  3. Model Year 2018 and Newer XV premium with eyesight, ready to buy tomorrow or Tuesday question on $

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    Before people get too fixed on the invoice price and holdbacks, you should also look at the final out-the-door/on-the-road price for the car. There might be extra fees and charges that the dealer slips in as 'part of the deal'. Personally, I only work on the final OTD/OTR price as it's the...
  4. Model Year 2018 and Newer 2020 Impreza updated. For Japan Only? Will the Crosstrek benefit?

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    The biggest improvement I see for MY20 for the Crosstrek is the introduction of.... the new WRX to the current Global Platform which should allow for the various 3rd party/aftermarket accessory markers to release product for the Global Platform which should fit on the current generation of...

    No wise-*** remarks or comments here. Just glad to see you back.
  6. Model Year 2018 and Newer Brake pads and rotor resurfacing costs at the dealer

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    I agree with you on not replacing them as many aftermarket rotors aren't as good as the originals. However, I do disagree with you about "shops do it to play it safe". I believe most shops do it for the following reasons: 1. People now expect that to happen so if you don't replace them, some...
  7. Model Year 2012 to 2017 Brakes Are Always Harder After Every Subaru Maintenance - Is This Normal?

    Suspension and Brakes
    Topping off the brake fluid shouldn't have anything to do with as long as there was enough in the system in the first place. And if there isn't, then there's a leak. Brake feel typically has to do with how well the system transfers force to the brake pads. If there is air in the system, that...
  8. Applies to All Model Years I was told that if you need one new tire you may need to replace all

    Wheels and Tires
    Personally, I always believe that if you have to wait for the AWD to detect slip and then grip, it might not detect that slip or detect it late when you actually need it. I always find it funny that those manufacturers that use the slip and grip system always say that they do it for improved...
  9. Applies to All Model Years 2020 crosstrek xti

    Subaru XV General Discussion Forum
    There has to be some problem as Subaru USA/Corporate sees it as they just don't do it. They also don't import models like the Levorg which would sell nor do they have available for purchase various options/accessories that are only available to the JDM.
  10. Lighting Fuse?

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    You mean this - https://www.powerprobe.com/? Also, which ground was it specifically? The reason why I'm asking is that these cars are all pretty much mass-produced so many of these types of assembly issues may show up hundreds of cars and it would be good to have that location documented for...

    Like most Japanese manufacturers of all types of goods, Subaru has a whole bunch of turbo models for the Japanese market. The problem is that they might not want to additional cost of supporting a turbo outside of Japan as it would require a lot more training to the techs already out there as...

    That may have been what got those two to get it ON that one faithful night! :)
  13. Model Year 2018 and Newer Unexpected results with K&N air filter

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Then I would look at cleaning the various sensors as other people have installed K&N filters (myself included) and have not seen what you saw in terms of performance over time.
  14. Model Year 2018 and Newer Unexpected results with K&N air filter

    Engine and Drivetrain
    ECUs aren't meant to understand large changes in conditions over a short period of time - they are only meant to change slowly. Take an air filter getting dirty over time. That dirt deposits on the filter slowly and thus slowly reduce the airflow through the filter over time. The ECU can and...
  15. Model Year 2012 to 2017 No Battery Discussions ?

    Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Actually, heat is the worst for a battery as it does the most damage which is why most car OEMs supply the battery with a heat shield which no-one, including most mechanics, understands what it's used for. The problem with cold is that it makes a poor battery perform worse as the cold slows...

    Most of the expense of any new engine is in the development and troubleshooting of the first generation of that engine - ie fixing leaks and other performance issues that may come up. The FA20 is now past that stage while it was expensive develop, the cost to build the engine won't be that much...

    DIY and 3rd party Maintenance, How To's & Tools
    Welcome to the forum! One part that may be overlooked is the air exhaust vents generally found under the rear bumper cover just behind the rear wheels... Another might be the trailer hitch mounting holes for the wiring. PS. Don't forget to document what you did here so others can comment and...

    Did someone turn the lights down low, played a bit of soft music, and served up the right vintage of gasoline a few months back? :)
  20. Car runs good only after battery disconnection

    Fuel Economy / Alternate Fuels
    I would still point to the LPG conversion as the engine has been modified to accept both.
