    Just bought my first Subaru and was really happy with it until my gas lid refused to open. After pushing on it about 30, times it finally came open. The Forester only has 1,000 miles on it. Is any one else having this problem?

    As far as I know, the gas cap release is recessed into the floor of the drivers side, under the drivers feet.

    Thanks for your response. The new 2019 Forester don't have a release inside the vehicle. You just push in on the gas lid and it pops open.

    Just figured it out. If you lock your doors, it also locks the gas lid.
