2006 Subaru Legacy Problems

Engine -- Verified

Front engine oil leaks can develop from the camshaft seal and the crankshaft front seal. If one or more seals require replacement, it may be wise to consider replacing the timing belt as well. These seals are commonly inspected and replaced as needed as part of a timing belt service.

Brakes -- Verified

There is a technical service bulletin on the ABS control module. It is replaceable without having to replace the entire anti-lock brake hydraulic unit. Previously, the ABS control module was only available as a complete assembly that included the hydraulic unit.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

In areas where salt is used on the roads, slush containing road salt can splash through a gap in the fuel tank protector resulting in corrosion of the brake lines. This corrosion may lead to brake fluid leakage resulting in reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and leaking brake lines will be replaced. Anti-corrosion rustproofing wax will be applied to all recalled vehicles.

2006 Subaru Legacy Reviews

My 06 Legacy GT Limited just broke down due to the bearings in the turbo. With only 77K miles and well maintained I found it a bit discouraging when my mechanic told me the news. I have owned 3 Subaru's and while I love them when they're running great I have had my share of problems; head gaskets, lots of bearings, driveshafts and front suspension problems. And none of it has been cheap.

We bought our Subaru Legacy in 2006 and have had no problems with 53,000 miles on it so far, except for replacing two headlights and a fog light. We do regular oil changes and put new tires on it this year. I love the way it handles the roads and though we don't get much snow in Missouri, my daughter who lives in Idaho owns a Forester which she drives 45 miles to work over a mountain pass every day in the winter with no problems. Her experience inspired us to go Subaru, and we haven't been sorry.
