Asked by Nov 02, 2015 at 12:37 AM about the 2015 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Premium

Question type: General

Has anyone succeeded in getting their money back or a replacement car from
Subaru in the last couple of years? Tell me your experience and what it took
to finally get Subaru to settle. Did you lose money on the deal or were you
made whole?  

If you have already been through this process I would love to
hear from you.

My used 2010 Tribeca had an 'apparently defective' rack & pinion for the steering. Only satisfaction is due to NY State Lemon Law which covers used vehicles (PA does not) the dealer did replace it. No vehicle replacement although very unsafe.

Update - My Dealer (not the dealer that messed up the engine but another one) says the engine is so screwed up that it has to be completely disassembled to figure out what is wrong with it.

These engines are so different than a conventional one that a mechanic, not trained by Subaru, probably will screw it up. My rack & Pinion is similar to others so that should not have been a problem, but they stripped all 4 bolts and it was just hanging. Could have wrecked!
