new to Subaru, new to Forester


Recommended Posts



I have just bought a Forester 2010 XC 2D manual, and I wanted to say hi!


It's got 93,150 miles,

starts and runs very well,

it looks black to me, but the paper work says its grey...maybe I should have gone to Specsavers....


Last service was done in April 2015 at 89378 miles.

When shall I do the next service?

What shall I look for, as in possible problems?


The brake disks look a bit worn out, but it passed the MOT fine last month, and the brakes feel perfect; I'll probably replace them during this year / early next year.

Did I read somewhere that they could be upgraded to some better ones .... or it was about the calipers that can get stuck (and they can be upgraded)....or something?


So far I am really pleased with it, except the boot.

I could say I hate the boot.

Too small,

Coming from a Mercedes W124 estate, the Forester boot is not even 1/3 of my old car (or so it seems to me).

My wife says we don't really need to take the whole house with us when going somewhere....maybe she's right.
