I have a 2015 Subaru Forester and occasionally it will not turn over. The dealership told me I needed a larger battery - that was in cold weather . Now it is 85 and it wont start. Any ideas?

Maybe it is just time for a new battery. I replaced the battery in my 2015 Forester this year as it was getting a little weak. How cold does it get where you are?


Remember that you have a warranty. It won't cover the battery but it should cover most everything else.


any auto parts store can check your battery for free. Subaru's batteries are not the best out there.
