Default What do you guys know about Foresters?

Hello, Im looking to a buy a first car and Im really interested in a Subaru Forester. But I want to know if this type of car a good car. Ive seen a few of them online for sale for around 5-7K with around 150-200 thousand miles on them. Is this a fair deal or are they that good that they hold their value even at that high of milage. I just want to know about this car before I make a decision so if someone could give me good info about this car that would be great!

Generally hold value fairly well like most subies.

Expect to replace the head gaskets if they haven't been done recently.

Typical Scubie. Great and very reliable... If it wasn't molested by a teenager.
