Subaru Forester: Operation during cold weather / Parking in cold weather

WARNING

Snow can trap dangerous exhaust gases under your vehicle. Keep snow clear of the exhaust pipe and from around your vehicle if you park the vehicle in snow with the engine running.

CAUTION

  • Do not use the parking brake when parking for long periods in cold weather since it could freeze in that position.
  • When the vehicle is parked in snow or when it snows, raise the wiper blades off the glass to prevent damage to them.
  • When the vehicle has been left parked after use on roads heavily covered with snow, or has been left parked during a snowstorm, icing may develop on the brake system, which could cause poor braking action. Check for snow or ice buildup on the suspension, disc brakes and brake hoses underneath the vehicle. If there is caked snow or ice, remove it, being careful not to damage the disc brakes, brake hoses or ABS harness.

When parking for long periods in cold weather, you should observe the following tips.

  1. Place the select lever in the “P” position.
  2. Use tire stops under the tires to prevent the vehicle from moving.
