2008 Subaru Forester Sports 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

When I try to start it up in the morning it is noisy and has a rough idle. The shop has a bulletin for PZEV models that says ethanol in the gas will effect the engine this way on cold starts. All gas in this area has ethanol in it. I have had a lot of cars and never seen an engine start like this every morning. Can't Subaru do better than this?

Favorite Features

AWD, stereo, gas mileage.

Suggested Improvements

If they can't design a smooth running engine get rid of the PZEV models.
