Bearing design problems.
by Davido from Columbus OH

We’ve own a 2003 and 2013 Foresters and both of them had extensive wheel bearing problems at around 40-60,000 miles, costing $1500 ea. Came to learn from a Subaru auto mechanic that Subarus have a design problem with bearing seals. We will not ownanother one in the future.
Everything went as planned. On time and on price. I may look to buy a new Outback soon so I will certainly give this dealer a try.

This car provides one of the best safety feature, eyesight. Driving with it always provides me with the most confidence. The AWD comes with standard configuration of this car also make your icy driving safer.
Immediate response to my phone call for help. Problem found and repair made
Feel very safe

I love my 2018 Forester. I’m only 5’ and the seats are very comfortable. Don’t really like the Navigation - can’t seem to make it work. I have 2 friends who also have a Forester, all of ours are green. Only thing negative is the rear windshield wiper. When I go through the car wash, the portion that doesn’t move, pops off. I’ve lost one and now I have to put painters tape over it to keep it in place.
Nice and smooth purchase, no high pressure anything!!!! This was a easy decision for me to make, I will be going back to this dealer when the time comes.
Very Reliable Vehicle.....but ?
December 21, 2018
Example: The gps/map system is not intuitive to easily upgrade maps! Subaru seems unable to inform customers when new maps are available? Using the Subaru app Subaru Toolbox Gen2 is not very user friendly.....a poorly created app period! Connecting to your personal devices through STARLINK is a waste of time and unreliable. Why Subaru uses this poorly designed software and not Apple Car Play, used by most other car manufacturers, is questionable! It would be truly nice to be able to link my IPhone to the Gen2 headunit display but.....no way? Seems the electronics of this car is for Android devices primarily and not Apple friendly!
Ed Troike is a really exceptional car salesman. He is very pleasant and very knowledgeable about the Subaru outback. I have bought several cars over the years including top of the line mercedes and I have not encountered a more thorough salesperson like Mr Ed Troike. I will definitely buy my next subaru from him and I will recommend any of my colleagues looking to buy a subaru to him. Ed made my purchase a really pleasant experience.

We have always driven Subarus. They are more expensive to buy then other vehicles but they are so reliable. We bought our first Subaru in1975. We drove 3 of our Subarus for 300,000 miles!
Excellent Service at Subaru in Elgin! Dan Pagnotta

I was highly pleased with my experience buying a 2019 Forester this past month. I had Dan Pagnotta as my salesman and I was very comfortable with his knowledge and demeanor. He made this purchase a great experience for me and I will definitely be back to this dealership again. I have already made referrals to my friends and family to visit when they are ready for a new car. Thank you and I love my Subaru Squeaky Toy!
In our first car-buying experience we worked with one of the salesmen at Grand, Andrew Jennings, who made the whole process a breeze. Working with Andrew felt like hanging out with your friend who just happens to sell and know a lot about cars. We played fooseball, we were treated kindly, and we walked out feeling very happy about our purchase. Thanks, Grand, and thanks, Andrew!
Purchasing my new Subaru from "Gerald" was painless and almost enjoyable, all because of my salesman Eddy Orellana. He is knowledgeable, knows his products and alway's had the right answers to my many concerns and questions and was sincerely interested in helping me throughout the process of buying a car. Thanks Eddy
The salesman Ken made the process effortless. He gave a superb presentation and cost analysis of other vehicles we were initially considering. Highly recommend Ken.
Went from always driving compact car to this SUV
by JB fun from Minneapolis, MN

I was'nt sure I would like a SUV as I always drove a compact car, but decided to try it as I am shorter and needed to see better on major freeways and roadways in the Metro area as I would have large semi's, trucks, other Suv's in the lanes surrounding me. Oh what a difference-love it that now I can actually see everything so clearly. The car is easy to get in and out. It rides and feels like a luxury car. Has all the safety features plus.
Was approached by Freddy when we came to the dealer. He was very friendly and enthusiastic. He was helpful and easy to deal with. Time spent at the dealer was shorter than I had anticipated for the purchase of a new vehicle. I absolutely love my 2019 Forester!!
They are very friendly but I don???t give 5 star because it takes time to wait a while. Almost 2 hr for oil change and rotate tiles. I made reservation to do so. If they can do a bit faster, that would be great!
i was helped by a gentleman named Xavier Miller. He was helpful by answering all my questions and getting my into a car i wanted at a reasonable price. He helped my set up my phone and waze for the Subaru and gave me tips while driving/using a Subaru! Would highly recommend!
A. Exceptionally nice car
by MarkW from Phoenix, Az

The Forester is exactly what we were looking for. Reasonably priced, very comfortable, efficient for its size, smooth driving, excellent performing. Upright seating fits a wide range of sizes and is great for tall drivers. Excellent rear seat space. Very, very, good cargo space access. The interior is well laid out. Controls are easy to reach and easy to understand. One more thing, the climate control system is fully up to handling Phoenix summer weather.
Went into the dealership on a Friday, spoke to a saleswoman named Christina. She was very professional and helped us find what we needed with our growing family. If you’re ever in need of a new/newer vehicle I would recommend going here and asking for Christina.
Great experience. Low pressure. Straight forward. Our salesperson, Herbie, was delightful to work with. Purchased the Ascent. Financing was simple and they took our $500 loyalty coupon right away. Absolutely no drama in process.
Always greatest buying experience!!! I always feel like I am a family. Mario and Narcis helped me every time! They are the reason I will always buy VW !!! If you need great price, great service and the best buying experince Autobarn Evanston is the way to go! Thank you so much Mario and Narcis!!!
