Thanks for the info! That '07 is real nice.

Truthfully, I usually just use Google directly to search the site with something like "dim headlights site:subaruforester.org"

Thank you for the complement! I actually prefer the '03 X! :icon_eek:

If you click on the search icon... I suspect you're using the forum "full" view, so it will be on the upper right of your screen. Once you click on that, the drop down menu will give you the Google custom forum search option. The Google custom forum search is pretty good! :wink:

Hey! I'm also from Albuquerque and joined the Forester club yesterday. I picked up a 2019 Forester. Pretty stoked to get it out for some adventures.
