Summary of Complaint

I own a Subaru Crosstrek XV Limited which I purchased new in November 2014. I was in a line of vehicles on a street waiting to enter a business parking lot and drive-thru. There was an incline from the street into the parking lot. The vehicle in front of me reached the top of the incline and turned right into the parking lot. With my foot remaining on the brake, I raised my foot slightly to allow my vehicle to move up the incline, my car suddenly accelerated and crashed into the bumper of the vehicle in front of me. The local police were contacted and a report was made. It was like when the cruise control is engaged and the engine given more power to climb an incline or hill. I don't know what caused this to happen, but am taking it to a local mechanic since the closest Subaru dealer is 75 miles away.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING STRAIGHT AT APPROXIMATELY 35 MPH ON A 34 DEGREE DAY ON A CLEAR ROAD, WE HEARD A LOUD NOISE FROM THE ROOF. WE PULLED OVER AND SAW THAT THE SUN ROOF HAD SPONTANEOUSLY RUPTURED AND EXPLODED OUTWARD. LUCKILY THE SLIDING DOOR TO THE SUN ROOF WAS CLOSED. WHEN EXAMINING THE SUN ROOF, THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING HITTING THE CAR. IN FACT THE ROOF RACK BAR WAS RIGHT OVER THE NEW "HOLE" IN THE GLASS SUNROOF AND WOULD HAVE PROTETED THE GLASS FROM A FALLING OBJECT. THE SUNROOF WAS PUCKERED "OUT" AND GLASS WAS SCATTERED ON THE EXTERIOR OF THE CAR NOT WITHIN THE SUNROOF COMPARTMENT. IT APPEAR TO HAVE SPONTANEOUSLY EXPLODED WITHOUT EXTERNAL DAMAGE.

I AM HAVING AN ISSUE WITH MY KEY NOT BEING RELEASED FROM THE IGNITION ONCE THE VEHICLE IS PUT INTO PARK AND TURNED OFF. I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS AND IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE CAUSED BY THE SHIFTER PLATE GUIDE NOT BEING INSTALLED CORRECTLY AT THE FACTORY ON MY VEHICLE MODEL AND CAN COST ANYWHERE FROM $350-$450 TO REPAIR AT A DEALER. AS THIS IS A KNOWN FACTORY ISSUE I BELIEVE THIS SHOULD BE COVERED UNDER A RECALL BY SUBARU. IT IS NOT ANYTHING THAT I AS AN OWNER COULD PREVENT THROUGH REGULAR MAINTENANCE. THIS COULD LEAD TO SAFETY ISSUES AS THE SHIFTER PLATE CONTINUES TO WEAR DUE TO INCORRECT INSTALLATION. THE ISSUE BEGAN IN JUNE 2020.

FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT (SHOWN NEXT TO CLOCK) WILL PERIODICALLY SWITCH FROM ON TO OFF WHILE THE SEAT IS OCCUPIED. THIS PROBLEM HAPPENS WHILE THE CAR IS IN MOTION, FREQUENTLY ON LONGER TRIPS. RESTARTING THE CAR DOES NOT FIX THE ISSUE, NOR DOES READJUSTING THE SEAT. OTHERS HAVE SUGGESTED THAT THIS MAY BE DUE TO MOISTURE SATURATING THE SENSOR, SUCH AS FROM A GYM SESSION OR HOT SUMMER ROADTRIP. THE SENSOR WILL GO BACK TO NORMAL AFTER A DAY OR MORE.

I WAS DRIVING THE CAR WHEN ALL THE LIGHTS ON DASH COME ON. CONSTANT JERKING/BUCKING OF THE CAR WITHOUT INCREASING PRESSURE TO THE GAS PEDDLE. METER RPMS INDICATOR NEEDLE IS ERRATIC MOVING BACK AND FORTH WHILE THE ENGINE REVS. THE MPG NEEDLE GOES FROM PLUS TO MINUS ERRATICALLY ALSO. AT THIS TIME THE CAR IS NOT DEPENDABLE. I HAVE BROUGHT THE CAR TO GRANITE SUBARU 4 TIMES FOR THE SAME COMPLAINT. THEY SAY THEY HAVE USED THE DIAGNOSTIC METER TO DETERMINE THE PROBLEM BUT IT STILL REMAINS, NOW EVEN WORSE. I HAVE DISCUSSED THE PROBLEM WITH A ENGINEER AND 2 AUTO MECHANICS WHO FEEL THE PROBLEM IS WITH THE COMPUTER. I MENTIONED THIS TO GRANITE SUBARU AND WAS TOLD THAT WAS NOT THE PROBLEM. MY PLAN AT THIS TIME IS TO BRING MY CAR TO AUTOZONE AND HAVE THEM EVALUATE MY CAR. I AM HOPING TO GET A LIST OF ERROR CODES TO BRING TO SUBARU WITH THE HOPE THAT THE 5TH TIME WILL BE MY LAST. I HAVE RECEIPTS FOR WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED SO FAR BUT DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO UPLOAD THEM AND SEND WITH THIS REPORT. PLEASE SEND ADDRESS AND I WILL MAKE COPIES AND SEND. THANK YOU.

Summary of Complaint

I BACKED OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY, INTO THE ROAD. WHEN I DROVE AWAY, NO FASTER THAT 25 MPH, I NOTICED THAT ALL THE WARNING LIGHTS ON MY DASH WERE ILLUMINATED. ALARMED, I PROMPTLY RETURNED MY CAR TO THE DRIVEWAY AND SHUT IT OFF. I HAD TRAVELED NO FURTHER THAN 100 YARDS. WONDERING IF MAYBE IT WAS A FLUKE, I TRIED TO TURN THE CAR ON AGAIN, BUT THE CAR WAS COMPLETELY UNRESPONSIVE. I CALLED AAA TO HAVE IT TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP. AAA'S DIAGNOSTIC CODES WERE: P0851, P0705, P0700. ONLINE RESEARCH SHOWED THAT THESE RELATE TO THE TRANSMISSION. FURTHER SEARCHES BROUGHT UP A FORBES ARTICLE ABOUT SUBARU'S CHOICE TO EXTEND WARRANTEES ON KNOWN TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS INSTEAD ISSUING A RECALL--SO AS TO SAVE MONEY. WHEN I ASKED SUBARU SERVICE ABOUT THE CODES, THEY CALLED THEM "PHANTOM CODES"--HOWEVER I NOTED THAT THE REPAIR WORK WAS COVERED UNDER WARRANTEE--INDICATING IT RELATED TO THE TRANSMISSION--HARDLY A "PHANTOM". I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE BEEN SO CLOSE TO HOME WHEN MY TRANSMISSION FAILED--TO HAVE NOT BEEN ON A REMOTE ROAD TRIP WITH MY KIDS WHERE THERE'S NO CELL SERVICE, OR DRIVING THROUGH A SKETCHY NEIGHBORHOOD ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK, OR TRYING TO GET MY HUSBAND TO THE ER WITH ANAPHYLAXIS FROM A BEE STING (ALL REAL SCENARIOS I'VE BEEN IN, THANKFULLY WITH A FUNCTIONING CAR). WHEN SUBARU CHOOSES TO LET CARS FAIL FOR A KNOWN PROBLEM AND RELY ON EXTENDED WARRANTEES INSTEAD OF RECALLING THEM BEFORE THEY FAIL, THERE ARE A MYRIAD LIFE-THREATENING POTENTIALITIES. ANYTHING LESS THAN A RECALL IS NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF SUBARU.

Summary of Complaint

I HAVE EXPERIENCED ROUGH IDLING WITH MY 2014 CROSSTREK LIMITED FOR ABOUT A YEAR. DURING THIS TIME MY CHECK OIL LIGHT HAS COME ON TWICE. I BROUGHT MY CAR INTO THE DEALERSHIP IN FAYETTEVILLE, AR WHERE THEY BEGAN THE OIL CONSUMPTION TEST PROCESS. THUS FAR THE DEALERSHIP HAS FLUSHED MY COOLANT AND OIL AND REPLACING O-RINGS AND VALVES, REPLACED MORE O-RINGS AND MY AC COMPRESSOR, AND COMPLETED FOUR OIL CONSUMPTION TESTS EACH TIME I DROVE 1,200 MILES AND CONSUMED 8OZ OIL (10.1OZ IS CONSIDERED FAILING). MY CAR CONTINUES TO ROUGH IDLE TO THE POINT THAT I CANNOT LET IT IDLE INSIDE THE GARAGE WITHOUT SHAKING THE WALLS INSIDE THE HOUSE. THE ROUGH IDLE HAPPENS ALL THE TIME, WHEN I FIRST START THE CAR, AFTER I HAVE DRIVEN FOR A WHILE, AND DURING ROUTINE TRIPS AROUND TOWN, ANYTIME THE CAR IS IDLING. THE DEALERSHIP HAS ADVISED ME THAT ROUGH IDLE AND OIL CONSUMPTION IS NORMAL WITH CROSSTREKS AND NOTHING SHOWS ON THE COMPUTER SCANNER. THEY REFUSE TO DO A MECHANICAL CHECK TO FURTHER DIAGNOSE THE ISSUE.

I HAD THE ISSUE CHECKED BY A MECHANIC - FUSES WERE CHANGED AND CHECKED, BUT THE PROBLEM PERSISTS. I DID AN INTERNET SEARCH WHICH REVEALED OTHER DRIVERS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. I SAW A RECALL IN AUSTRALIA WHICH: VIBRATION OVER AN EXTENDED PERIOD COULD RESULT IN A METAL PLATE WITHIN THE STEERING COLUMN WEARING AWAY THE WIRING INSULATION. THE SHORT CIRCUIT COULD DISABLE CONTROL OF THE WIPERS, HEADLIGHTS, HORN, DRIVER'S AIRBAG AND FEATURES ACTUATED THROUGH THE MULTI-FUNCTION STEERING WHEEL, SUCH AS CRUISE CONTROL, AUDIO SYSTEM AND MOBILE PHONE CONNECTIVITY. THE ISSUE COULD ALSO SHORT OUT THE FUSE FOR THE ENGINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM'S ECU SHUTTING OFF THE ENGINE.

Summary of Complaint

THIS LETTER IS TO DOCUMENT AN INCIDENT THAT OCCURRED ON 6/27/19 AT APPROX. 2 PM EST IN DANBURY, CT ON I84. I WAS PROCEEDING WEST ON I84 IN MY 2014 SUBARU CROSSTREK WHEN THE VEHICLE SUFFERED A CATASTROPHIC INTERNAL FAILURE OF THE CONTINUOUSLY VARIABLE TRANSMISSION (CVT) ASSEMBLY, RESULTING IN THE LOSS OF WHEEL ROTATION (WHEELS LOCKING UP) WHICH LASTED FOR ALMOST 2 SECONDS. I WAS ABLE TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE AND, WHILE ALMOST STRUCK BY A TRACTOR-TRAILER THAT WAS FOLLOWING ME IN THE CENTER LANE, WAS ABLE TO EXIT THE HIGHWAY. THE VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO COLONIAL SUBARU IN DANBURY, CT WHERE IT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A COMPLETE INTERNAL FAILURE OF THE TRANSMISSION REQUIRING A REPLACEMENT. I THEN DISCOVERED THAT THE FAILURE OF THE TRANSMISSION ON THIS VEHICLE WAS A KNOWN ISSUE, THE SUBJECT OF A WARRANTY EXTENSION BY SUBARU OF AMERICA (HTTPS://TINYURL.COM/Y9BOZWGD) AND THAT MY VEHICLE WAS ONE OF THE AFFECTED VEHICLES. MY CONCERN IS THAT GIVEN THE SEVERE CONSEQUENCE WHEN THIS FAILURE OCCURS, THIS SHOULD BE THE SUBJECT OF A FACTORY RECALL, TO PREVENT A CATASTROPHIC LOSS OF WHEEL ROTATION AND SUBSEQUENT LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL. THIS IS WHAT OCCURRED IN MY EXPERIENCE. IF I WERE A LESS EXPERIENCED DRIVER IT A HIGH PROBABLE THAT A LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL WOULD HAVE OCCURRED. TRAVELING DOWN A MAJOR, CROWDED INTERSTATE WITH A CAR THAT SUFFERED A SEVERE ENGINEERING FAILURE COULD HAVE LED TO ROADWAY FATALITIES. I REQUEST THAT NHTSA OPEN AN INVESTIGATION INTO SUBARU OF AMERICA'S HANDLING OF THIS MATTER AND CONSIDER MANDATING THAT SOA REPLACE TRANSMISSIONS IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES. THE MILEAGE ON MY VEHICLE WHEN THE EVENT OCCURRED WAS 114,000 WHICH DEMONSTRATES THAT THE WARRANTY EXTENSION TO 100,000 MILES IS INSUFFICIENT TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE SINCE THE PROBLEM CAN OCCUR BEYOND THE 100,000 THRESHOLD. I BELIEVE THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF A CVT FAILURE WARRANTS A RECALL NOTICE.

ON INTERSTATE I-80 (SPEED LIMIT 75 MPH), I WAS DRIVING THE CAR USING CRUISE CONTROL AND THE CAR SUDDENLY POWERED OFF, WITH MANY DASHBOARD LIGHTS ON (THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, VEHICLE DYNAMICS CONTROL LIGHT, AND HILL START ASSIST LIGHT). I BARELY MANAGED TO PULL THE CAR OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY AND TRIED TO RESTART THE CAR SEVERAL TIMES, BUT IT WOULDN'T START (THOUGH THE STARTER ITSELF WAS WORKING). FINALLY, THE CAR WAS TOWED. I WAS REALLY LUCKY THAT THE CARS BEHIND ME MANAGED TO AVOID ME. THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED. IN FEBRUARY 2019, THE CAR SUDDENLY STOPPED WITH THREE DASHBOARD LIGHTS ON (CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, VEHICLE DYNAMICS CONTROL LIGHT, HILL START ASSIST LIGHT). THIS WAS ENTIRELY THE SAME BEHAVIOR AS DESCRIBED ABOVE. IN THIS CASE I WAS ABLE TO RESTART THE CAR, BUT THE HYBRID ASPECT OF THE CAR DIDN'T WORK (THE BATTERY WAS NOT CHARGED, AND I COULD NOT USE CRUISE CONTROL), BUT I WAS ABLE TO USE THE CAR. IN JANUARY 2019, THE VEHICLE WOULDN'T START AND REPLACED BOTH BATTERIES (THE START BATTERY AND HYBRID BATTERY).

Summary of Complaint

OVERLY SENSITIVE FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG SENSOR. AFTER WORKING OUT SIDE IN THE SUMMER, THE SWEAT FROM A PASSENGERS BODY WILL TURN OFF THE AIRBAG, EVEN IF IT WASN'T MUCH SWEAT. DEALER TOLD ME IT WAS A COMMON PROBLEM AND THERE WAS NO FIX. MOST SUMMER DAYS IN TEXAS I HAVE NO PASSENGER AIRBAGS DUE TO THE SWEAT FROM WALKING TO MY CAR. ALSO AIRBAG WILL TURN ON WITH AS LITTLE AS 2-5 LBS OF PRESSURE. THESE ERRORS HAPPEN IN ALL PHASES OF DRIVING.
