2013 Subaru Forester 2.5X PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I like a lot of things about this car but a huge problem is the very poor quality of the interior . I have had it 4 weeks and had to buy after market seat covers because the seats are so poorly sewn I thought they would not hold up to normal usage . My dog stood on the front seat console and his claws put a hole in it . The same dog rode in my Jeep for years , stood on the same thing and it never left a mark let alone made a hole . My keys scratched the plastic , the dog put his feet on the dash and it left a scratch . It's almost impossible to use the car and not damage the interior . My Chevy Truck and Jeep Cherokee have the same usage and no damage . I truly hope it is mechanically sound

I totally agree with you. I got this 2013 Subaru thinking that was a great deal but it wasn't. I always drived Honda and i just for curiosity decided to change to Subaru and it was a big desappointment. The windshield glass is a really poor quality for sure. I should check out for this small detail before i got it but that cost me almost $800.00 to fix it. Didn t notice any rock chips on my windshield and one cold morning i was warming up my car and heard this pop that ended in a little crack that started to growing and growing. I did go to see if the warranty covered and of course was a big no! Hope people think twice before get on this big 0% financial deal that turned to use in fixing here and there. Really desappointed with Subaru.
