I consider that a safety issue, if I needed to get the car going quickly. Fortunately I was able to get the car restarted with another jump. Upon inspection the wiring harness was melted. Dealer pulled codes and replaced bare light switch under warranty. I don't need a lot of fancy luxuries and was looking for safety and reliability which I know I have from past experience.

The break can be detected visually or by using a portable radio. They said they would escalate this and reach out to me. The sudden power loss remains and it is unsafe to operate. Auto-dimming mirror stopped auto-dimming in summer 2009.
The noise has no effect on the reliability of the engine. I was operating on cruise control at 78 mph, approximately 900 miles from home, when a sudden loss of propulsion occurred. Each time I call, I get put on hold after asking for a manager. The entire system needs to be replaced. Decided to wait until next service appointment for the repair because the dealer did not have the part windshield wiper motor in stock. Added compressor oil and dye. The dealer did not respond to our recall appointment requests.
The service technician stated I had an error code of P0606. It was partially disassembled and the loose parts were secured. The dealer wanted to see it to believe it but i work and cannot take time off. Doesn't work most of the time by not responding to your commands. Dealer replaced compressor, belts, recharged system, a couple o-rings, etc.
They replaced the brake light switch with no guarantees this will fix the push start issue. Phone in question is Moto G 2015. Poor cooling continues and car is on its way back to repair shop. Also, the power lift gate was inoperable. System had to be reset by dealer.
Since no tail lights is a safety issue, dealer insisted on keeping the car until corrected. Subaru forester radios are reliable, well-designed, and a brilliant option to give relatives the gift of special electronic automotive media playing systems. Afterwards the radio did not work. I have written documentation from Subaru of America stating the dealers must install Subaru parts. Finally at about 16000 miles, and failing an oil consumption test they replaced the short block.

It also doesn't stay connected well throughout the week. When trying to close sunroof, normally the roof window would slide back and a set of pin will push the rear side of the window up to seal the gap between the window and rooftop. Another shop confirmed facts and corrected some damage. If a clutch disc or a brake pad needs to be replaced at low mileage, the dealership must satisfy itself that the replacement is not the result of one of the exclusions listed. Then if we want it colder, we set it lower after the inside has cooled off some. I have been getting 29.
