    In the Yahoo Forester group there's talk of an engine rattle in the XT. I
    don't yet have 2,000 miles on mine, and I'm not aware of any such rattle. I
    don't even know if this is the US 2.5L model, or the 2.0L turbo sold in
    other countries. Can anyone here shed light on this? What exactly rattles?
    What causes it or why does it happen? What's the fix? At about what mileage
    is it most likely to start showing up? Thanks. --HW

  2. I think the discussion in Yahoo Foresters is trying to work out where the
    rattle may be itself!!!

    I know in some of the past Foresters, the rattle has been in the exhaust
    shielding, but not having heard Les's rattle, it's hard to guess at....

    I have a european manual switched Forrester from 2002.
    Quite often when shifting from 2 to 3 one can hear a rattle for e few
    seconds. To me it sounds like the valves, but i know ocassional noises
    are very difficult.
