    Hello Everyone, I have a 2019 Forester Premium that I bought last summer. I really love it so far. I do have one issue with it though. I find the center console space to be very cramped. The cubby hole can hardly hold my phone or wallet, if I have drinks in the cupholders there is almost no...

    Hello, New to the community. Just wanted this out there so if other people had this problem they could show their dealership for warranty purposes. 2019 Forester Sport leather seat cracking on driver side. Vehicle only has a little over 30,000 miles on it. Dealership was skeptical about taking...
  3. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Help my husband forgot to close the rear gate on his 2019 forester and the battery was drained. We did a jump start and the car is fine except for the infotainment screen. It went dead. I will be on the road for the next 28 hours with no music and navigation system. What can I do

    I'm assuming this is normal but when I open the trunk it's quite dirty around the struts/hinges. It's interesting that there is a seal going around the trunk up to to the roof line, but there is no seal of any kind and quite a wide gap between the trunk and the roof. I actually compared the...

    I've had a rental car with the 360 view camera and thought it was pretty cool. Just came across this video with it installed on a 2019 Forester, but I assume it's an expensive/custom job: Has anyone come across a DIY/aftermarket solution for 360 view cameras?

    My 2019 Touring has recently developed an odd quirk. When the radio is on it will sometimes spontaneously jump to another station. If it's off it will spontaneously turn on. It isn't associated with anything obvious like speed, rough road, etc. Has anybody seen this, and what did you or a...
  9. Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    2019 Touring here: I find that the auto-dim rear view mirror and side view mirrors are VERY dark. They’re either tinted or not. There doesn’t seem to be much of an “in-between.” I even find when I’m in a dark parking garage with no headlights behind me, the mirrors tint all the way and it makes...

    Looking to purchase the sport grill for my 2019 Touring. Chrome trim with black mesh. Called the parts department but they gave me an answer I didn’t want to believe lol. They told me there was no option to swap it out on the Touring and Premium models.. I thought the front grills of all the...
  11. Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    I decided to start a new thread as to not crowd the other one this discussion was started in.. As previously stated: Love mostly everything about my new Forester except some characteristics with the adaptive cruise control (ACC)... Picture this: Cruise set at 55mph in the center lane. Go to pass...
  12. Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    I bought a 2019 Forester and I love the car, but reading some articles coming out about the 2020 Forester and the feature that my car doesn’t have is Eyesight with Lane Centering. Does anyone know if this feature can be added to the 2019 Eyesight because I look at the 2020 Forester is just the...

    Hello. I'm having some issues with my memory seat functions in my 2019 Forester. The car seems to not communicate with the memory functions at all. I am unable to program or recall position "1" or "2" , in addition the feature that moves the seat back upon entry doesn't seem to work either. I...
  14. FB25DI - 2.5L Non-Turbo Direct Injection (2019+)
    Does anyone know if the 2019 Forester has some kind of oil filtration on the PCV and EGR systems or it is still necessary to put oil catch cans? Also I have seen WRX owners run 2 oil catch cans. Does that mean they put one on the PCV and one on the EGR?
