2012 Subaru Forester 2.5X PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

After having issues with my Legacy (transmission, AC, tire pressure gage, vibrations, etc) I somehow decided it was a good idea to get another Subaru. We leased a Forester, drove it roughly 35 miles and the starter, alternator, battery died. Brand new Forester, dead as a doornail. Jumping, charging... nothing but clicks which means the starter is DEAD. Leased it Saturday, now it's a Wednesday and we still have no new car... we have a small little rental car. BEWARE of Subaru, this is 2 for 2 with troubled cars... Be your own judge but just know that we have had nothing but issues with the two cars we got. We will NEVER buy another again.

Favorite Features

Exterior design is good, AWD in rough weather is what brought me back, comfy seats, decent performance

Suggested Improvements

Poor workmanship, unreliable, poor inside design, very "hollow", no real storage for little things like change, etc,
