  1. Model Year 2018 and Newer Chirping from AC fan

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Just to add a thought. When I first bought the the car, the A/C was not blowing cold air. It was pretty terrible in my opinion compared to other cars. When I brought it up, people said it was because it’s a budget car. I thought to myself, 20K+ car is not a budget car but I said cool and moved...
  2. Model Year 2018 and Newer Noise coming from passenger side

    Thanks for that information. Unfortunately, where I live, the weather is already warming up and it stopped making that noise. I may have to wait until next winter to make that noise and I may have to pay out of my pocket since I’m already at 34k.

    Thanks for the update. So it appears that battery, fan blower motor, and cvt is not the cause of this issue. I’ve posted several videos on YouTube as well and others have commented on this issue.. I think this is an isolated issue with 2018 crosstrek models.

    I’m not sure how different it is to just check the battery or to completely replace it. I’m thinking maybe the battery might not give enough juice to all the electrical compartments in the car which is causing the noise but that may be stretching it.

    Did swapping battery solve the problem?

    This is my 6th time going in and my dealer and I are still trying to figure out where the noise is coming from. First 3 times, the car wouldn’t make the noise when I was there. 4th time, I left my car overnight to replicate the noise. They did hear the main noise but they only put some foam...

    Update: so I just got my car back from my dealer with blower motor fixed. The chirping noise is gone when I turn on the ac/ heater but the the main noise that we are talking about is still loud and clear. I really wished that it was the blower motor that made the noise but I guess that’s not...

    Will definitely let you know. I have the same experiences with you regarding when it makes noise, doesn’t make any noise when I get to the dealers, and just about everything else. I recorded about 30 videos to make sure its not happening once in a while.. It’s not like we are all just sitting...

    That’s really good because it eliminates potential noise from the cvt! My dealer just called that the parts came in. I’m gonna get the motor blower replaced tomorrow and I actually have to travel 6 hours this weekend so I will really be able to see if the noise stops or not.

    Thank you guys for also comfirming. From looking into forums, internet, YouTube and reddit, it seems like this noise comes from 2018 crosstrek with the cvt. Starting last week, now I have a new noise along with the original noise. The new noise only appears when I use my heater at a lower speed...

    Hey Qat, Yeah that’s the noise but it gets worse time to time. I initially thought it was from the ac system but it makes that noise even when I turn the ac off..

    So I have been having this issue for 3 months now and went to the 2 dealers 4 times and during 4th visit, they finally heard the noise. Left my car with the dealer overnight. When I got it back, They stopped hearing the noise but when I left the dealer with my car, started hearing it after 2...

    Sorry, the first picture is deceiving because of the shadow. It’s basically empty. It’s like a puddle left on the surface of the overflow.
  14. Model Year 2018 and Newer CVT Issue

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Does that with my 2018 crosstrek cvt. I thought it was just my car but it seems like it’s like that for all cvt Subaru’s or probably even all cvt’s in General.
  15. Model Year 2018 and Newer Engine Coolant empty at 26000

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Thank you guys for all the replies.. I may just pour the coolant myself and assess it first.. I also noticed that the pipe is loose(?). Is it supposed to be lose or is it missing a part? Here are some pictures The first picture, basically the coolant is in the absolute bottom of the...

    hello, I just had a question about my crosstrek 18 premium. I use it as a daily driver for my work and go on weekend road trips once every 2 months or so. I don’t do any off road with this car. So today, when I was checking my car out, I noticed that the engine coolant is beyond low, close...
  17. Model Year 2018 and Newer Cabin Air Filter Replacement

    Dealer Service Problems, Maintenance, Warranty, TS
    Just a quick note. If you are changing to OEM cabin air filter, make sure it's under $15 or so. A dealer near my house told me that it was $40 dollars for the part and I just called the other dealer nearby and I bought it for $12. They said Crosstrek 18 has cheaper cabin air filter than the...
  18. Model Year 2018 and Newer CVT Issue

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I own a Crosstrek Premium 18 CVT. I had the car for 6 months now and have around 15k miles on it. From my experience, the jerkiness does not stop. I could say that it does get better(slightly) after the "break-in" period but I still feel it to this day when I slow down without pressing the...
  19. Model Year 2018 and Newer Issues/Symptoms with my '18

    Engine and Drivetrain
    I agree with you. I owned it for 2 months and have 5500miles on it. It does get a little better but it seems like those problems never completely go away. This is my first CVT as well and I really had to change the way I drive to make the situation "better".
