Hi, I am looking to buy a 2nd Subaru. It is a used 2008 Subaru Forester XS. Do you guys know if it has head gasket issue or not. What else I should be looking for.
The one I am looking for has 190000 KM. or about 112000 miles. It,s for $6450 Canadian
Thanks

We can't see the car, we have no ideas what issues it may or may not have. Find a good local shop that is familiar with Subarus, take it there for a complete pre-purchase inspection. It will be money well spent. If the current owner or dealer refuses to allow an inspection that is a red flag and you should pass on this one and keep looking.
