Subaru Liberty 2009 Problems

No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Subaru Liberty 2009 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.

Is it worth replacing the engine on a '09 Subaru Liberty?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Oct 2017

In going order it’s worth $7000-$9000 depending on condition, so you have to consider if it’s worth spending $5000 on it to get it back on the road. It’s eight years old, has done 180,000 km, it’s probably best to sell it to a wrecker if you can get $2000 for it.

The only thing you can do is put pressure on the dealer and Subaru to sort the problem out. Perhaps other owners can let us know if they have the same issue with their cars, and what they were told by their dealers.

Under control

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Feb 2009

THE old practice was to avoid maintaining the engine at a constant speed during the run-in period, but it's not needed with modern engines. We asked Subaru for an opinion and they agreed the advice you received was misguided. You can use cruise control without damaging your engine.
