Engine Vibration

2011 Subaru Forester 2.5X 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Bougth my new 2011 Forester a week ago and have put about 250 miles on it. My main complain so far is the engine vibration at idle. Vibration can be felt through the driver seat when the engine is cold and then it reduces. Engine also makes noise when it is first started and then it goes away after few seconds but you can still hear a clicking noise coming from the engine like the valves are not tuned. Overall I am not very impressed with the car but willing to give it more time.

The vibration that you feel and hear when you start your car is an issue with the timing chain an there is a bulletin about it. you should bring your car in to the dealer.
