Subaru Forester 2012: Rattle isn't being fixed
First you should get their agreement that there is a rattle and that it needs to be fixed. Then you've got a starting point, from which you should be able to work out a plan of action.

Subaru Forester 2012: Excessive oil consumption
The oil consumption is a result of the engine design, being horizontally opposed, and it's not limited to Subaru. Oil accumulates in the rings when it's sitting and you'll sometimes see a puff of smoke from the tailpipe on start-up. It's not something to be concerned about if you check the oil on a regular basis, as you should do on all cars. Use the Subaru recommended oil when topping it up. You'll find that in the owner's manual.Show more
