Don’t know if this is just me, but I purchased a 2017 Subaru Legacy in Aug. 2016. I don’t drive it much, maybe 1 – 2 short trips a
week with longer trips around the holidays. In the last 7 days I had to call Subaru Roadside assistance twice to have it jumpstarted. Took it to the dealer and they politely told me that it wasn’t the battery, it was me, I wasn’t starting it enough. Never saw that in the manual!
I insisted they test the battery and it did fail the 2nd test, so they replaced it (with the exact same model of battery).
I’ve owned cars for over 40 years, my driving pattern hasn’t changed, I traded in a 3 year old Toyota to purchase the Subaru, never needed a jump on that one. So, is it me or is Subaru using cheap rump roast batteries?
