Hello,

 

I've connected to your forum because a couple of friends of mine have purchased Subarus recently and they normally come to me for car repair advice. I've not had the opportunity to work on many Subarus and am looking for a resource to inquire when I get stumped. Second, I'm looking to purchase an 08 Forester Sport X with 93k miles and am curious as to what I should looking for, if any, normal problem areas? Lastly, does anyone know of a local Subaru guru in the Akron/Northeast Ohio area? I have many specialists that I go to for other brands, but again, I'm not connected with anyone for Subarus. Thanks so very much for your time and information!

 

Sincerely,

-rob

you've found some subaru specialists right here!  this forum is the best in my opinion as far as technical expertise and experience.  a lot of the other forums are excellent but sometimes have to sift through inexperienced commentary too.

 

welcome aboard.  the forester sounds like the turbo variety - they have issues if they're not run on full synthetic their entire lives due to some unforgiving oil supply designs.  if you can verify full synthetic changes that's a very good thing.  otherwise, great vehicle.

 

there are some subaru enthusiasts in that area, an SVX guy comes to mind but i forget his name and he doesn't frequent this forum.  i have family in canton and go there from time to time, will be there friday actually. 

 

good luck with the subarus
