2000 Subaru Forester from North America
I recommend the Subaru Forester
CV Joints and boots.
Some of the seals.
I live upstate NY in the snow, and bought our 2nd Subaru after my 1988 GL 10 rotted out. The 2000 Forester doesn't seem to have the same body issues. It's got 128K and still doing well. Any problems like CV boots, some of the seals and brakes were expected. My wife takes good care of it, so it keeps going.
Awesome in the snow and is one of the best handling autos I have every owned. It's very quick and jumps out there when the light turns green. We'll keep it as long as nothing serious going wrong with it.
Both dealers we have dealt with are absolute liars. We bring it to a trusted mechanic for maintenance. I recommend the Forester.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
