    As far as I can tell from researching it, the Foresters are currently build in Japan.

    + 1 I still can't believe they can build a car where there's such a high percentage likelihood that you'll be replacing the head gasket. Looking at a new vehicle to replace a 2007 Outback with 140K miles and Subaru is not even on the list of options to buy.

    That's my understanding as well. When I had an '02 Legacy, I felt good about it being built in Indiana. Later, when I replaced it with a '10 Forester, I'd assumed it was made in the same place. When I learned a couple of years later that it was built in Japan I was bummed.

    Maybe I should be relieved. You guys are worrying me because I'm at 94K right now with no real issues. I was hoping to push it to 200K.

    I don't think that's true at all.

    Oh yeah, that's company malfeasance and all, but what's that have to do with what country the cars were produced in? I'm not that familiar with the case so I might just not know.
