Whow, that was nearly 3month ago. I found them on Facebook and requested quotes from them. I deleted their info some time ago.

Shes a 2010 SH X model.
It was well looked after by previous owner hence the full service history. Clean inside and out.
Have just taken ownership of her since last few months.
Planing on keeping her for another two years or so.

I stay in Bellville and got quotes for a second key for my 2.5 X MT from 2 places. Cheapest R1200 and expensive quote is R2200. Both for supply and program.

Where are these two places you talk of?

Also, how long do you plan to keep the car?

I decided to do all my own servicing since I got the car at 150Kkm. I plan to keep the car as long as I need a car, so the value of a dealer stamped book means nothing to me.

That is something that is very hard to quantify. The rest of the car's condition and age will help you decide. Is it still worth something otherwise? Then it might be worth it, even maybe a stamp from an independent shop.

Both my Forester's I serviced myself and kept track with slips and dates in a notebook that I kept in the car. In the end one was written off and the other was sold to a family member when it had already lost most of its value anyway.

Hi guys,

Got a question regarding the servicing of my car. So far it has full service history with the agent.
I got a quote from Subaru and the service is just oil change service with the air filter; brake fluid and the carbon cleaner
Im thinking of buying the spares from Subaru and doing the service myself as it seems simple enough.
My main question being is how valuable is having the service stamp in the book in terms of resale value in the future ?

Thanks

Bodywork / Re: Passenger side window
« Last post by JPC on February 18, 2020, 11:36:43 AM »
Hi all. My first post !!

I just bought a 2010 SX Auto. I noticed the passenger side window falls forward when opening, Subaru says it is a common Forester fault. Anyone else with same issue?
They also found a "oil sweat". Asked the workshop manager to check the severity and if on the valve cover or the head gasket.
The main pulley had broken of "ribs"(engine side) and a cracked timing belt cover which they are replacing this week.
Your thoughts? Any advise would be appreciated.

Cheers :)

How long ago did you buy the Forester and was it a private sale or from a dealer?

If from a dealer, I would get them to pay the repair work, if privately and it was not disclosed to you, you can try and get the seller to pay the bill or at least meet you halfway.

regards,

The newer ones have a little white arrow next to the bowser sign to indicate on which side the filler cap is.
