Subaru Forester 2010: Why is my exhaust pipe leaking water?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Oct 2019

As the car is running normally, with no other signs of a problem it’s most likely to be condensation in the exhaust system. If so it’s nothing to worry about. Changing the fuel won’t make any difference.

Subaru Forester 2010: Transmission problems

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Apr 2019

Switching the transmission and ECU clearly hasn’t fixed the problem, so look at sensors in the system, the wiring harness, and connections. I would suggest you take it to a Subaru dealer or an auto transmission and have them check it for you.

Answered by CarsGuide 23 May 2016

My choice would definitely be the Golf, for comfort and the range and economy on the highway. The XV is all right but not great, with a tiny boot, so the VW gets The Tick.

Subaru Forester 2010: Rear driveshaft making noises

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Jan 2016

Noises like this can be hard to trace, but you're obviously on the right track and will ultimately establish the cause. Taking the shaft out seems like a good course of action having worked out that it is possibly at the heart of the problem. Good luck.

Supplying own oil at service?

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Mar 2015

The dealer could refuse to do it. He’s got the oil on hand and he wants to make a dollar out of supplying it, that’s how he makes his living. If he doesn’t want to do it, then that’s his prerogative. Yours is to take it somewhere else, or change the oil yourself.
