Just unexpectedly had to replace my 1999 Legacy (boo) and now have a new Forester 2.5i (yay). During my old car's later years I got a lot of benefit out of being able to read engine codes so I could schedule repairs properly - still have my basic reader, but can't find the port on this new car. Anyone know where it is? Thanks! (If it's in a really inconvenient location I may get one of those new ones that send the info to an app on your phone via Bluetooth.)

Thanks, I will keep looking. I guess I need to go out there with a flashlight! If anyone has time to take a picture of it with your phone and post it, I'd be appreciative.

Remember , your 99 Legacy was OBDII compliant. The 2014 is CAN Bus. So your code reader may not be compatible. But you can try it. It will just say it can't communicate or some message like that.

Also there are different CAN bus protocols. I could use 1 OBDII reader for most of the cars I service. But I have 2 CAN Bus readers. One works for most, if it doesn't, I use the other.
