Subaru Forester 2004 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Forester 2004 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Subaru Forester 2004: XT hesitation issue

    Remapping the ECU might fix it, but it's not really addressing the problem. It's most likely that it's running lean for some reason. Cleaning the throttle body is a good thing to start with, checking fuel filters can work, and checking the fuel injectors would be a good move.

  • Subaru Forester 2004: What are the correct servicing intervals?

    SERVICING is usually done on the basis of kilometres travelled, but to catch those cars that don't travel as many kilometres carmakers also specify time intervals, which applies in your case. Though it may seem like over-servicing it's best to keep it up because fluids and so on deteriorate with time.

  • Towing options

    YOUR poptop would probably weigh about 1500kg when loaded, so that's the weight you need to consider when buying a vehicle. In my view it comes down to where you want to go when travelling, and what you want to do with the vehicle for the rest of the year. If you stick predominantly to the blacktop on your travels, then a regular Commodore or Falcon is probably the best way to go. Both will easily tow your poptop, are comfortable and will give you reasonable fuel consumption. An X-Trail will tow up to 2000kg if the trailer has brakes, so that will also handle your poptop. A recent experience with a 3.0-litre Subaru Outback, rated to tow 1800kg, showed that when it was towing a 1200kg camper trailer the fuel consumption rose about 30 per cent, and rose even more when towing a camper weighing close to its rated tow capacity. That said, the Outback would be a great compromise for round-town use and towing capacity.
