    Hi all, convinced myself to buy a 2001 Forester. Anything I should look
    for
    when shopping for one?
    Thanks...Rob

    Coolant leakage from external head gasket and rear wheel bearings. Some
    people have had a problem. My 2000 Forester @ 64,000 miles has been a great
    vehicle without problems. Previous owner maintaince should be documented. Ed

    A 2003?

    In the past I've bought cars at least a few years old, but I decided the
    improvements in 2003 were probably enough to warrant buying nearly new.
    Who knows? I'm sure the older ones are fine too.
