2002 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 242006

Forester 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

2002 Subaru Forester hesitates and lurches dangerously as if fuel is not getting to the engine. When pulling on to a street or highway, the vehicle won't pick up speed and creates a safely hazard and potential rear end accidents.
