Hello everybody and those who look at this thread later. I am a new member and NOT a current Subaru owner. I AM however in the process of finding a 99-02 Forester for my son in college. I need to get information and details of things to look for in used Foresters. Why is it that I see so many have had engine replacements around the 100K mark??? Please be honest and non-bashing in your descriptions and pointers. Personal experience is better than hear-say, but I will read any posts or replies that educate me. THANKS!!
