  2. ('14-'18) 2018 - Odd starting problem - struggles to start, sputter, then dies?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    @jdac85 Thought about it, but I'd rather not take a chance with messing with the warranty since this car requires a specific oil type @gathermewool I did think about the crank position sensor; only saw it brought up a very few times but seemed to hit the mark of what might be happening with my...

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    UPDATE: So, after I took the car into the dealership, they replaced the battery (warranty). Car started well since. More of a sluggish start, but started on the first time -- regardless of temperature and location. BUT ... Last night and this morning, the same starting problem occurred. Once...

  5. ('03-'05) Rear wheel bearing need replacement $792.99 - get a newer vehicle and make car payments?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I had a 2000 Forester that, as much as I loved it, I knew I needed to sell. Something had to fixed all the time and was in the shop enough to the point of annoyance. I didn't enjoy driving it anymore because I knew I'd have to take it in for something at some point soon. Plus, there is the...
  6. ('14-'18) 2014 - Very dissapointing performance in the snow - Advice needed?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Agreed. I love these tires (currently with the SUV 8 version). I used Blizzaks WS80s before; they were okay and did the job. Nokian Hakkapelittas are more fun to drive with ... This is the way. Driving without a set of dedicated snow tires where snowfall/cold temps is a regular occurrence is...

    Member Mishaps
    I think it's great you're posting about this. Really, sometimes that's all it takes: one person to bring attention to this issue. Have you considered contacting any news agencies about your story? One thing about corporations, any corporation, is they hate bad press, as that has the potential...
  10. ('14-'18) 2018 - Odd starting problem - struggles to start, sputter, then dies?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    "It is weird it is happening only recently so something clearly changed .. Do you have an OBD2 reader that is able to show live data?" (I don't have this reader.) "Octane of fuel potentially causing problem?" I thought about these two points last night as I walked to my car to leave work (car...
  11. ('14-'18) 2018 - Odd starting problem - struggles to start, sputter, then dies?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I have just under 25K miles on her and experiencing an odd starting problem: My office is at 11,000 feet. Even with temperatures as low at -14F and as high as 32F when I leave from work to drive home, the car has started just fine. Yet, during the past week here -- and only here -- the car...

    Hi, Benny — Wondering whether you could send me a code, as I need new wiper blades.
  13. ('19+) 2019 - Tires for winter driving suggestions for new snow drivers?

    Wheels and Tires
    Winter-specific tires will not only help you with driving on the snow and braking (“braking” has been repeated throughout this thread for a reason), but will also help with avoiding all the idiots on the road who may not have snow tires I agree with the sentiment earlier about practicing in an...
  14. ('14-'18) 2015 - Factory recommended oil additive - battery terminal service - anti bacterial spray?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Why does anyone take their Subs to the dealer for regular maintenance? Just take it to a shop you trust and, when warranty issues come up, drive it to the dealership specifically for that.
  15. ('19+) 2019 - winter tires options?

    Wheels and Tires
    Depends where you live. I live in the heart of the Rockies in a valley between two 11,000+' highpoints along the interstate, and snow storms are not anything to laugh about, hitting this area with snowfall between October through May. I run dedicated snow tires, typically Nokians (Had Blizzacks...

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty

  17. ('19+) 2019 - fog light install on premium forester?

    Lighting and Electrical
    How did you replace the bulbs? I'm considering this for my '18 as well. Silly question, but curious to see how difficult/easy this process is.

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Up until the past couple of fill-ups, I had used non-TT gas since new. Just wondering how that has affected/continues to affect my car. I have just over 22,000 miles.
