  2. Glass: Windows, Mirrors and Moon roofs
    Hi everyone. So, today I noticed what looks like my moonroof seal deteriorating. It's a '19 Touring that is now just barely over 3 years with 30k on the odometer. I have an ext factory warranty but I'm told it is not one of the covered items. I have already taken it to the dealer, they took...

    I really like the simple small top display screen on a 2021 Crosstrek - it's just black and white but very clear and exactly the info I need when I'm driving. Quick and easy to read. From test-driving, it seems the Forester screens don't offer the same layout and info options, as far as I can...

    Is this engine noise normal? I've been hearing something in the driver's seat while accelerating, pretty sure it's the same sound just being dulled. Will bring it to the dealer, but just wanted to see if anyone else experienced the same thing before.

    Deciding between a Crosstrek to a Forester avail here locally. The Forester is a real beaut - 2019 Jasper Green with light grey interior, but is this car too fancy for an active lifestyle?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
