What's Wrong With This Picture: Only Recalling The Head Gaskets Edition

whats wrong with this picture only recalling the head gaskets edition

The use of the word “petrol” should clue you in a bit here.

Yes, it’s from India, and it was a Saab 9-2x style tie-in with the General during the period where they were invested in Fuji Heavy Industries. Our own Doug DeMuro did a post on the Chevrolet Forester a while ago, in which he praised the car’s 2.5-liter engine. Looking at this advertisement, however, I suspect that it’s actually powered by the two-liter engine that was also available. Which means that the head gaskets are probably fine.

    I am surprised about the foot of water issue. The airbox for these cars is right under the hood, and even if water gets into the intake, there is also a trap for the water before the air charge hits the filter. The fuse box is at the same level on the other side of the car. I've forded ~18" of water (enough to go over the hood moving at 10mph) with no issues in my lowered Impreza, on which the Forester is based.

    It looks just like a Subaru Forester. That bowtie on the front makes it an oxymoron.

      that's because it is a Subaru Forester with a Chevy badge.
