I am trying to sell my grandparents 08 Forester Xt LTD. A lady just called me on the car, and asked about the "Latch System" for child seats, in the back.

She wanted to know if it is a "2 latch" or "3 latch" system.

The car is like a half hour from me, so i was wondering if someone with this model car can confirm.

She said she called Subaru, and they knew the 09 and 10' were 3 latch, but didn't know on the 08.

I didn't even know this existed until 30sec ago..lol

Any help is much appreciated.

Chronic,

My owners manual for my 07 xt sport indicates:
(should be similar for the 08)

The lower and tether anchorages are
sometimes referred to as the LATCH system
(Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren).
Your vehicle is equipped with four lower
anchorages (bars) and three upper anchorages
(tether anchorages) for accommodating
such child restraint systems.
The lower anchorages (bars) are used for
installing a child restraint system only on
the rear seat window-side seating positions.
For each window-side seating position,
two lower anchorages are provided.
Each anchor bar is located where the seat
cushion meets the seatback.

Anchorage location
1) For left seat
2) For center seat
3) For right seat
Three upper anchorages are installed on
the rear edge of the roof.
Open the cover flaps to use the tether anchorages.
