After leasing a 1998 Forester I, we decided to purchase a 2001 Forester I I/ premium pkg. We've had front vibration problem right out of the dealership. Wheel balance was checked, tires were rotated. Dealer service kept. suspected faulty axle(?)!!, then replaced drive shaft!! They still can't figure out problem. Subaru of America has been contacted and after contacting the dealer, they are sending regional technician to analyze situation... at this point, I've told S.O.A. I want and EXPECT a NEW vehicle!!
