Summary of Complaint

On October 31 2020, The AC compressor on my vehicle caught fire while I was driving. This caused a foul odorous smoke to fill the cabin of my vehicle which was cough inducing and limited my vision. The air conditioner was not on at this time because of pleasant ambient temperatures outside. I no longer have this part because it was replaced at the dealership along with the serpentine belt that was damaged due to the fire. There was no warning light or noticeable change in the vehicle driving before the incident. I was unaware that I could report this incident until I found this website today.

Summary of Complaint

I CAN"T REMOVE THE KEY FROM THE IGNITION WHEN THE CAR IS PUT IN PARK. THIS ISSUE WARRANTS A RECALL. THIS IS CAUSED BY PROBLEMS WITH THE PARK-RANGE SWITCH ACROSS SEVERAL SUBARU MODELS FROM 2012-2018. SUBARU ISSUED SERVICE BULLETIN 16-112-18R REGARDING THIS ON 3/15/18. THIS IS A WELL KNOWN ISSUE BY OWNERS, DEALERSHIPS AND SUBARU OF AMERICA (SOA). NUMEROUS CAR FORUMS AND BLOGS ADDRESS OWNERS' STEPS TO GET THIS REPAIRED. THE SOLUTIONS OFFERED BY THE DEALERS RANGE FROM ' YOUR CAR IS OUT OF WARRANTY AND IT WILL RUN HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS TO FIX' TO ' YES THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE BRING IT IN AND WE WILL REPLACE IT NO CHARGE'. SOA'S RESPONSE TO OWNERS VARIED FROM 'WE WILL TAKE CARE IT TO WE'LL HAVE TO SEE IF WE CAN HELP YOU OUT'. MY DEALER'S RESPONSE WAS '$700 TO REPAIR ' YOU MIGHT CALL SOA TO SEE IF THEY CAN HELP OUT.' I DID CALL SOA AND THEY TOLD ME TO SET UP AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE DEALER AND LET THEM KNOW WHEN IT WAS ' BUT DID NOT OFFER ANY HELP ON THE COST AT THAT POINT. IT DOES APPEAR THAT SOA WILL COVER THE COST BUT YOU MAY NOT BE TOLD THAT INITIALLY. FORTUNATELY/UNFORTUNATELY THERE IS A QUICK FIX EASILY FOUND ONLINE THAT YOU CAN DO IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES BY DISCONNECTING THE SWITCH TO THE IGNITION. THIS SOLVES THE PROBLEM OF THE STUCK KEY BUT ALSO DISABLES THE CHIME IF YOU LEAVE THE KEYS IN THE IGNITION AND ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO EXIT THE VEHICLE IF THE CAR IS NOT IN PARK. SO NOW, IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL, YOU CAN LOCK YOUR KEYS IN THE CAR AND IF THE CAR IS NOT IN PARK OR THE HAND BREAK IS NOT ENGAGED YOUR CAR WILL ROLL AWAY. I HAVE DONE THE QUICK FIX ' BUT EVEN WITH ALL SORTS OF WAYS TO HELP ME REMEMBER I AM NOT COMFORTABLE.. THIS IS A SAFTEY ISSUE. WHEN I MENTIONED THE FIX TO SOA AS CAUSING A SAFETY ISSUE THEY SAID THAT WAS MY PROBLEM NOT THEIRS. REALLY? MY CAR IS S 2013 AND I WILL NOT COMMIT TO $700 AT THE DEALER WITHOUT KNOWING IF SOA WILL PAY.

ON TWO OCCASIONS WHILE TRAVELING OVER 70 MPH ON I-26 OUTSIDE OF COLUMBIA, SC THE VEHICLE'S ELECTRIC SYSTEM APPEARED TO MALFUNCTION AND VEHICLE DIED IMMEDIATELY. THE CLOCK, FUEL ECONOMY READINGS, AND RADIO SHUT OFF. THE VEHICLE STALLED AND HAD TO BE MANEUVERED TO THE SHOULDER OF THE INTERSTATE WITH NO ACCELERATION CAPABILITY OR POWER STEERING. THE VEHICLE WAS CAPABLE OF BEING RESTARTED. ON THE FIRST OCCASION, I RESTARTED THE VEHICLE AND THERE WERE NO FAULTS, ERRORS OR ANYTHING NOTED SO I CONTINUED TO DRIVE, ASSUMING IT WAS A ONE TIME EVENT. THE SECOND TIME, THE SAME PROBLEM HAPPENED AND THEN A CHECK ENGINE LIGHT APPEARED. FOLLOWING THE SECOND TIME, CHECK ENGINE ILLUMINATED, AS WELL AS THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT, AND THE CRUISE CONTROL IMAGE WAS BLINKING. PRIOR TO ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS, I WAS HAVING MAY ISSUES ENGAGING THE CRUISE CONTROL AND TRIED MULTIPLE BUTTON SEQUENCES TO MAKE CRUISE CONTROL WORK. I WAS ABLE TO GET VEHICLE TO AUTOPARTS STORE WHERE CODE READ P0021. TO GET SAFELY HOME, THE AUTOPARTS STORE RECOMMENDED THAT I DO A RESET BY DISCONNECTING BATTERY AND TURNING OFF ALL ELECTRONICS. THIS WORKED AND I HAVE DRIVEN SINCE WITHOUT THE SAME EVENT. THIS COULD EASILY HAVE BEEN FATAL AND MUST BE INVESTIGATED.

I IMMEDIATELY RETURNED CAR TO HAVE IT CHECKED BUT DEALERSHIP SAID OIL WAS FULL, PROBABLY FAULTY SENSOR AND SENT ME AWAY WITHOUT FULLY CHECKING THE CAR. CHECK OIL LIGHT WOULD INTERMITTENTLY LIGHT UP WHEN DRIVING LOCALLY. THEN ENGINE TAPPING SOUND AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STARTED A FEW WEEKS LATER WHILE DRIVING LOCALLY BUT INDICATOR LIGHTS WOULD TURN OFF FOR SHORT PERIODS IMMEDIATELY AFTER STARTING CAR, OR WHILE DRIVING UP OR DOWN STEEP INCLINES. LOCAL MECHANIC CONFIRMED THAT OIL PRESSURE WAS LOW AND RECOMMENDED TAKING IT BACK TO DEALERSHIP. ANOTHER DEALERSHIP IS NOW DISASSEMBLING THE ENGINE AND RECOMMENDING A NEW ENGINE AS OIL PRESSURE IS LOW AND NOT CIRCULATING PROPERLY AFTER VALVE SPRING RECALL REPAIR.

I TRIED TO BE NICE, BUT THEY SAID IT WILL TAKE 2-3 MONTHS TO FIX THE VALVE SPRINGS BECAUSE THEY ARE BEHIND. THEY OFFERED A ENTERPRISE RENTAL CAR WHICH IS KIND, BUT THE DRIVER OF THIS CAR IS 21 AND CAN'T USE THE RENTAL. THEY SAID THAT IS MY PROBLEM. LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT, I BOUGHT A CAR IN GOOD FAITH, PAID THE BANK AND GOT THE CAR SERVICED AS SUGGESTED AND NOW THIS IS MY PROBLEM. THIS IS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS. I ASKED FOR A LOANER THAT MY 21 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER CAN DRIVE AND THEY SAID THEY HAVE NONE. THEY SAID THEY ARE 50-60 CARS BEHIND IN THE CUE FOR THIS RECALL. IT'S A HUGE PROJECT AND VERY FEW MECHANICS CAN DO IT. SO I AM FACED WITH THE DILEMMA OF HAVING MY DAUGHTER DRIVE THIS RECALLED DANGEROUS VEHICLE FOR THE NEXT FEW MONTHS UNTIL SUBARU GETS THEIR ACT TOGETHER, OR HAVE HER DRIVE RENTAL ILLEGALLY, OR SELL IT. SUBARU HAS OFFERED $1000 OFF A NEW CROSSTREK IF WE TRADE THIS IN. $1000 IS A JOKE IN MY OPINION. THIS FEELS LIKE A SCAM. PLEASE LMK IF I HAVE ANY COURSE OF ACTION OTHER THAN THE TERRIBLE OPTIONS I CURRENTLY FACE. THANKS, RANDY

Summary of Complaint

SUBARU SENT OUT A RECALL FOR MY VEHICLE RECALL # WTY-84 IN THE LETTER THEY STATE THAT THE ENGINE MAY STALL WHILE DRIVING AND CAUSING AN INCREASED RISK OF A CRASH. WHEN I CALLED THE LOCAL DEALERSHIP THEY TOLD ME THE FIRST APPOINTMENT THEY HAVE TO RESOLVE THIS WAS ON FEB 12, 2020. FINDING THIS COMPLETELY UNSATISFACTORY FOR A COMPANY TO EXPECT ITS CUSTOMERS TO DRIVE A CAR THEY ARE TELLING US IS A DEATH TRAP. I CALLED MAIL OFFICE SUBARU TO ASK WHAT THE SITUATION WAS. THEY CLAIMED THAT ANOTHER DEALER IN MY AREA WAS ABLE TO SCHEDULE FOR THIS MARCH/APRIL THEY ALSO STATED THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO RENT A VEHICLE FREE OF CHARGE UNTIL MY CAR WAS REPAIRED IF I WAS NOT FEELING GOOD ABOUT DRIVING IT. I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY TOLD ME THAT WAS NOT THE CASE - THEY HAVE 100 PEOPLE ON THEIR WAITING LIST AND NO PARTS ARE EVEN AVAILABLE LET FROM SUBARU TO START FIXING ANY CARS - AND THEY DO NOT HAVE A PROGRAM TO GIVE ANY ONE RENTAL CARS WHILE WE WAIT. EVEN IF I NOW WANTED TO TRADE MY CAR I COULD NOT AS NO OTHER COMPANY IS TO BUY A CAR FROM ME THAT HAS A RECALL ON IT THAT CANNOT BE FIXED FOR A YEAR AND IS A DEATH TRAP.
