150

Asked by GuruB4XBN Jul 13, 2019 at 05:47 AM about the 2018 Subaru Forester

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So, a new short block might help with less oil
consumption, but how does it affect resale
value of the car?

Shouldn’t have any effect on resale value, it’s just over a year old.

A replacement short block (everything below the heads and intake) will not harm resale value, and if your car has a lot of miles on it, this might even enhance value.

I don’t know much about cars, other than that I was duped into buying a $40,000 lemon, but I can’t see how it can possibly have any decent resale value, even if it does get a new short block. Is anyone having trouble with the 2019 MT Foresters yet? What about the Imprezas? Is this largely a Forester issue?

Subaru's don't seem to have a resale value problem but trade in value would be low compared to what you paid for it.

Thanks, Jim. Did buy it new. Unfortunately am in Canada. Don’t think the Lemon Law applies here.
