You bought a lemon. It happens with every manufacture. This review goes to show that you are some what limited when it comes to automotive knowledge. The boxer engine is not an inferior motor, it produces a lot of torque with very little effort and also remains light and can be mounted lower in the bay for better distribution and handling capabilities. I would like everyone who may read this that this is a one off issue. I have had 3 Subaru vehicles, a wrx, a legacy, and now a forester. None of them have ever burned oil or had piston slap or motor issues at all, the forester is new but the other two vehicles saw well into the 200k mile range before having a single issue. The 2011 forester non turbo auto is still a fun car, more capable in off road situations then any other small SUV in its class. Nothing can compete with Subaru AWD and quality in my opinion. I feel bad for your experience but buying a lemon does not give you the right to turn people away from the entire manufacture. Lemons happen. I bought my Subaru because i know i was buying comfort an quality.Report it
