Subaru Impreza 2006: Any tips for selling used? What price should I ask?
Your asking price seems a little high, even though the car appears from what you have told us to be a good one. But be patient, and leave it advertised as you have done for another week or two before considering lowering the price a little if you still haven’t had any responses. If you're looking for a quick sale check out our price and spec guide here.Show more
What's a safe first car for $10,000?
The Impreza is a good choice with all-wheel drive safety and a raft of airbags, so too is the Corolla, but you could also consider the Mazda3. It's best to stick with the recognized Japanese brands, European brands can be appealing, but they tend to be more troublesome and more expensive to service.Show more
Heavily worn carpet in Subaru
Assessing what is "normal" wear and tear on things like carpets is always difficult, but for the carpet to be wearing heavily after four years is not what I would call normal. I would also agree that the dealer should have told you they were fitting non-genuine parts to your car when they advised you to replace them. Perhaps the dealer was thinking they were doing you a favour by fitting cheaper wiper blades and saving you some money, but I doubt that Subaru would be happy with the dealer for doing that. I would approach Subaru's customer assistance people and argue your case for having the carpets and floor mats replaced, and at the same request that they have the non-genuine wiper blades replaced by genuine parts.Show more
I'm Starting To Worry
WE CONTACTED Subaru with your question and asked for their response, which was: ``We recommend the use of fuel additive SA718 every 6000km to prevent flaking of carbon in the combustion chamber that can be caused by additives in some brands of petrol. Typically what happens is after a short run, usually just moving the car on a Sunday afternoon to wash it, the additive in the fuel soaks on the carbon deposit in the combustion chamber and causes it to flake off. Because of the characteristic of a boxer engine with its cylinders lying on their side, the flaking carbon falls onto the seat of the open exhaust valve. When the engine is cranked to start the carbon particle prevents the closing of the exhaust valve. This means no engine compression and therefore the engine doesn't start. The spark plug is soaked in fuel and this also prevents starting even if the carbon particle becomes dislodged during the cranking. If the engine starts it often runs roughly for a while as the excess fuel is burnt off. The additive that we recommend, SA718, acts to counter the additive in the fuel and stops the carbon from flaking.''Show more
