Exactly, water in the air intake is more of an issue than the diff breather issue

Sorry for the bump but I just wondering what is the safe wading depth of the Forester?
Would you say this water crossing is ok and wont inflict major damage to the diffs and air intake?

Just wanted to know what limits I can use my forester to

Airstrike yes that's fine. That wasn't deep enough to worry anything

^ agree. Just make sure you know where your air intake is located and at all costs avoid getting water in it; the end result is not pretty!

A belated "Welcome aboard" Airstrike!
