    Got my letter Friday and my dealer will be replacing in a week. But doesn't this seem to be a pretty sketchy reason for a switch to fail (in the link below)? Silicon dioxide corrosion from consumer...

    Heh, I'm used to using a sort of drain tube on my FJ Cruiser. It has a lousy canister filter setup from hell, not a spin on setup, and you have to remove a small plug at the bottom of the canister,...

    I've got a 2017 Crosstrek. The valve does not protrude below the actual plastic shield, but it does stick out from the pan at an angle. That valve is narrow and made of brass, which can break off...

    I notice that the pump usually starts up about 6 hours after driving. My Toyota does the same thing.

    Thanks for linking to this version. How is it working for you?

    I got my dash gauge to display 43 MPG one time. Actual was 39.6 MPG. But that was on the freeway at 65 miles per hour on cruise control at 60 degrees F with a stiff 30 mile an hour tailwind all the...

    Oh, that answers that. Yeah, it only happens after I've been on the freeway for about an hour come to think of it. It's not very visible of a reminder though. I only notice it f I happen to glance...

    I tried waiting for 5 minutes one time before I reached in and wiggled it. As soon as it gets wiggled, the stick is discovered. This port also has a nasty habit of corrupting flash memory sticks. 2...

    ['12-'17] MPG readout displays an occasional glitch

    I have my dash meter set to read in MPG. Sometimes and very rarely and only when I'm driving down the freeway, the readout will suddenly blink out, then flash the number 1.0 for a bit, then return to...

    You're lucky the mice only stuffed your airbox with insulation. But you may want to check over any exposed wiring under the hood. My brother had rodents chew up the wiring in his Toyota Tundra. It...

    The oil filter, yes. A dream to change. The actual oil, not so much. That big drain plug lets out a fire hose of oil as soon as the last thread disengages. If you don't get your hands out of the way...

    If it was a sensor, I'd think the liquid it was sensing would be now long gone and there'd be a major problem right now. If it was an O2 sensor, you'd probably hear some exhaust noise from the hole...

    My Crosstrek only has 6000 miles on it and most of it wasn't driving at night. The OEM bulbs should still be a full brightness. And I know the IIHS gave this year of Crosstrek a poor headlight rating...

    I looked into one of those, even bought one. But I decided against it. People have complained that it loosens over time because you can't torque it tight enough (it's brass). It also sticks down...

    My 2016 Crosstrek's CVT behaved just like the OP's when it was brand new. Now that it's gotten a few thousand miles under it's belt, it's working much more smoothly.

    It looks like that's the case. Your son is in luck. Better yet, have him take it to a Subaru dealer and have the CVT fluid changed. It may stave off the inevitable.
