2003 Subaru Forester X from North America
Not much. Normal wear and tear stuff like brakes at around 77,000 miles. Needed new passenger headlight.
This is a great little workhorse of a car. It has been very reliable, starts every morning, even in subzero. Its AWD handles all kinds of weather great, but this certainly not an off-road vehicle. Its engine doesn't have a lot of power, so passing on the highway can sometimes be tough. I have fitted two adults in the front and three child seats in the rear, however it is cramped in the rear. I have read that the newer models have more legroom in the rear.
Road noise can be quite prominent, but new tires rather than the stock tires can help. The layout of controls is quite easy to use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
