  1. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    Just did the 6000 mile Oil Change and Tire Rotation the other night. Rotated the 5th tire in like manual says to do. Now the TPMS dash light is on and there are no tire pressure readings in the Menu Screen. Tried doing a few of the maintenance screen resets and have driven for at least 15 miles...

    After about a 9 week wait we finally took our Forester Wilderness home and I am loving it so far! First plan of attack is finding a hitch that works with the Wilderness since the OEM ones are basically non existent.
  3. Utility and Protection
    Anyone been able to figure out the trailer hitch for the 2022. So far it has not showed up anywhere. Existing hitch doesn't show as 2022 compatible and both the parts site and the build site don't show an alternative. The existing hitch is only rated for 1,500 lbs so it makes sense they would...
  4. Lighting and Electrical
    I want to get some off-road lights rigged up on my Wilderness, but am having trouble coming up with a good mounting plan. Anyone mounted anything other than ditch lights on their SK? I have been searching in vain for a grille mounting solution, or even a way to mount a light bar in the small...
  5. Towing and Hauling
    I just ordered my forester and want to add towing package so I can haul my 6x8 jumping jack camper, it has 2" receiver so wondering if I should get dealer tow package and use adapter up to 2" or go aftermarket? I don't want to lose a bunch of ground clearance with having an aftermarket one...
  6. Utility and Protection
    Hi there, I am new. We just ordered our 2022 Forester Wilderness. Until it arrives we want to purchase a roof top tent. I can't find any measurements on the railing distance or the roof line. We need a big 3 or 4 person roof top tent, but can't find any information if it will fit. Any ideas...
  7. Forester Shopping
    I didn't see this thread specifically on here, but I have seen several folks mention briefly why they did or did not buy a Wilderness spec model. So I figured I would put this out there and see what folks say. We got the Wilderness spec for 2 main reasons: The Geyser Blue color and the added...

    Picked up my 22 Wilderness yesterday. It was supposed to show up on 2/21 but got a surprise call that it was in! :love: Ordered the Pearl White that really shows off the body lines and cladding. Very, very happy with it!! It definitely drives and rides different from the 19 Sport. Much...
  9. Forester Shopping
    Hey folks, I'm shopping around, and for whatever reason, the only FW around all have the added option package (HK audio, Navigation etc.). Any reason why that is? I'm looking to get one without any added options. Thanks!

    Second Subaru in the family but my first. Going to pickup my 2022 Autumn Green Wilderness tomorrow (1/22/22). I look forward to getting to know other members in the my area (Louisville, KY, Midwest & Southeastern) and getting to know my new Forester better. I'm sure I'll have all kinds of...
  11. Exterior and Body
    For anyone looking to install the factory Splash Guards, it is a relatively simple matter. UPDATE - HERE IS A LINK TO THE INSTALLATION GUIDE FOR THESE: https://techinfo.subaru.com/stis/doc/accInstallGuide/J101SSJ600_Forester%20Wilderness%20Splash%20Guards.pdf These will take 15-30 minutes to...
  12. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, newbie here and also newbie to Subaru. I just brought home my new Forester Wilderness on December 28, and (aside from the headlights!) I'm loving it. BUT: about a week after I brought it home (and after one longish roundtrip drive of ~900 miles) I noticed this weekend a really concerning...
  13. Offroad Fozzies
    Hi everyone! I just took delivery of a new Forester Wilderness (and immediately took it out around the trails in San Diego County). I was wondering if anyone else has one and has started doing off-road mods yet?
  14. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    Hi there, I have a 2017 forester xt touring with the stock 18” wheels wrapped in old geolander at 225/55/r18s and am wondering if a pair of 17” stock wheels off the wilderness with geolander 225/65/r17 would fit my 2017? Not so much worried about rubbing or size since they’re only about 3%...
  15. New Member Introductions
    I’ll start off by saying that I’ve never owned a Subaru but only Volkswagens. My last VW being a 2015 CC Sport which I recently sold and got into a 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness. I had never driven a Subaru before but fell in love after test driving the Forester. What’s a couple of changes you...
  16. Utility and Protection
    Anybody ever install a ladder (anywhere, hatch, side, whatever) so you can reach the rack easier? All the ones I have seen online look like they are specifically built to fit 4Runners, Jeeps, or Land Rovers. I currently have a 22 Forester Wilderness on order and I want to beef it up a bit when...
  17. Forester Shopping
    Considering how crazy the supply is right now I thought it might be nice for people to post their orders so we can see when things start coming in. Post your trim, color, date ordered, and projected delivery. When you have an update, quote you original post for reference. Here's mine: Trim...

    Looks like the 2022 Forester and Forester Wilderness will have the same NA engine with an upgraded transmission. Link (thanks to @zachavm): Compare Side-by-Side
