SUBARU FORESTER 2013 car safety problem was reported on Sept 07, 2014.SUBARU FORESTER 2013, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with ENGINE . MY CAR HAS BEEN CONSUMING EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF OIL SINCE I HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM IN APRIL OF 2014 BY INDEPENDENT MECHANICS. AT THAT OIL CHANGE I HAD ABOUT A QUART OF SYBTHETIC LEFT AFTER ONLY 4500 MILES. I TOOK IT IN EARLY BECAUSE THE CAR WAS RIDING ROUGH AND THAT WAS WHEN THEY DISCOVERED THE LOW OIL LEVEL. I HAVE COME TO FIND OUT THERE IS A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST SUBARU AMERICA OVER THIS COSTLY PROBLEM. I'M TOLD BY SUBARU THAT AFTER A COMPRESSION TEST THEY WILL CHANGE THE PISTON RINGS HOWEVER I'M TOLD BY MY MECHANIC THAT THE PISTON RINGS ARE DAMAGED BY LOW OIL AND DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. THIS COMPLAINT IS PROMPTED AFTER I DISCOVERED THE HORDS OF COMPLAINTS ONLINE REGARDING SUBARU'S OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM. I FEEL THAT SUBARU IS PUTTING A BANDAID OVER THE PROBLEM AND SAFETY IS IN FACT AN ISSUE AS PEOPLE HAVE HAD COMPLETE ENGINE FAILURE AND OTHERS HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS FIXING DAMAGE TO OTHER AREAS OF THE ENGINE BECAUSE OF LOW OIL. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL. .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 28000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JF2SHABC2DH.

Subaru Forester 2013 Reviews


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?
