Anyone else have this problem? Anyone else think Subaru's QC is the worst?
Sounds like it's time to talk to a lawyer about The Lemon Law. HTH. -Jim
The newer Subarus are bad news. I hope they get yours straightened out.
two good responses. That new engine they started in 2011 (forester) and 2012/13 on some other models has been a joke IMO. I don't understand it and am glad I have my 03 and 04 for now. There is one guy, Full_of_Regrets ? I think that's how you spell it, that got a BRAND NEW replacement engine and it is also leaking oil or having issues. And that's recent, like in the last month or two. Check around on the forums, there's a bunch of people dealing with it. You aren't alone. Hang in there!!
Well the new engine now has a rear main leak - again! Yikes!
Hey hey. Thanks for chiming in. Sorry to hear that. It's funny, I always read about the excellent quality rear mains in the earlier foresters.. It's a shame things have changed.
