I have second thoughts.
I am looking for a reliable car on the first place and after reading forums and numerous articles it appears that Subarus got a lot of issues: bearings, head gaskets, leaks, electrical problems..... I know that head gasket and bearing problems are fixed in new models, but new owners complain about hesitation in cold weather, electrical problems, poor paint quality etc. What is it all about???? Is Subaru quality going down. My friend owns 98 Forester with 138 000 miles with no problems at all. But ON THIS FORUM I read stories when people have major problems with new Foresters.
Many of my friends drive Hondas and Toyotas, some of them got over 150 000 miles with no major issues.
Is Forester going to last that long without expensive repairs? Can anybody comment on the current issues with Foresters and rate its reliability?
I was also wondering which Subaru is more reliable - Forester 2005-2007 or Outback 2005-2007?
