The battery in this car has been terrible. 3 times it has been too low to start the car after leaving the ignition on for under 10 minutes. Most recently it was seriously struggling and then failed to start the car in the cold (28F) weather. Decided to just buy a new, larger CCA battery for it. Also, at no point during the failed starts has the Low Battery voltage indicator come on, despite it failing to start the car. Not very impressed with my first Subaru so far.
