No 'head whacks' from us. This is a very good question that's sadly become a bit too common as of late.Thanks for the warm welcome. I expected head whacks about this post
I am looking at three Foresters tomorrow, all automatic non-turbos:
2005 XS w/ 84,000 miles
2005 XS w/ 69,000 miles
2006 X w/ 67,000 miles
The Tribecca is known for dash rattles and issues with suspension bushings and mine has both. I know the 03 Foresters have issues with head gaskets. I'm curious if there are any known things like this on the Foresters.
I was also wondering about towing, we pull a small trailer behind the Tribecca for vacations and small dump runs. I'm sure the Forester isn't rated for as much weight as the Tribecca but will a non turbo handle small loads?
Sorry to learn the reasoning behind the question, but completely understandable. I agree with the above advice regarding vehicle choices and (potential) towing needs.Thanks for the warm welcome. I expected head whacks about this post
This was not an easy decision, believe me. But, my husband lost his job several months ago so the car with the payment needs to go. I'm gutted as the Tribecca is my baby.
