Subaru Forester 2008: What should I be looking for in a used car?

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Nov 2019

It’s not possible to say how many km is too many, as there are a number of things that can affect engine life. It can be the way it has been driven, if it has been thrashed, if it has towed, etc., but the most important thing is servicing. Any vehicle you consider buying should come with a record of regular servicing by an experienced mechanic who would use a good quality oil. Try to find a car with around 150,000 km, which should give you 150,000-200,000 km of reliable motoring.

It might or it might go back to what the mechanic did or didn't do at the service, but there's no way to tell, so you're stuck with getting it fixed. Find a Subaru specialist and take it there if you have lost confidence in your mechanic.
