Subaru Impreza Problems
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
Subaru Impreza Questions
I own a 1993 Subaru Impreza L Sedan and if I put my car in park, the shift will get stuck and I have to fight with it in order to get it out. Does anyone know what would cause it to get stuck?
Thank you in advance!
I usually take care of things myself but the problems I have now require tools I do not have. Basically the engine needs to be lifted to replace one leaky seal in my 93 Impreza. I do not want to spend a lot of money on this car. Any suggestions?
After around one minute on idle, rpm is going down slowly and then stop, no light appers before stopping, just like if i turn the key to off... And after that when i trying to start the engine...it's start then notting, it can take up to a minute to restart (10 try) and after it's start...
Subaru Impreza Recalls
This recall applies only to vehicles equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Mazda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.
On 2010-2013 Subaru models equipped with an automatic transmission and Audiovox accessory remote start system, if the key fob is dropped it may begin randomly transmitting a request to start the engine, causing the engine to unexpectedly start and run for up to 15 minutes. The engine may continue to start and stop until the battery in the fob goes dead or until the vehicle runs out of fuel. If the vehicle is parked in an enclosed area, there is a risk of carbon monoxide build-up which may cause asphyxiation. Original equipment keyless entry fobs integrated on the vehicle key are not affected. Dealers will replace the affected key fobs to correct this concern.
The front lower control arms may break at the hanger brackets due to corrosion. This corrosion is commonly a result of the hanger bracket being exposed to salty conditions, such as roads where salt is used as a snow melting agent. A broken control arm can result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected control arms and rustproof or replace them as necessary. The Subaru recall number is WVX-34.
Subaru Impreza Reviews
Car is fun to drive, carries a lot of stuff, and is quicker than most other cars out there...Need I say more?
No major or minor problems / issues. A little noisy at higher speeds. Surprising low-end torque... takes hills with ease.
Over all good car. But the manual transmission doesnt go into reverse sometimes the first time I try putting it in first. Besides that awesome car.
