2006 Subaru Forester X 2.5L EJ253 SOHC H-4 from North America
Not much has gone wrong, other than the power steering rack sprang a leak a month ago. The dealership I purchased it used at replaced it under the extended warranty.
Other than that, no complaints.
Excellent car. 21 MPG average, and 24 if I never rev past 3000 RPM. It's quite comfortable, and seems to have decent power.
I do have a few minor complaints about it.
1. Electronic throttle. There's a slight delay (less than a second) from when you press the accelerator pedal to when the engine starts to rev.
2. Rattles. There is a heat shield that rattles all the time, as well as some of the rear cargo area trim, and the front passenger side door trim.
Other than that, I love the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
