Intrusive Seat belt chime
By moi12 on
Vehicle
2012 Subaru Forester 2.5X PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
This is my partner's car and they are enjoying it VERY much. However, I'm glad I'm not the one driving it, because of the stupid seat belt chime - see below.....
Favorite Features
a well-made car - we've always, overall, had good experiences in our Subaru's
Suggested Improvements
I have driven many different cars over the last few years - personal cars, rent cars, etc - but the Forester is the ONLY one that tries to FORCE me to put on my seat belt. It NEVER stops chiming.... I wear my selt belt because I want to & know it's important, not because some machine or company is trying to FORCE me to wear it. I am responsible for my life & limb..... I end up wearing my seat belt the LEAST in our Forester... I like Subaru's overall, but the ATTITUDE behind this seat belt chime thing is offensive..... Oh - I know - it's because they love me.... but love also very much involves RESPECT.

Yah, wait till you are blindsided and your head laying out the window it just broke. Use your seat belts.
