2012 Subaru Forester Reviews and Ratings
Wagon 5D X Premium AWD
October 22, 2019
Owned 4 years 7 months
Bought it used with 50,000 miles w/manual trans. Nothing but trouble. Oil consumption got worse with time. One quart of synthetic oil every 800 miles at $7-9 a quart. Do the math. Transmission bearings, wheel bearings, stalling issue. Finally gave up and traded it in at a loss. Beware: oil consumption is a very common issue on 2012+ Stay away from trades or multiple owners.

I''ve had my 2012 since new, have kept up on maintenance as needed - everything the car needed. At 45K miles, the engine started consuming oil - at 92K I found out there was a class action lawsuit on this issue. Subaru put a new set of piston rings in it and its noisy on startup in the cold. Other than that I love my car. Just worried that the engine repair won''t last. Have not other complaints other than fuel economy isn''t the best for an SUV.
