Question about 2007 Subaru Forester 2.5X L.L. Bean Edition
I purchased my very first new car last year. For the first 3000 miles all was good. Then noticed a rattle when I would lightly press on the gas peddle. It only seems to do it when its really cold or really hot. I took it in for my first oil change and the mechanic they didn't hear it. A friend of mine heard it and said it sounded like a valve rattle. Its never consistant. I took it back in, and then was told that it was just the noise that the car makes. It got worse to where Id come to a stop at a light and when I would go people would look. Took it back in and had the mechanic test drive with me, he said he thought it was gas related. They had the car for a week seemed ok...Couple days later same thing...took it back in for another week, they said it was a hickup. By bf got an 09, 3 months ago just hit 3000 miles his is now doing it and I am still getting the run around on mine. The noise is annoying and should not be happening to brand new cars....Help!!!
It is very hard to give you a reliable answer without knowing or hearing the noise for myself. I would take it to another local shop for a real mechanic to listen to the noise. It really ticks me off that the parts changers you have dealt with are so Un-helpful. When working on a Subaru they should have more respect for the customer. Anyway, I would take it to a shop in your area to allow another person to hear the noise. If you give me your area, I will suggest a shop in your area that maybe better at diagnosing your problem.
