Subaru Forester 2013 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Forester 2013 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Subaru Forester 2013: Is it using too much oil?

    All engines use oil, some use more than others, and you are expected to top them up if the level drops to the low mark. There is no rule that says a car will get from one service to the next without adding some oil, and with the extended service intervals in play today it's more likely that you will have to add oil at some point before reaching the next service. Subaru tells you it's ok, I would accept their advice.

  • Nissan X-Trail vs Subaru Forester: Which is better?

    The Nissan’s price is on the money for a private sale, although the mileage is at the top end of the range. The Subaru’s price is above the top end of the quoted value for the model, which is probably due to its very low odo reading. Generally, the one with the lower odo would be the one to go for, but when it’s double the price of the other you really have to want it to hand over the extra cash.

    Here and now the X-Trail would be the better value.

  • Subaru Forester 2011: Is it a good used buy?

    Sadly, 2011 is not one of the better years for a Subaru. The new-generation model Forester arrived in 2013 and it gets The Tick. Ironically, a Forester from 2002-2009 is a good choice.
