2015 Forester2.5i Premium CVT
I can find no confirmation anywhere of such a recall, including on the official site NHTSA | National Highway Traffic Safety AdministrationNow the drivers rear coil spring just broke, the vehicle now has about 50k miles on it. I have never even heard of this happening before and now Subaru has a recall for it. It makes me question the quality of the whole vehicle.
Where did you read about this?
For the record, using the only actual statistics (based on hundreds of thousands of actual vehicle) available to the public, of the brands you mention (Subaru, Ford, Honda, Toyota), comparing their compact crossovers (Forester, Escape, CR-V, RAV4), all have fallen to no better than "average" overall reliability, with the Ford below average. The current most reliable car in the class is the Mazda CX-5.
