Answered by CarsGuide 30 Nov 2012

Rear diffs on that model Forester are known to be a problem, even at low kays like yours, but it's important to make sure it's not a wheel bearing that's making the noise. Your mechanic should be able to identify it if it is a wheel bearing issue.

BASICALLY, the H point is the spot where your hip is located when you are sitting in the driver's seat. It can be raised by lifting the base of the seat, the height of the floor or even the whole vehicle. So cars such as the Toyota Camry have a high seat position, but a Subaru Forester has a high H point because of gravel-road suspension settings. You really need to walk around a few showrooms to see the difference.
