Acquired a 2003 Subaru Forester AWD.

This will allow me to gain deeper and safer access into the Aussie bush.


Currently having the timing belt and water pump replaced. Then will move APRS radio into.

Keep your eyes open for it on a summit near you.

    Re the Subaru. Get the secondary air pump checked, they all fail and are expensive to fix ($3000+).

      This appears to be a concern for Turbo models.
      Mine is a boring base model.
      I selected the 2003 and manual as by brother-inlaw is a cacable mechanic and has one of these for his wife and children. Interesting the auto turbo models were cheaper !
