Schumacher Subaru Of Delray in Boynton Beach-Delray Beach, Florida - Defective steering wheel

3.0
Details
Schumacher Subaru Of Delray - Defective steering wheel
I have a 2017 forester. The steering wheel has started to peel after 21,000.00 miles. I brought it in for service and they will replace the wheel. That is fine now but in two years the wheel will need to be replaced again. I was told it may be from hand cream, hand sweat etc. As a manufacturing executive this is poor engineering not considering the user environment. I do not want the same steering wheel that will peel in less than two years when I am ready to sell or trade the car. I want a steering wheel that wont peel like every other car I have ever owned. I have also been told it is not just my car that had the problem. Not good for resale. All I want is a wheel that is designed properly

First thing to do is file a complaint with the federal government at: https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/VehicleComplaint/ Then, start with Subaru corporate and report the problem and see what they intend to do. You might want to do some more research online into the problem you had with the car to find out more info on other people's problems and any efforts by anyone to get action from Subaru.

Check to see if there are any recalls on the vehicle. At least your insurance should rectify most of the financial costs, but then again, they will probably raise your rates.

I had the same problem a long time ago with a VW and ended up trading it in before anything bad happened. VW denied, of course there was any problem.

Subaru Of America in Walnut Creek, California - Continue to be plagued by Airbag issues with 17 Forrester + 06 Outback

1.5
Details
Airbag light came on a few times while driving with passenger in seat, and nobody in the seat. It is an intermittent issue. Reported by worthless Starlink. Made appointment with Diablo Subaru, had car couple days found nothing, basically thought we were lying, kept asking about seat getting wet. Light came on again during trip with teenage son in that seat (yes he is over 110 pounds). Service again, multiple days, they told my wife they did extensive road test, which was a complete lie, because I marked the mileage, no change. The service records also showed same in and out mileage. Terrible customer service. I brought the car by one more time, when air bag error light was on, on a Saturday, they said nobody was onsite that could help. And now my 06 Outback, who just had the airbag recalled a month ago, and serviced to fix at the same dealership, airbag error light is now going on. Overall really disappointed with my Subaru experience.

Subaru Of America - My 2017 SUBURU Forester is not compatible with family dogs- Labrador Retrievers

We cannot carry our Black Labs in our 2017 SUBURU Forester because the interior is not designed for pets and their paws. The fabric is easily marred by their paws- and their is not a thing we can do about it, per our SUBURU Dealer, Quantrell SUBURU in Lexington, KY. We need help. I need to find a way to transport our pets to the Vet, at least, for their annual checkups and vaccinations. I have invested in multiple items to fit into the car. But we are going to sustain damage with scratches and permanent indents in the soft plastic fabric trim. Seriously, we need help. We paid extra to have the fabric treated to protect it. After we bought the vehicle, we were candidly told that our 2017 Forester was not "designed" to practically carry our pets! We have always carried let's, children, grandchildren. This motivated us to purchase a SUBURU! Now, I have less than 3,000 miles on my SUBURU in its 1st year because I am constrained from using it actively as SUBURU portrays in family/ pet-friendly/dig-lovers' advertising. Please help us. Did we purchase the wrong SUBURU? I am willing to trade it in if there is a model that will better fit our lifestyle. I am a retired teacher, an active volunteer teacher/assistant, an active grandmother and home-maker. We have 2 beloved Black Lab mix dog family members who love to go for rides. I want to live life fully as portrayed by SUBURU. Yet, the 2017 Forester was NOT designed to carry pets? Please help us. I want to totally love my SUBURU Forester - but the SUBURU Commercials make me sad. They mislead us. Now, I am disillusioned with SUBURU. Please help us. We bought the 2017 SUBURU Forester because it was a Top-10 Safe Car for Seniors and the 2016 Safest Car of the Year. And - advertising lead us to believe it fit our active family lifestyle with our pets - Retreiver dogs! I have great faith that SUBURU will take our issue seriously and help us work through a resolution so we can transport Rosie and Gypsey in our 2017 SUBURU Forester. Thank you! :-)

I have a brand new 2017 Subaru Forester -- had it about a week. Out of the blue the "check engine" light is on. Read the manual, and re-did the gas cap as directed. Also have the cruise control icon flashing, the "hill assist" icon illuminated, and the "x-drive" icon...
