Subaru Forester 2009 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Forester 2009 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Subaru Forester 2009: Why are the warning lights flashing on the dash?

    It’s possible that something has thrown an error code curve-ball at the car, Luke. It’s quite possible that a re-set of the ECU (and you can try it at home by disconnecting the battery for half-an-hour or so and then reconnecting it) will switch the warning lights off and return things to normal.

    The other alternative is to take the car to a Subaru dealership and have the car scanned to see what fault codes get thrown up. It doesn’t take a huge fault to bring on these symptoms and I’ve even heard of a car driven with a loose fuel cap causing an almost identical problem.

  • Is it safe to use E10 in cars built after 2007?

    Subaru's advice is correct and they confirmed it for us. The problems mentioned by the service manager are ones that might be experienced by owners of old cars, particularly those running carburetors. We also approached the Biofuels Association and they too confirmed that you could use E10 without a problem.

  • I Can't Go Low

    A CARS such as the Corolla, Mazda3 and Honda Civic will tow a small box trailer comfortably without overstressing the engine, and will be more economical than your Commodores were. But because you have found getting in and out of the Corolla difficult you need to try other cars to see how they stack up. Alternatively, try a compact SUV such as a Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester. They are higher, which may make them easier to get in and out. You should be able to get a two or three-year-old model within your budget.
