Engine whine

Asked by Mar 31, 2012 at 08:59 AM about the 2012 Subaru Forester

Question type: General

I love my new 2012 Forester. One thing that has become annoying is the engine whine on acceleration. I
test drove two and they both had the whine. Didn't bother me at first but now it has become old. Anyone
else have this?

I don't have a turbo. I think it's because there is only 4 gears.

Thanks for your answer. I still really like my Forester. So does my dog Cleo!
