Asked by Dec 17, 2013 at 11:49 PM about the Subaru Forester

Question type: General

why would the transmission go out without any warning and at such low mileage of 72000.  The dealership in Ontario California did complete service maintenance 7 months prior to breakdown.

these are not for "load duty"...but more of a scientific instrument...you either put them to the test or everyday driver's ye be~

you must have been Haulin' with these...like the El Camino is more for looks than function~

contrary to it's name "forester" will have NOTHING TO DO with the forest~

...okay walkin' thru the forest after it strands you~

Well, it could be abuse or negligence. What are you attempting to imply or insinuate by mentioning that the car was serviced 7 months prior to the breakdown? Do you have the complete statistics on this failure mode for you model Subaru and how does that compare to the rest of the industry?
