S'up Subie owners! New to the brand and forum. One of the best decisions I've made was to purchase "Sue" ( a 2000 Forester S)four yrs. ago. Looking at the '09 Forester XT Limited but concerned about the engine problems I've read about. Thinking about the 2.5X limited instead...any thoughts?

There was a stop-sale on the affected VINs that had the problem, but those vehicles were taken care of. I wouldn't worry.

If you go to an XT, make sure you change the oil on schedule and it will be just as reliable as an N/A 2.5L.

I had a customer a few months ago who traded in a 2002 WRX with 193,000 miles on it- on the original turbo and clutch.
