Sorry to probably be another one of those guys, but I'm sort of fishing for info really.
I test drove a Forester at a garage the other day and really enjoyed it, but it was above price range at the moment, so it was more for scoping them out than anything else.
I'm interested in becoming a Forester owner, but I don't really know if there are any typical gremlins I should be looking out for? or better or worse models? Auto manual? I know about a few other cars and some typical problems, Fords struggle with DMF's etc, Auto BMW X5's have "gearboxs' for life" that have a tendency to die at 90k miles (or at least you've got an "any minute now" from then on) etc etc, but no idea on Foresters.. I'm also struggling to find many Foresters for sale in the UK, of course there are a few, but most other makes seem to have pages and pages, but not too many Foresters, is that because people keep hold of them? or do they vaporise after a certain amount of time?
Found a manual 2.5XT 55reg for £3.5k, it has got 110k miles on the clock... not sure if that's decent or no..
I'm just keen to get some knowledge really, at the moment I'm totally blind.
Thanks guys - hope to join up for real in the future (:
