They are known for having a shimmy from @65MPH to @75MP. This can sometimes be fixed with a simple tire balancing. If that doesn't work, a "road force" balance can sometimes do the trick. Another known issue that is semi-related is the front engine mount. They go bad so frequently that they are considered a maintenance item, not a failure. Also, if the front engine mount is bad, it can contribute to the shimmy and replacing the mount can remedy the situation.

When does the timing chain need replacing?

i always recommend it at 150,000 for belts and 230,000 or so for chain. not a big concern for a non interfearance engine, but worth its weight in gold if it saves you a head job.

I have a potential 01 malibu buy and would like to know how long does motor last if for 293,000 km it was a highway commuter car and what problems i should look for. it seems great on the higway smooth but...

I would stay away from any car that has that many miles on it, that is over 150,000 miles, the engine might be fine but the steering and other components are at the end of there useful life span unless he or she has records to back up needed repairs, look for a car with less than 100,000 miles on it.

2001 subaru forester 225000 long do they typically last?

Provided the vehicle has been serviced regulary and had good quality oil and filters, theres no reason the car shouldn't get 400,000+ kms. Check its service history, and its oil consumption.
