It was fixed in 2015 and later generation. Haven't seen much complaint for the newer models.

Didn't Subaru provide a peace offering to oil burning owners?

There's still some kind of oil consumption problem affecting a small number of manual 2015 Foresters, and a tiny number of CVTs.Haven't heard any complaints about the 2016s yet.

I didn't check the tire pressure. It was a brand new one at the dealership, Conv. pkg
I didn't want to try the XT, I am not a big fan of the premium gas requirement for the Turbo engine.
All Foresters come from the factory with around 50psi in the tires. So that could be why the one you test-drove rode so badly.

This was my last '04 Forester.

For cars from Montreal/Quebec, you might have to check the shocks as their road is badly maintained.
