What year is my Subaru Forester?

Asked by John

I've just bought a Subaru Forester second hand and in the owners manual it says MY17, but on the build plate it has 2016. Have I bought a 2016 or a 2017 question?

You actually bought both in one go, John. In much the same way as the American car industry used to do, Subaru actually releases their cars by model year or MY code generally in the August or September of the previous year. So you have a 2017-spec Forester which was built in 2016.
