The Subaru Forester is a compact crossover SUV produced by Subaru in 1997.

Scrap value for a Subaru Forester becomes relevant when the vehicle reaches the end of its life or is no longer operable. Scrapping involves extracting valuable parts and metals. Components such as the engine, transmission, and catalytic converters are removed and sold separately if they remain functional. Additionally, metals like steel and aluminum are recovered and recycled.

Subaru Forester models manufactured before 2010 tend to have low resale value. These older vehicles are primarily valued for scrap metal, making them ideal candidates for recycling. This process helps recover essential materials and supports environmental sustainability by reducing waste.
