Is Subaru obliged to fix this oil issue?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Aug 2016

The fact is we don't have the same clout as Americans do, that's because our consumer laws are weak. Your best course of action in the short term is to talk to your dealer about the problem, and have them do an oil consumption test to establish the actual oil usage. If the test proves your assertion that it's using too much oil you will then have good grounds on which to ask Subaru to do something about it.

Best fuel efficient city car for off road?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Apr 2016

The Suzuki is the best bet, by far. Avoid the older Audi, it's likely to be too costly in terms of service and repairs, the Impreza is a good car, so too is the Liberty, but the best is the Suzuki.

Subaru Liberty clunking

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Sep 2013

I have had reports in the past from owners of other vehicles, different brands, complaining about a clunk at low speed and that their dealers have told them that it was the ABS self-checking. Now, I have never experienced the clunk myself on any of the many cars I have driven in the course of my work in testing vehicles, and I have always dismissed it as BS from the dealer. But I have asked Subaru to tell me if it the dealer is correct or not.

It's worth checking and easy to find out if it is the source of his annoying rattle. Another reader with the same problem found that it was the tailgate latching mechanism and a little bit of grease fixed it.
