problem #2

Forester XT 2.5L Turbo

  • Automatic transmission
  • 153,000 miles

The turbo on this vehicle had already been replaced less than 50k miles ago. On a long drive, the turbo blew up near the end of my trip. So I had to limp home with the thing barely running.

really, don't get the XT Forester, this is the second time the turbo died on the same car. I have since replaced this vehicle, it's just not worth it.
