panel lights (brake .light & battery light). stay on. all other functions work, then the next day everything is normal.

work everyday on I-95 I was informed that I need new tires on the front of my car. I don't understanding how I could need front tires. I also don't follow how the tire are worn in the same place with no pull in the starring or any indication that the tires were worn. My question is how is this possible? I never hit a large pot hold and if I did why is the wear not worst on the side that I hit a pot hold on? I have no tread on both tires exactly in the same location and thickness. I also don't understand with wear of the tire why the last service check which was around 35,000 -7500, The tires were checked and had no problem. Q could this be a differential problem???

I have taken my 09 Subaru Outback to two mechanics and have heard from both of them that I need a new engine due to a bad bearing that causes a knock around 4k RPM. They could not tell me why it happened, only that the current state requires a new engine. What is the labor to replace the engine, and what is the parts cost? Is it cheaper for me to buy the engine and then give it to the shop? Thanks

I live at the end of 2 miles of very rough gravel road. My Outback is making a lot of noise underneath. Since lubricating zerk fittings are a thing of the past, what do I do?

We just had to replace the turn signal, alternator, and radiator. Now the transmission has died. Is this worth replacing? The car has about 120,000 miles on it. We've put in about 1500 and it'll cost another 1800. What else is left to go wrong?

What are the chances I will have the same issues and expense others have had if I buy a 2006 outback, 4 cylinder, 43000 miles? They will replace head gasket and certify the car.

Twice now have had a melted spot on my shifter console. Looks like something hot drug across it but not. Concern is fire hazard. Are there wires running under this plate that might be getting hot when using cigarette receptacle in glove box for GPS etc.. Is not hot during driving with nothing in use. Puzzling!

Are there diagrams or instructions anywhere on the internet to pull apart the tailgate to get to the camera?

I get a blue square on my review mirror and then it turns off completely...

Tried:
Plugs
Air filter
Oil and filter
Sea Foam in 2 tanks of fuel
Coil
Fuel filter

It happened for the first time after filling tank with regular unleaded fuel.

Catalytic converter and ERG? Or, bad fuel?

Car has 142,000 well maintained.

I have a limited addition outback 2.5 4 cylinder. Is it a non interference engine?

My Headlight on switch doesn't sound an alarm if left on, and I forgot and left them on overnight. The problem is that both low beam bulbs have burned out. A friend and I tried switching relay fuses from high to low to see if any changes but no. Do you have any suggestions?

When the ABS light comes on I have a power surge to lights - making it impossible to drive car at night, a very powerful power surge. Does not happen all the time but is happening more and more help!

Please base this estimate on a rear engine cradle from a previously owned car not a new cradle. Thank you
