Pinging in liberties

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Apr 2006

ACCORDING to Subaru there are no problems with pinging if you use good-quality 98 RON fuel in unmodified engines. A few primary turbos have been replaced because of seizure of the exhaust control valve that redirects exhaust gases/energy to the secondary turbo. Make sure you use good-quality fuel that is fresh. Mobil and BP are two that appear to have a decent shelf life.

Too much liberty

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Jun 2004

THE Falcon had a reputation for wandering on the highway, which some people find disconcerting; Clearly you don't, so the Subaru's wanderlust must be pronounced. I assume you have checked the basics of wheel alignment and tyre pressure to make sure they aren't contributing to the problem. Try switching the tyres from side to side and see if the problem persists.
