as you got the shitt end of the stick with those 2 particular cars. for the early FB25B engine / problematic transmission.

I would not want to keep either past the 100,000 mile mark for the engine / CVT fixes.



did you consider buying something like a 2013-14 H6 powered outback or legacy, with the last of the great 5EATs? (rare but possible to find one, but really great with limited AND eyesight )

these would be on the "best subaru ever lists" of many members here. and even if going to another brand or front wheel drive cars, nice to pull a great subaru out with snow tires on the worst days in the north east. (even if its the only one you got)

and what you got today, I think of as the worst ones made in the past 10 years. (save maybe a FB25B CVT 2011-14 forester with its crap seats to further hate)


? Want people to stop needing to ask what exact car you have? year -model -engine -trans, scroll down to "your car":
