Summary of Complaint

WHILE MY 75 YEAR-OLD MOTHER WAS DRIVING HOME FROM THE JOB SHE STILL WORKS TO PAY HER BILLS, THE BRAKES ON HER SUBARU FAILED. THE CAR WAS IN MOTION, PULLING OUT OF THE PARKING LOT OF THE BUILDING WHERE SHE WORKS. FORTUNATELY, SHE WAS ABLE TO GET TO A SAFE PLACE AND STOP THE VEHICLE, AND THANKFULLY SHE WAS NOT INJURED. UPON INSPECTION, WE DISCOVERED THE FAILURE WAS DUE TO CORRODED BRAKE LINES. THE LINES LEAKED IN THE RIGHT REAR AREA, NEAR THE WHEEL. INVESTIGATING ONLINE, I DISCOVERED A HUGE RECALL OF SUBARUS AROUND THE SAME YEAR, MAKE AND MODEL AS MY MOM'S. BUT ACCORDING TO SUBARU OF AMERICA AND NHTSA, UNFORTUNATELY, MY MON'S CAR IS FOR SOME REASON NOT COVERED BY THIS RECALL. THAT SEEMS LIKE AN OVERSIGHT, BECAUSE THE LINES ARE DEFINITELY CORRODED, AND MY MOM LIVES IN THE SAME 'SALT BELT' AREA (WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS) WHERE THE 600K+ OTHER, COVERED, SUBARUS ARE. I KNOW RECALL INVESTIGATIONS TAKE TIME, SO THIS COMPLAINT PROBABLY WON'T HELP US ' MOM WILL HAVE TO PAY OUT OF POCKET TO REPAIR THE LINES, WHICH WILL LIKELY COST ALL OF HER LIMITED MONTHLY INCOME FROM SOCIAL SECURITY AND JOBS ' BUT IF MAKING THIS COMPLAINT HELPS OTHERS, IT'S WELL WORTH THE EFFORT. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR YOUR ATTENTION AND ASSISTANCE.

Summary of Complaint

HARD START, ROUGH IDLE, DROVE 3 MILES, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TURNS ON, CODE: P0021 BANK1/2. DID RESEARCH. IT'S A BANJO BOLT FILTER/SCREEN MINE WAS CRACKED IN HALF INSIDE THE OIL LINE RESTRICTING OIL TO THE TURBO. MANAGED TO REMOVE ONE EASILY ACCESSIBLE BANJO SCREEN WHICH FIXED HALF THE PROBLEM. THE OTHER BOLT VIRTUALLY NOT ACCESSIBLE BY ME. ALMOST ALL TURBO VEHICLES FROM SUBARU EXPERIENCE THIS PROBLEM AS CODE: P0021 OR JUST CATASTROPHIC TURBO/ENGINE/COOLANT FAILURE.

Summary of Complaint

POSSIBLY RELATED TO TAKATA RECALL AFTER LOCAL DEALER SERVICED THE RECALL, THE AIR BAG LIGHT CAME ON. DEALER HAS SAID IT IS FAULT CODE 26, WHICH IS RELATED TO A FAILURE OF THE PASSENGER AIRBAG INDICATOR. THIS PROBLEM IS PERVASIVE AND WIDE SPREAD, A SIMPLE GOOGLE SEARCH WILL GARNISH TENS AND POSSIBLY HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CITING THIS FAILURE. ON TOP OF SUBARU NOT BEING FORTHCOMING WITH THIS INFORMATION, THE DEALER HAS ONLY MADE PROBLEM WORSE IN THEIR ATTEMPT TO FIX WHAT SHOULD BE A SIMPLE WIRING ISSUE THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO FIX ON THEIR OWN. IT IS UNCLEAR IF THE PASSENGER AIRBAG WILL DEPLOY WHILE THIS CODE IS PRESENT. WE BELIEVE IT TO BE RELATED TO RECALL AS THE PASSENGER WIRING HARNESS IS INVOLVED IN THE REPAIR AND COULD HAVE BEEN INCORRECTLY INSTALLED OR THE PROBLEM WAS THEIR AND THE DEALER DID NOT TELL US ABOUT IT.

Summary of Complaint

IN COLD TEMPERATURES WHEN STARTING THE CAR THERE IS A SMELL OF RAW FUEL THAT FILLS THE CABIN TO THE POINT WHERE I HAVE TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE AND AIR IT OUT BEFORE IT WOULD BE SAFE TO DRIVE. SUBARU HAS TSB'S ON THIS ISSUE FOR MANY VEHICLE MODELS AND YEARS BUT DOES NOT SEEM TO THINK IT IS WORTHY OF A RECALL. THIS ISSUE FIRST STARTED FOR ME ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN A CONSTANT PROBLEM SINCE.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL I PURCHASED THIS CAR SIX MONTHS AGO FROM A SMALL DEALEERSHIP IN VACAVILLE, CA. I PAID HALF THE PRICE FOR THE CAR IN CASH THE DAY I BOUGHT IT AFTER THEY ASSURED ME THAT IT CLEARED THE STATE INSPECTION. NOT EVEN 4000 MILES AFTER I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE THE MOTOR IS BLOWN AND THERE IS THE TAKATA RECALL FROM 2016 THAT HAS NOT BEEN HANDLED. I JUST PURCHASED THE CAR IN 09/2017.

VIN: JF1GD67616H****

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL, I RECEIVED A NOTIFICATION IN THE MAIL THAT THERE IS A RECALL FOR MY SUBARU IMPREZA'S AIR BAGS, I HAVE CALLED THE DEALER TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT FOR A REPAIR WHICH THE NOTIFICATION SAID WOULD TAKE 45MINUTES. THE DEALER SCHEDULED AN APPOINTMENT, I WAITED A WEEK WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO USE MY VEHICLE. THEN THE DEALER CALLED ME AND TOLD ME THAT THEY HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO GET THE PART. THEY ALSO TOLD ME THAT WHEN THEY DO FINALLY GET THE PART THE REPAIR WILL TAKE 3 DAYS. THEY STILL HAVE NOT CALLED ME TO SCHEDULE A NEW REPAIR TIME. I AM STUCK WITHOUT A VEHICLE STILL AND I USE THE VEHICLE FOR WORK. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW LONG I WILL BE WITHOUT A VEHICLE BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT TELL ME HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE TO GET THE REPLACEMENT PART. THEY ARE NOT REPAIRING MY CAR IN A TIMELY MANNER. I WOULD LIKE TO BE COMPENSATED. THEY CAN GIVE ME A NEW CAR OR A WORKING USED CAR WITHOUT DEFECT. THANK YOU

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL -- I HAVE A 2006 SUBARU. I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM THEM IN MARCH 2017 TELLING ME THERE WAS A SERIOUS ISSUE REGARDING THE TAKATA PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAGS, AT THAT TIME THEY INFORMED ME THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE A FIX. IT IS NOW OCTOBER 2017 AND I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY INFORMATION FROM SUBARU REGARDING A FIX. WHAT DO I DO? IT CONCERNS THE SAFETY OF MY PASSENGERS AND QUITE POSSIBLY ME AS A DRIVER. IT IS NOT A EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO WAIT FOR SOMETHING TO HAPPEN. THE RECALL NUMBERS ARE AS FOLLOWS: SUBARU -- TKC17; NHTSA 17V-016.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL. I HAVE RECEIVED MULTIPLE RECALL NOTICES, YET THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP HAS GIVEN ME MULTIPLE DATES BY WHICH THEY WOULD HAVE THE PARTS, HOWEVER, I KEEP CALLING THEM BACK AND I FEEL THAT THEY ARE TAKING FAR TOO LONG TO DO THIS WORK. I CALLED TODAY, 10-13-2017 AND SPOKE WITH TINA MARIE AT THE DEALERSHIP IN THE CUMBERLAND, MD AREA AND THEY SAID THEY HAVE A CALL LIST BUT "ANOTHER GIRL HAS THE LIST" SO TINA MARIE COULD NOT VERIFY EVEN IF I WAS ON THE CALL LIST OR NOT. THEY HAD TOLD ME BEFORE IT WOULD BE IN AUGUST 2017 I COULD HAVE THE WORK DONE, THEN, THEY TOLD ME SEPTEMBER. I AM VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS ISSUE OF HAVING TO WAIT OVER A YEAR AND A HALF TO GET THIS WORK DONE.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL -- THIS IS REGARDING THE RECALL OF THE 2006 SUBARU IMPREZA PASSENGER AIRBAG. I RECEIVED A LETTER THIS YEAR (IN MARCH 2017) LETTING ME KNOW THAT THE AIRBAG WAS SUBJECT TO RECALL BECAUSE OF SERIOUS MAL-FUNCTION... SERIOUS ENOUGH THAT THEY SUGGEST I NOT HAVE ANYONE SIT IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. SINCE THEN I HAVE HEARD NOTHING FROM SUBARU... NOT EVEN A NOTE SAYING WHEN THEY ANTICIPATE THAT FIX WOULD BE READY. I FIND THIS NOT ONLY A SERIOUS LACK RESPONSIBLITY ON THEIR PART. I REALLY THINK THEY SHOULD BE REQUIRE TO PROVIDE A FIX FOR THIS SERIOUS ISSUE AND THAT THEY SHOULD NOTIFY ALL CONCERNED PERSONS WITHIN 30 DAY MAXIMUM AND THAT A FIX MUST BE AVAILABLE BY THE END OF THIS YEAR....I WOULD APPRECIATE A RESPONSE FROM YOU CONCERNING THIS ISSUE.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL: I FIRST PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE AND IT HAD AN AIRBAG LIGHT ON, BUT WITHOUT ANY HISTORY OF AN ACCIDENT. THE WEIGHT SENSOR ON THE DASHBOARD WHICH NOTIFIES YOU OF SOMEONE SITTING IN THE PASSENGER SEAT CHANGES FROM ON TO OFF JUST FINE. HOWEVER, THE AIRBAG LIGHT HAS REMAINED ON FOR THE LENGTH OF MY OWNERSHIP. I WANT TO KNOW IF THIS IS A DEFECTIVE TAKATA AIRBAG AND MY SPECIFIC MAKE AND MODEL WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE RECALL LIST OF VEHICLES, BUT IN TRUTH THAT IS THE MAIN ISSUE. I HAS HAD THE VEHICLE INSPECTED AN THERE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTING FACTOR INCLUDING A FUSE SHORTAGE OR FAULTY DOME LIGHT.

"TAKATA RECALL" WE HAVE BEEN CONTACTING OUR TRUSTED SUBARU DEALER (CARLSEN SUBARU, 480 VETERANS BLVD REDWOOD CITY,CA 94063) FREQUENTLY SINCE JULY WHEN WE HAVE RECEIVED THE ATTACHED RECALL NOTICE. DURING OUR RECENT VISIT ABOUT THIS RECALL TO THE DEALERSHIP WE WERE TOLD THAT PARTS ARE STILL NOT AVAILABLE, AND THAT SINCE CALIFORNIA HAS A DRY CLIMATE IT IS NOT LIKELY THAT WE HAVE RUSTED COMPONENTS.
