the cd rom on ebay for forester tech manuals goes up to 2000. I have a 2001. What would be different about my car that wouldn't be on the cd rom? Would it still make sense for me to get the cd rom?

Don't know which CD you are referring to.. Most(not all ) of the Ebay CD manuals I have seen have been crap

I believe it was 2001 when they "freshened" the Forester a bit. Larger taillights, different grill, changed the model features around a bit (eg, I think they changed from rear drums to discs on one of the models... ) Mechanically, I'm not aware of anything that would be significantly different. 2000 and 2001 would both have the Phase II engine. The model didn't change until 2003 with the new platform.

I have no idea if the CD is any good or not.

With patience you'll be able to find pretty much anything on eBay: I've even got a FACTORY paper manual for a 2002 car (not Subaru) for 40 bucks!
But I've been looking regularly for 4 or 5 months. If 2000's out, 2001 will be available shortly, just wait.

why not just download the pdf files for YOUR car
YOURSELF? Why risk some knock-off Ebay Scam?

it's only $19.95

Of course it's the best option.
