Brand new turbo, twice! Shop says no oil pressure prob. Subaru dealer says it does, causing turbo to go out.
Car went in to dealers shop to get checked due to engine misfires, struggling performance, lots of different error codes. They said it was bad fuel, put an additive thru tank and returned car. The car then had a meltdown a few days later and all 60 error codes are displaying. Second dealer shop d...
In a crash that deploys the passenger front air bag, the inflator of the air bag can rupture, causing metal debris to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator free of charge to correct the concern.
In certain states, where salt is used to de-ice the roads, corrosion can occur at the four-way joint connector of the hydraulic braking system leading to a brake fluid leak. This fluid loss can result in longer than expected stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will apply an anti-corrosion wax to the four-way joint connector area to correct this concern. Some vehicles previously recalled of this concern may not have been repaired correctly. In addition, owners of vehicles outside of the affected states may request this recall be performed. Please contact your dealer to determine exactly how this recall affects your vehicle.
Moisture sensitive airbag system components may deteriorate in humid climate regions, causing an increase in inflator pressure which ruptures when passenger airbags are deployed. Injury can result from inflator parts striking an occupant. Dealers will replace affected airbag inflators to correct this concern. Subaru is the manufacturer of Saabs affected by this recall. This recall supersedes Subaru recall 14V-471.

The shop that changed oil and serviced AC says this is because of bad bearing in front differential and the transmission has to come off to replace this bearing and has referred me to a tra...
Bought my "Beanie" new in 2001. At 55,000 miles the front end differential destructed which required repair and a new transmission. Cost me over $3,000. Subaru doesn't stand behind their product nor does the dealer. They would not pay for the repairs. Even though I had the car at the dealership asking them to check out the car because of some front end noise. They weren't able to diagnose ...
