Yet Another Buying Question


Recommended Posts

Hi. As a new member I posted this question in the New Members forum but as I imagine few people read that I'll post it here too if that's OK.


Am about to scrap my old transit and a 58 plate Forester DXc caught
my eye in the showroom.Looks in good nick and has fsh from its two
owners. mileage is 48000.


Am wondering about running costs such as a new tyre cost (bound to be
expensive compared to my old transit!) and the cost of a service.


Also is this model likely to be reliable for say, 5 6 or 7 years ?


I know these are noob questions but its many years since I owned a
"proper" car so am out of the loop as far as the basics are concerned
