Safety features

cHild sAfety locks Child safety locks are located on the rear inside edges of the rear doors. In the locked position, rear doors can only be opened from the outside.

seAtBelts To fasten your seatbelt: adjust your seatback to the upright position and position yourself an appropriate distance from the steering wheel in order to maintain full vehicle control. Sit well back in the seat. Insert the tongue plate into the buckle until you hear a click. The shoulder belt anchor height should be adjusted to the position best suited for your comfort. To unfasten your seatbelt: push the button on the buckle. Seatbelts must be worn at all times.

cHild restrAint system For maximum safety, first carefully read and follow the instructions from the device manufacturer, as well as the installation instructions in your Owner’s Manual, to properly install the restraint system using the appropriate seatbelts or anchorages provided in your vehicle. Children ages 12 and under must properly occupy the rear seat at all times.

tire pressUre monitoring system (tpms) When the Tire Pressure Monitoring System detects that one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated, the warning light will blink, then illuminate steadily. You should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure as soon as possible. If the tire pressure is set in a warm garage and the vehicle is moved to a cold temperature, the tire pressure drops, which could cause the tire pressure warning lamp to illuminate. Under these circumstances,

increase the tire pressure by 1 psi for every 10˚F. Tire pressure should be checked after tires cool down from driving.

towing yoUr All-wHeel drive veHicle Since All-Wheel Drive (AWD) distributes engine power to all four wheels, improper towing will severely damage your AWD system. A flatbed truck is the best way to properly transport your AWD vehicle. If towing is necessary, it is best done by your SUBARU dealer or a commercial towing service.

mAintAin comfort in Any condition For hot, cold and everything in between, Subaru climate control systems allow you to maintain comfort in any condition. With the automatic climate control system, the “AUTO” feature automatically controls air temperature, fan speed, and distribution of air flow at the touch of a button.

199382_10_Forester_QRG_042709.indd 9

4/27/09 4:09:47 PM

Climate controls

AUtomAtic climAte control (if eqUipped) When the climate control system is set to AUTO, the outlet air temperature, fan speed, air flow distribution, air inlet control and air conditioner compressor operation are all automatically controlled to maintain a constant, comfortable temperature inside the vehicle. The automatic climate control system utilizes several delicate sensors. If damaged, the system may not be able to control the interior temperature correctly. Do not subject the sensors to impact, keep water away from them and do not cover them.

fAn speed control diAl Turn the dial to AUTO (recommended setting) to automatically adjust the fan speed in accordance with the air temperature inside and outside the vehicle. Turn the dial past AUTO to select the desired fan speed. Turn the dial to the OFF position to turn the fan off.

Air inlet selection BUtton Select this function for fast cooling with the air conditioner or when driving on a dusty road. Press the button to turn ON the air inlet and recirculate air inside the vehicle. The indicator light illuminates. When the interior has cooled to a comfortable temperature or the road is no longer dusty, press the button again to turn OFF the air inlet and allow

outside air to flow into the vehicle. Press the button again to cancel the AUTO mode. To prevent fogging, do not stay in the recirculated mode for any extended period of time. When both the air flow control dial and the fan speed control dial are in the AUTO position, the air inlet is set to the AUTO mode. Operating the air inlet selection button in this state cancels the AUTO mode. To return to the AUTO mode, turn the air flow control dial or the fan speed control dial to a position other than the AUTO position. Then turn to the AUTO position.

Air flow control diAl This dial has six positions. Subaru recommends using the AUTO position, which adjusts the air flow automatically in accordance with the air temperature inside and outside the vehicle. The dial can also be set to distribute air through the instrument panel outlets; the instrument panel outlets and foot outlets simultaneously; the foot outlets; the windshield defroster outlets and foot outlets simultaneously; or solely through the windshield defroster outlets.

reAr window defogger BUtton Press the rear window defogger button to clear the rear window of fog or frost. The indicator light will illuminate while activated. To turn the rear defogger

off, press the button again. The rear defogger will shut off automatically after approximately 15 minutes. This button also operates the outside mirror defogger (if equipped) and the windshield wiper de-icer (if equipped).

windsHield defrost/defog To clear the windshield and side windows of fog or frost, set the air flow control to the defrost position, turn the temperature control dial fully clockwise and set the fan speed control to the fastest speed. When the dial is set to the windshield defrost or simultaneous foot outlet and windshield defrost position, the air conditioner compressor operates automatically to defog the windshield quickly. At the same time, the air inlet selection is automatically set to outside air mode.

temperAtUre control diAl This dial is used to set the desired interior temperature. Turn the dial fully counterclockwise for maximum cooling performance. Turn fully clockwise for maximum heating.

Air conditioning BUtton When the fan speed control dial is in a position other than OFF and the A/C button is pushed, the cooling/ dehumidifying function will start operating and the indicator light will illuminate. To stop the function, push

199382_10_Forester_QRG_042709.indd 10

the A/C button again. When both the air flow control dial and the fan speed control dial are in the AUTO position, the cooling/dehumidifying function is set to the AUTO mode. Operating the air conditioner button in this state cancels the AUTO mode of the cooling/ dehumidifying function. To return to the AUTO mode, turn the air flow control dial or the fan speed control dial to a position other than the AUTO position. Then turn to the AUTO position.
