2017 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 102017

Forester Limited 2.51

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,500 miles

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

I purchased a used 2017 Subaru Forester which had 22,750 miles on it when I bought it. Salesman said there were no defects with the car (ha ha). After two weeks, saw severe pitting of the windshield when the sun shown low in the sky in the morning. Took it back to PS Subaru in Cathedral City, CA. Sales manager argued with me about the windshield denying any liability for the pitting (I had driven the car for only about 1,000 miles). Received no response from dealership as to the problem. Also, was forced to finance the car, although I wanted to pay for it with cash. Financing cost me several hundred dollars and lowered my credit rating by 30 points. Paid the finance contract in full. Typical car salesman BS.

Current class action suit pending for window defects with Outbacks and Legacies (and, obviously for some Foresters). No help from the dealership. Very disappointed.
