How does the Forester compare cost wise to repair with the Rav 4?
Are you comparing two 2005 cars? If so then that is hard to say but they are probably have similar repair costs. The Subaru may have issues with head gaskets which is a known issue. Have the car checked out before you buy it.
I wouldn't buy either; the OB is a far better vehicle. ANY eleven year old vehicle can be a wallet-sucker, however; sample specifics FAR outweigh any comparative generalities, so ignore them. Good luck.
