My Subaru Forrester (2005) is
did it have this problem before you had it serviced. if not then guess what they did something wrong at the shop and need to fix there mistake. sluggish wont go away just changing the oil. if you suspect the brakes dragging. you would only need to jack up the wheels to see which one wont turn. and if a brake is dragging. it will get so hot you can feel the heat when you touch the center of the rim. might check for any vacuum leaks or if they connected the hose clamps from the air box to the intake.

The fuel consumption sounds about right for a turbo, perhaps a little high. Hwy consumption depends on how you drive. If you cruise at 100 kph, you should get around 8 L/ 100km. Round town, about 10 L / 100km.

Automatic transmission 1998 Subaru Forester. I drained the fluid and put new in. Now it is full to the top of the dip stick spout but acts like it isn't getting down to the pan.
did you drop the pan to change the filter? if you drained the fluid and you can get the stick into the tube all the way. i would say the tube is not clogged. you should know how much you took out and the trany only holds so much. check the manual for the correct type and amount. if the fluid is over full that is a problem and will need to remove some. when i add fluid i put in a couple quarts and start the car and cycle the fluid only a couple seconds 15 to 30 not mins or hours the turn off add another till i think its close to what i took out. start car cycle some more repeat till you think your close within a quart to being full. at that point you can keep the car ruuning and check the fluid and keep checking the mark on the stick. if it wont go down the tube. you may have something blocking the tube and removing the pan again or tube to see whats blocking the tube is your only option.

I have just purchased a 2004xt Forester when i
Could be several souces:
1. Check the alternator and AC belt idler bearings. Replace as needed.
2. Check the alternator itself for noise and bearing wear. Replace the belt if needed.
3. If very cold (below 0C) the power steering pump make a lot of noise for a while (30s to 2 mins) till it all warms up.
4. If the above are OK, then the next is the timing belt idler bearings.
