  1. Australia / New Zealand
    Hi folks, Been pondering this for some time. My car is too old (2yr+) to take advantage of Subaru NZ's offer of the extended warranty, I think it's just for cars bought after Jan 1 this year. Since my last car died a sudden death on a long road trip and left me out of pocket as it had to be...
  2. Interior and Electronics
    Hi all! I just got a 2021 Forester! This is my first Subaru, and I'm super excited. That said, I kind of fell down the rabbit hole of all the different things I want to do to protect my investment, and I thought a dash cam would make sense. I've tried them in the past, but I didn't do hard...
  3. Transmission and Driveline
    I just wanted to see if any members on here have had experience with similar things to this. So I've had my 2014 Forester 2.5i Premium for a few years now and it has been great. Although it was getting up there on the miles and I had heard from others that I could run into issues with the CVT...
  4. Warranty (incl Pre-Purchase).
    I'm a new user, 5 months old, a convert from Toyota and now I'm a Forester 2021 user (first Subaru ever). Yesterday Subaru sends me classic added security 6/60,000 miles for $750. I still have 3/36,000 Bumper to Bumper and 5 years powertrain and my mileage to date is 1,405. Why do I need...
  5. Forester Shopping
    I'm down to the wire on the car. However, I can't believe all the things dealers try to tack on thinking you will not notice. Got 2 low prices 33,033 and 33,258. However the 1st car has 200 miles on it. They told me put thru recertification to recertify as new car. I called Subaru. They said it...
  6. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    My recently purchased '18 XT has 1 week left on the 36-month warranty. I wanted to have my local dealer check it over but they are booked. Are there known problems I should look for and report prior to expiry? Any common issues not covered by the 60-month warranty? Mine has the CVT and rear...
  7. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, We had our 2018 Forester in for a state inspection at a local tire & brake shop. They mentioned the right front lower ball joint needed replacement. Would this be a warranty item (3 years, 36,000 miles)? Thank you.
  8. Transmission and Driveline
    It makes me sick to my stomach to post this, but I think I may be having ANOTHER problem with a Subaru CVT. I traded in my 2016 Outback Limited with 73K miles that was showing all the signs of an impending CVT failure to buy this car, with the promise that the Subaru CVT challenges were...
  9. Transmission and Driveline
    My transmission is being fully replaced under warranty at a dealership. It sounded like a loud whirring or flapping that disappeared above 40km/h, but was loud at low speeds, especially when coming to a stop. Sound was wheel-speed-dependent, not RPM-dependent. Noise was present in D, N, and R...
  10. FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    I've got a 2014 Forester Premium with the 2.5i and CVT. I'm at 93,000 miles. It's been burning oil since day one, but has been pretty consistent. Burns "a lot" on long road trips, not too bad around town. Just did the consumption test for the first time and it failed, it burned 0.8 qt over 1900...
  11. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    I gather Luke at Stamford is no longer there. Does the forum have a new go-to person for a deal on a Subaru extended warranty?
