2006 Subaru Impreza Problems

Engine Misfire Due to Failed Spark Plug Wires

Sometimes the Check Engine Light illuminates because the computer detects misfires. Subaru released an improved spark plug wire set to solve the problem. The ignition coil should also be inspected for carbon tracks or short circuits between the contacts

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Front O2 Sensor

The front oxygen (air fuel ratio) sensor element may develop a crack, causing the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Subaru has recalled certain models to replace sensors that may fail. The Subaru service program number is WXW-80, this is not a government mandated recall.

 

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Knock Sensor

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because of a failed knock sensor. Although the sensor often tests okay, it can fail intermittently, while the vehicle is being driven.

2006 Subaru Impreza Reviews

No major or minor problems / issues. A little noisy at higher speeds. Surprising low-end torque... takes hills with ease.
hard to find a fast 4dr that has this much value for the money it takes to buy it and maintain it.
Car is fun to drive, carries a lot of stuff, and is quicker than most other cars out there...Need I say more?
