  1. Pleased you've found a nice one Wulbert, it looks nice in black 🙂 enjoy.
  2. Mine is still nice and cold after 8 months of ownership - it does warm up a bit after a while if its on all the time ...., I don't know if it should do that or not. I just keep turning it on for a few minutes for a cold blast now and again, it seems to stay cold that way. So I guess it's been constant for 8 months at least.
  3. I dont know if this would be good or bad for you but a 4 speed auto like mine will creep up to around 5mph + when driving from standstill on the flat without touching the accelerator pedal so sometimes I'm on the brakes before even touching the gas pedal. Another point is that the car travels far too fast in 1st downhill (not using brakes) - so when the snow comes low range would have been ideal but there we go. Hope you find a nice one 🙂
  4. I bought more or less the first Forester that I came across in December (I'm nuts like that but its how I work) - 2008 2.0 XS petrol, spent about a grand on it for four decent tyres, cam belt change and a service - its never let me down and skips along where ever I need to go very comfy van with occasional rear seats 🙂
  5. Maybe there's a chipped or broken tooth on the crank cog that the sensor reads ...might be worth checking, doubt that would throw a code as in your problem.
  6. Yep...I guess you'd have a blinking LED if an alarm was fitted - hope your dad enjoys his Forester 🙂
  7. Foresters have been factory fitted with alarms since 2001- unless privately imported, maybe your WRX was privately imported to not have one.
  8. Think its called "Information reminder light" if you google it something should pop up 🙂
  9. Sounds like a radiator problem to me ...not a quick enough flow through - so noticeable temp increase at motorway speed . On one of my threads I was told that original Subaru water pumps are very well built and last 150K miles plus.... so I'd check the radiator next
  10. I don't know why any family car manufacturer would program their cars to only unlock the drivers door when the rest of the family has to be let in from the inside - and not provide an easy way to switch it around on all of their models ....when today's modern cars are designed with so many features of convenience. Anyway hope your dealer sorts it. Cheers 🙂
  11. Oh right ...Americans get everything ...hope you get it sorted 🙂
  12. Can you do this ...Forester is explained here.
  13. (1) If you have a genuine subaru sat nav fitted you can turn auto locking on / off / change delay time settings / via the monitor - if not then a Subaru dealer can do it (from my 08 manual ) maybe its changed now but check your sat nav manual if you have one. (2) All the doors should open when you press the remote unlock twice within 5 seconds - they do on mine anyway.
