The Subaru Forester was made with greatness in mind, and as soon as it was released it got its impressive reputation as a result of the wide variety of engines and its celebrated 4WD system. The naturally aspirated engines are known to have reached, and gone beyond, 250,000 miles. It goes without saying though that proper maintenance plays a big part in this.
