Voice Recognition Does Not Work

CarComplaints.com Notes: Subaru thinks burning through a quart of oil every 1,000 miles or so is perfectly normal. That's a crude stance if you ask us.

2015 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #4

Aug 292019

Forester Limited 2.5L Boxer

  • CVT transmission
  • 98,320 miles


I was all excited to buy a car with the Bluetooth pairing to my cellphone, but this is clearly an early, failed, attempt at it. About all I can do is answer the phone while on the move, which is a treat, but I can't make calls, which may be a good thing. The damn thing won't use my telephone's contact list, and doesn't recognize my voice - I tried to enter my wife's number in the car's phonebook for over an hour but finally gave up in disgust. The next car I test drive will be tested a lot more thoroughly than this one. And will probably be a Toyota.

BT Dial by voice dosent work, radio is CF625UM. I have deleted phone and added back in, same results. Very frustrating as I need handsfree calling due to Florida laws.

bluetooth has a hard time recognizing my commands

The system can hardly understand who I am. Gets numbers wrong, making it all out impossible to add info.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10 miles

It's totally worthless. I paid for something I didn't get. The service dept. at the dealer told me to read the manual.
