Summary of Complaint

ON APRIL 11TH WE BOUGHT OUR BRAND NEW SUBARU LEGACY IT HAD MAYBE 34 MIILES ON IT (GIVE OR TAKE) MY HUSBAND DRIVES THE CAR AND A COUPLE OF DAYS HAVING THE CAR THE RADIO/BACKUP CAMERA/PHONE SYSTEM CRASHES- IT HAPPENED A COUPLE OF TIMES. ON APRIL 14TH MY HUSBAND BROUGHT THE CAR INTO SERVICE. NOW I AM GOING TO JUST SPEED THINGS UP PUT ALL SERVICE VISITS IN ONE EXPLANATION AS I DO NOT HAVE MANY CHARACTERS LEFT. IN THE 8 TIMES THAT WE HAVE BEEN TO SERVICE WITH LOANER CARS, THEY REPLACED THE RADIO ONCE. THEY COULDN'T REPLICATE THE ISSUE, SO WE SENT THEM VIDEO OF IT. THEY HAD NO CLUE WHAT TO DO WITH IT SO THEY SENT TO JAPAN AND WAITING FOR AN ANSWER. IN THE MEANTIME, THERE IS A SWEET SMELL COMING FROM THE ENGINE. SERVICE SAYS THAT THERE IS NO LEAK AND THE SMELL IS NORMAL AND FINE. WE DO NOT AGREE. I HAVE HAD MANY NEW CARS AND THE ENGINE NEVER SMELLS LIKE THAT. WHEN MY HUSBAND PICKED UP THE CAR YESTERDAY FROM SERVICE THERE IS A HUGE DING IN THE BACK SIDE. MY HUSBAND DIDN'T NOTICE UNTIL HE GOT HOME. I HAVE ALREADY CALLED SUBARU CORPORATE AND EVERY TIME THEY SAY, "WE HAVE TO HEAR WHAT SERVICE HAS TO SAY." IT HAS BEEN TWO MONTHS AND STILL NO RESOLUTION. HOW LONG AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT TO SEE WHAT THE NEXT STEPS ARE?

Summary of Complaint

CAN ( Controller Area Network) is causing a parasitic draining of my battery causing me to have to jump my car regularly and I changed the battery less than a year ago. I know that I'm not the only person that has had this issue, I'm aware of the current class action lawsuit out against Subaru for this current situation. This is a very costly a serious issue that demands attention now. It's very dishonest of Subaru to tell you that nothing's wrong or offer any fix, all while taking our hard earned money. I'm very frustrated because I can't afford to continue messing with this issue nor can I simply go out and buy another vehicle. I have been left stranded both at home and aboard leaving my wife and kids not too mention myself at risk. I have taken the vehicle in and haven't had any remedy. No other failures at the time of this reporting.

Summary of Complaint

I have a 2015 subaru legacy 2.5i engine. The problem i have is a blown fuse in the main compartment F26 (backup). I have read subaru forum(s) and in earlier years this is same issue that I current have in my car. In the older models this was recalled and the issue was reworked at subaru repair centers at their cost. This issue also said it could cause a over heating and possible cause a fire. Please look into this issue. Kind Regards, Doug Whittemore 57 lexington ave. haverhill, MA 01835

Summary of Complaint

When I was in the garage (about 2 months ago) trying to start my car, it tried to start but did not. Repeated attempts to start the car failed, and it acted like the battery was low. I measured the battery voltage and it was only 5.9 volts. I recharged the battery and took it to an auto parts place to get a new battery. They tested the battery and said it was still good and would not recommend replacing it. The car has been fine since. I realize this is not exactly a safety issue except if it had happened someplace remote and not in my garage where I could work on it it could have been bad. I just found out there is a class action lawsuit against Subaru over their CAN system that sometimes fails (does not go to sleep) and causes the battery to run down faster than it should. It sounds to me like that is what happened to my car. If you are keeping up with complaints about Subaru's CAN system I guess you can add mine to the list (or database). Thanks for your efforts.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE A 2015 LEGACY WITH 2 WINDOW CRACKS. I RECEIVED A NOTICE IN THE MAIL REGARDING EXTENDED WARRANTY FROM SUBARU THAT THEY WOULD COVER REPLACING THE WINDSHIELD. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER TODAY AND THEY SAID IT IS NOT COVERED THAT IT LOOKS LIKE IMPACT HAPPENED TO WINDSHIELD. WHEN I DROPPED OFF THE VEHICLE LAST NIGHT THERE WAS ONLY 1 CRACK AND TODAY THERE ARE 2. THERE WAS NO IMPACT TO THE WINDSHIELD AND THE DEALER SAYS THEY DON'T DO IT THERE. I NEED YOUR HELP. THE WINDSHIELD WAS DEFECTIVE AND SUBARU ADMITTED IT BUT THE DEALERS DON'T WANT TO FIX. I WILL ALSO NEED THE ONE SITE RE CALIBRATED ONCE THE WINDOW IS REPLACED WHICH THEY SAY IS NOT COVERED. HOW COULD THAT BE? THEY SAID I SHOULD FILE AN INSURANCE CLAIM WHICH SEEMS LIKE INSURANCE FRAUD.

Summary of Complaint

SITTING IN PARKED VEHICLE, MOTOR OFF, WINDOWS DOWN HEARD A QUICK POPPING SOUND. I LOOKED SITTING IN PARKED VEHICLE, ENGINE OFF, WINDOWS DOWN, HEARD A QUICK POPPING NOISE. A QUICK INSPECTION, LOOKING AROUND SAW NOTHING. ABOUT 20 MINUTES LATER DRIVING HOME, TOP SPEED 35 MPH, ON A LOCAL COMMUNITY ROAD, SAW A HAIRPIN CRACK STARTING FROM BOTTOM OF WINDOW, DRIVER'S SIDE, GOING UP ACROSS WINDSHIELD AND MIDWAY ACROSS. THE WINDOW WAS CLEAR EXCEPT FOR CRACK. CALLED A REPUTABLE COMPANY TO SCHEDULE APPOINTMENT. THE REPRESENTATIVE SUGGESTED I CALL THE SUBARU MAINTENANCE DEPARTMENT AS PREVIOUS SUBARU CUSTOMERS HAD RECALL ON WINDSHIELD. I CALL TO LEARN VIN NOT A RECALL. I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH MY SUBARU. I HAVE TAKEN THE VEHICLE BACK TO THE SUBARU DEALER FROM WHOM I PURCHASED EVERY SIX MONTH FOR OIL CHANGE AND ALL RECOMMENDED MILEAGE MAINTENANCE INSPECTION. DUE TO LOW MILEAGE, 26,433, COULD IT BE POSSIBLE THE WINDSHIELD MAY BE DEFECTIVE? THANKING YOU IN ADVANCE FOR A QUICK RESPONSE.😊

I PARKED MY CAR ON A ROAD (NEIGHBORHOOD) WITH A SLIGHT INCLINE. I WENT AROUND IN FRONT OF IT TO LOOK AT AN ITEM FOR SALE (SMALLL PINK PIANO) IN THE YARD. I LOOKED AT THE ITEM, THEN HEARD MY CAR TAKE OFF. I TRIED TO RUN TO GET INTO IT TO STOP IT, BUT IT WAS GOING TOO FAST. IT ENDED UP GOING TO THE RIGHT AND RUNNING INTO THE GARAGE OF THE HOUSE I WAS NEAR. IT HIT THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE GARAGE AND CONTINUED INTO THE GARAGE WHERE IT WAS STOPPED BY SOME PAINT CANS PILED UP AND THE BACK OF THE GARAGE. THE MAN WHO LIVED IN THE HOUSE WAS ABLE TO SQUEEZE INTO THE DRIVERS SIDE AND BACK IT OUT - I DROVE IT HOME (ABOUT 2 BLOCKS). MY INSURANCE COMPANY CAME OUT AND ESTIMATED THE DAMAGE AT ABOUT $4500, BUT THEY HAVE NOT LOOKED UNDERNEATH OR AT THE MECHANICS. SUBARU IS INVESTIGATING. PICTURES ARE TOO BIG TO UPLOAD

Summary of Complaint

ESPECIALLY, WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, I COULD HEAR THE UNUSUAL SPINNING OF THE WHEELS. IT HAPPENED ABOUT A YEAR AGO, AND WHEN I BROUGHT IT TO THE ATTENTION OF THE FRONT DESK CLERK AT THE QUALITY SUBARU IN WALLINGFORD, CT., HE INFORMED ME THAT HE WILL LET THE TECHNICIAN KNOW. HE NEVER WROTE ANYTHING REGARDING MY CONCERNS ON THE SLIP WITH THE OIL CHANGE INFORMATION. THE TECHNICIAN SAID, THAT HE DID NOT SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT, IT COULD BE THE SURFACE OF THE HIGHWAY OR MY TIRES. I PURCHASED NEW TIRES, INSTALL NEW BRAKES AND THE NOISE WAS STILL THERE. ON FEBRUARY 25, 2020, I WENT THROUGH ANOTHER MULTIPOINT INSPECTION, AND THIS TIME, THE TECHNICIAN FOUND BOTH REAR WHEEL BEARINGS NOISY AND RECOMMENDED REPLACING THEM FOR $1155.OO PLUS TAX AND MY CAR HAD 69057 MILES. MY COMPLAINT IS THAT THE SAME NOISE WAS THERE ABOUT A YEAR AGO WHEN MY CAR WAS 55000 MILES AND I KIND OF USED TO THIS NOISE. PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF IT. THANK YOU.

NOW THE DEALER BELIEVES THE PROBLEM IS A FAULTY CYLINDER (WHATEVER THAT MEANS).I HAVE NO TRUST IN THE RELIABILITY OF THIS VEHICLE AND AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF DRIVING THIS VEHICLE WITH MY FAMILY. IT BE SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THE CAR HAS BEEN SERVICED EXACTLY TO THE INSTRUCTIONS PER THE MILEAGE GUIDANCE. I HAVE REPORTED THIS CONCERN TO SUBARU OF AMERICA CORPORATE OFFICE. CASE # 1-38872409282. THEIR RESPONSE IS UNFAIR. I AM NOW LEFT WITH A CAR THAT IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE AND I SHOULD NOT BE PENALIZED FINANCIALLY.

Summary of Complaint

MY VEHICLE WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT YESTERDAY. WHILE PULLING IN TO A PARKING SPOT AND ALMOST COMPLETELY STOPPED WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE ABOUT TO PLACE THE CAR IN PARK, IT SUDDENLY ACCELERATED. THE RESULT WAS A FRONT END COLLISION WITH THE SIDE OF A RESTAURANT AND THE AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. I'M GRATEFUL THAT THERE WERE NO INJURIES BUT I'M WORRIED THAT THERE MAY BE SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH THIS VEHICLE AND POSSIBLY OTHERS LIKE IT. I'M NOT SURE HOW TO START AN INVESTIGATION OF THIS NATURE SO I'M TURNING TO YOUR ORGANIZATION FOR GUIDANCE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS.
