I just bought a 2012 Forester. Nowhere in the manual does it explain how to turn the passenger side air bag on.
Does this mean the car is not equipped with a passenger-side air bag?

Our 2012 forester is using about one quart per 1000 miles.

I turn on the car and turn the ac on but sometimes it doesn't want to turn on. After a while it'll engaged and work. The compressor turns on because I hear it make that noise like releasing gas or something. But, as of right now it's not working. I was hoping maybe it's a wire or something.
