piston slapping Subarus
By Phil Mag on
Vehicle2003 Subaru Forester XS AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewMy Forester has the 2.5 engine that has developed the infamous PISTON SLAP which makes it sound like an old uncared for car. We service per the manual, so it IS cared for. It sounds like loud lifter noise and it doesn't go away when warm. The dealer, after several visits, says it is just normal. Guess what car I will NOT buy next time. & I'm telling everyone I know.
Best FeaturesVery unhappy camper!
Worst FeaturesDon't cheap out on the engine.
