Subaru Repair Q&AA guide to repairs, service, and maintenance costs for your Subaru Subaru Maintenance Sticking to Subaru’s recommended service and maintenance preserves your vehicle’s crucial parts and maintains its value. Despite this, some parts might still fail because of factors ranging from everyday wear to weather conditions. Knowing the warning signs of an impending issue will help return your vehicle to the road ASAP. Here are some of the likeliest problems you might see:
The air conditioning (A/C) condenser might go bad in some 2017 Subaru Foresters, which can cause problems ranging from hot air blowing out of the vents to complete A/C failure. Depending on the exact issue, fixing the problem can require recharging the A/C system or replacing the faulty condenser.
Some 2000 through 2018 Subaru Outback owners have reported that their vehicle’s cooling system can fail at the 100,000 mile mark. There are several possible causes for the problem, including coolant leaks, radiator failure, or a faulty thermostat. Subaru has extended its warranty to 8 years/100,000 miles to cover this problem.
Some older Subaru Impreza models manufactured before 2013 can use up excessive amounts of engine oil. Usually, replacing the piston rings and rod bearings will solve the problem, although on some occasions, the entire engine needed a complete rebuild.
