SUBARU FORESTER 2009 car safety problem was reported on Nov 29, 2009.SUBARU FORESTER 2009, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . i am writing to you today with great regret. after a lot of researching and thought, i purchased the subaru forester on august 2008 from dunning subaru ann arbor mi 48103. what drew me towards the forester was the 4 wheel drive so i was very happy to purchase this car. i was very happy with it up till a couple of months ago when i started experiencing problems. first, after returning from an oil change on may 2009, i came home and packed my car. later when i went back to the garage, the floor was filled with oil because it was dripping from the engine; i was terribly upset and contacted subaru right away. they asked me to come back and took care of it. again, on november 29th i was on my way back from dropping my daughter at wayne state university when engine suddenly just stopped. it started making some odd sounds on the passenger side and just within 5 seconds, the engine was dead. i was on highway heading towards ann arbor, which is a extremely busy highway. but to my luck, at that moment it was not crowded, and i was able to switch lanes and pull over to the curb right away. because the engine stopped so suddenly and quickly, it did not give me enough time to pull over all the way to the curb, causing my car to be half in the lane, and half on the curb, try to consider how dangerous that situation is, especially on a rainy night at 11pm. after pulling over to the curb, we waited 20 minutes(in the rainy weather) to let the engine cool down and tried restarting the car because we didn't expect something like this from subaru. unfortunately, that did not work, and nothing work. the only option we were left with was to call aaa and have the car towed. while making the calls to aaa, a cop pulled up behind us to tell us that our car was in danger because we were half in the lane and half in the curb, as i mentioned earlier, because of subaru┐s┐ engine shutting down on us so quickly and suddenly, it was not enough time to pull over completely to the curb. *tr.Mileage was 21000 miles.

SUBARU FORESTER 2009 car safety problem was reported on Mar 02, 2013.SUBARU FORESTER 2009, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with SEATS . this vehicle has not been involved in any accidents. i am of average height and weight. upon entering my vehicle at a parking lot one night, the seat bottom collapsed and fell to the floor. i was able to drive the vehicle home, but was very uncomfortable trying to remain positioned properly in the seat. closer examination of the situation performed the next morning revealed a portion of the seat frame was broken. lou fusz subaru in creve coeur, mo confirmed the broken frame and traced to failure of a spot weld. they wanted $1,000. to replace the seat bottom portion of the seat. all the controls are still functional, albeit not flawlessly due to misalignment of the structure. when asked if the frame could be welded the service adviser said this would not be possible to assess unless we agreed to pay for several hours labor to dissemble the seat so the welder could inspect the frame despite the service technician being able to see and diagnose the damage without dis-assembly. we have asked the service adviser to contact the factory representative to resolve what we believe is a safety situation. we believe the seat failure directly affects our ability to maintain the required level of comfortable control of the vehicle - especially if another portion of the seat structure fails. independent research on the subaru owners website has revealed that ours is not an isolated incident. similar failures, at approximately the same mileage point, lead us to question if there was a fault in the manufacturing process of the steel seat frame. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 48160 miles.

SUBARU FORESTER 2009 car safety problem was reported on Aug 08, 2014.SUBARU FORESTER 2009, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES . regarding: subaru recall campaign wqk-47 / nhtsa recall no. 14v-311 / july 2014. the remedy for this recall is inspection and testing of the brake lines. if there is no active brake fluid leak at the time of inspection, the lines/connections will be sprayed with anti-corrosion material. it is very clear in the documents that replacement will not be done under any other circumstances, regardless of how much rust/corrosion is already present in the brake line system. i find this absolutely appalling, and an extreme danger to unsuspecting drivers of these vehicles. these brake lines could be one day away from leaking, but if they are not leaking at the time of inspection, they will not be replaced. the owners of these vehicles should be protected from damage that has already occurred to the brake lines in the form of obvious corrosion. this remedy does not fix anything if rusted/corroded parts are going to be left in place, with most owners completely unaware of the hidden danger. i would like feedback from the government regarding this serious concern..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JF2SH64639H.
