ENGINE NOISE

2011 Subaru Forester • 4 cylinder AWD • 600 miles

We have a new 2011 subaru forester with the fb25b engine. When we start it up in the morning the motor sounds like it has no oil in it. After one or two seconds the noise clears. The noise sounds like a main bearing rattle on a 200,000 mile engine, this motor has only 600 miles. The dealer told me that was normal, but nobody checked out.

It is NOT normal. If dealer will not repair, then contact Subaru directly.
