SUBARU FORESTER 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 11, 2005.SUBARU FORESTER 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . my 2005 subaru forester suddenly accelerated as i approached a stoplight. the car was in neutral, the clutch was not engaged and my foot was on the brake. the acceleration subsided after i placed the car in first gear and slightly pressed on the gas pedal moving the car forward about a foot. this sudden acceleration occurred over a dozen times in the course of 24hrs. the car was taken to the local subaru dealer where several test runs were performed as well as a monitor test. no codes showed up so i took the car for a test run with one of the service advisors and the car accelerated several times within 10-15min. i took the car for a second test run with a mechanic who believed the throttle was improperly opening. the mechanic then inspected and cleaned the pin connectors at tps and map sensors. he then road tested it several times to determine if the problem had been resolved and found no more sudden acceleration problems. it was determined that the problem most likely was a sticky throttle.the car now runs well..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 85 miles.

Subaru Forester 2005 Vehicle Speed Control Review #10119800

SUBARU FORESTER 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 04, 2005.SUBARU FORESTER 2005, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i recently (end of november, 2004) purchased a new subaru forester. when the car is started, maybe six times in the four months i have had the car, it immediately lurches into full speed the second the accelerator is touched, and sends you twenty or more feet forward (once backwards) before you can possibly brake. i have narrowly avoided several potentially fatal accidents. today i had a real accident. when i went into carter subaru this morning, they would not listen to me. told me they had never heard of such a thing ever happening to a subaru, that something that only happened once a month was impossible to check. the manager basically called me a liar and asked me to leave. it isn't just this accident, the car can be repaired, but this is a car defect that can certainly kill someone. on at least two occasions, once in grocery lot and once leaving my driveway, it was only by chance i didn't hit a pedestrian. i feel the car is unsafe and shouldn't be driven, but even more disturbing is subaru's attitude that nothing can be done, and that i am a liar. bruce mcalister.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Subaru Forester 2005 problem was reported in BOTHELL, WA.

Subaru Forester 2005 Fuel System, Gasoline Review #10561534

SUBARU FORESTER 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 24, 2014.SUBARU FORESTER 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . the morning of jan 24, 2014 my wife and i came started the car and noticed a strong gasoline smells when we started the car, turn on the heater and drove away. i immediately drove it the dealer, because the fumes whete so strong that we had the windows open without heat to minimize the smell, otherwise we could have easyli be overcome by the gas fumes. the dealer said that the fuel lines shrink due to the cold below 30 degree's thus leaking raw fuel whenever the vehicle is runing. as you can imagine this is a serious safety hazard that need to be investigated by your agency before it turns into a fatality. furthermore, it seem that previous subaru models had this issue and a recall was issued (subaru recall no. wvk-21it) i was advised by the dealer that to repair thi problem will cost an estimate of $1,340.00, which is ridiculous knowing and most likely that this is a defective(s) fuel hoses. i guess i am very lucky that no fire started. i hope that you will look into this and get back to me with a reasonable explanation, since this is a serious safety issue. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 49500 miles.

Subaru Forester 2005 Fuel/propulsion System Review #10561868

SUBARU FORESTER 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 24, 2014.SUBARU FORESTER 2005, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . on january 24th, 2014 at approximately 10:00am, my wife and i got inside my subaru forester. i started the vehicle and turned on the heater, when we both smell a strong smell of gasoline. we immediately decided to take car to the dealer, since the fumes where so overwhelming we drove with the windows open. lucky for us the dealer is a 15 minutes ride, but with the windows down and no heat to minimize the situation and the weather below 20 degrees is kind of hard. we finally made it to the dealer. the service technician told us that when the weather is below 30 degrees the fuel lines shrink, causing fuel to leak. i was taken back to know this kind of hazard was not recall by the manufacturer and that other folks are having the same problem on their subaru forester. i further learned the repairs were estimated at over $1,300.00, because they needed to replace all the fuel lines in order to stop the leak. it seems this is issue happen to vehicles from 2000-2003 based on recall (subaru recall no. wvk-21it). i believe this is a serious safety issue that has the potential to be fatal. the vehicle in this condition is a fire hazard and due to the strong fumes that can overwhelm a person to lose conscience while driving. the bottom line is that the car is not drivable under this condition. i believed that the cost of repairs should be a burden of the manufacturer and not of the owner per the resolution of the mentioned earlier by subaru's recall. as is indicative of the same problem. it will seem to me that this is a situation worthy of an investigation from dot, or is it going to wait until there is a fatality, and we go back to saying "i told you so". *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 49500 miles.

Subaru Forester 2005 Reports


I test drove a 2011 Subaru Outback yesterday at night in a very dark area with the headlights on. I could only see out of the bottom third of the windshield. The top two thirds of the windshield looked as if a black curtain had dropped down over i

I notice if I quickly accelerate/go into overdrive - front of car will hum. Do I need to have something checked out?
Thank you!

2004 forester xt, strong gas smell in the cold weather when the heat is on. They won't fix it because they "can't find it" at my dealership. Do I need a new fuel line or is there an easier fix?

Thank you for these, can find a decent review now.

My 1998 subaru forester stutters/hiccups/bucks (whatever you call it) when going uphill, and when accelerating on a straight path, can it be the transmission?

I HAVE A SUBARU FORESTER 2000 TAIL LIGHT/PLATE LIGHT/'FRONT SIGNAL LIGHT STAYS ON.ONCE FUSE IS REMOVED LIGHT GOES OUT.WHAT COULD THE PROBLEM BE?

I own a 2008 Subaru impreza, till last week i was fine, but now it is having some problem i.e it is making whining sound from  steering pump, will i have to replace the steering pump and hoe much will it cost.

Standard on all Impreza models are anti lock disc brakes, stability control, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and active front head restraints to help mitigate crash-induced whiplash

2006 Subaru outback died. Will not tke a boost. With battery cable connected there is an error code in the odometer. Does anybody know what this can be?

2007 Forester bangs into gear-been doing this mainly in cold weather but now all the time. Dealer always says not problem-it has to "warm up" and doesnt want ot deal with it.

My 2002 Impreza Outback Sport's check engine light comes on when I'm going downhill, not all the time.  Also (not all the time), if I don't downshift when coming to a stop, the car dies, not stalls, dies.  It starts right back up.  The engine l

i just wrecked my 04 wrx front impact and no air bag and seat belt locked after the impact...how do i contact some one to have this investigated?
