Engine blew up 60 k
I’m not a foreign car person...but I got stuck with this thing and I tried to make the best of it..I’m a avid outdoorsman and the forester seemed like it would do well...but my engine threw a rod with 60,000 miles..I change my oil on time always and I handle all scheduled maintenance on time..the replacement engine is extremely expensive Vs an American motor...I wish I wasn’t stuck with this PoS
Multiple known problems two few recalls.
Multiple known problems two few recalls. Subaru USA is well aware of multiple problems in this vehicle, the Subaru Forrester 2013. Oil consumption is high ultimately causing engine failure. Class action lawsuits have been bought against Subaru USA regarding gaskets in this vehicle which are the reason for engine loss of oil. They paid out a Class action lawsuit to members without admission of guilt. Other vehicles which qualified for this lawsuit but not registered as a member were left with vehicles with which were not recalled for repair. Ultimately my vehicle left me stalled in the middle of the freeway after only 1200 miles since my last oil change.
