Replacing the battery in your Subaru Forester has never been easier. Subaru owners trust Batteries Plus to replace the batteries in their Foresters. Batteries Plus can help you, too. And new car batteries aren't the only solutions you'll find. Batteries Plus stocks a complete selection of Subaru solutions in our Auto Center, including key fobs, replacement wipers, car phone accessories, jumper cables and jump starters, as well as any kind of bulb you need for your Subaru, from headlights to brake lights to interior bulbs.
Subaru batteries, like most kinds of car & truck batteries, last anywhere from 3-5 years. Does your battery need to be replaced? To find out, look for some signs . A battery that's failing will take a bit longer to start your car than normal. You might also see dimmer headlights when your car is idling. A big sign that you need a new battery for your Forester is that you require jump starts to get going. One single jump may not be an issue. But multiple jump starts, either with a jump starter, or using another vehicle and jumper cables connected between the two, is a good sign that a new battery is in your future. Another sign that your Subaru needs a new battery is any kind of corrosion, leaking, or odd smell coming from the battery. You'll want to have any of those conditions looked at by an expert.
If you're just not sure whether you need a new battery or not, just bring your Subaru Forester to Batteries Plus. Any of our stores will offer free battery testing, plus free battery installation on most vehicles at most locations with your auto battery purchase.
Your Subaru Forester, regardless of the model year, will take a group 35 battery. And while you can use a traditional flooded battery, it's recommended that your battery replacement be an AGM battery with a minimum of 550 cold cranking amps, or CCA. A "group 35" battery means 35 Ah (ampere hours), and an ampere hour is the standard unit of measurement for a battery. All that said, if you'd prefer an expert's opinion on the most durable, reliable battery for your Subaru, look no further than the experts at your local Batteries Plus. Our store locator will tell you immediately where we are.
Now that you've replaced your battery, what do you do with the old one? Problem solved. Batteries Plus will recycle your old Subaru Forester battery when the new one is in place. Recycling is something we stand behind, be it for auto batteries, alkaline batteries, light bulbs and more. Our Recycling Services page tells the full story.
