I have been doing DIY maintenance and repair on cars and trucks for 50 years. The first Subaru I maintained was a 2001 Forester (owned by my daughter). Since then, there have been a 2011 Forester, 2014 Impreza and my wife's 2016 Forester that needed TLC. I drive a 1998 Dodge Dakota that I owned for 20 years. Forums are a great place to add to and improve your mechanical knowledge.
