    Here we ago again. We literally just had a certified Subaru mechanic replace my daughter’s 2013 Outback engine (yep, it was one of the models included in the glass action lawsuit). Her car had 104,000 and because it was over the 100k extended warranty, SoA offered her $1000 credit for a $9000...

    Waiting to see if my classes are canceled so I can drive up to NC for the long weekend. Have an old sailboat which I intend to turn into a bar. Got it strapped on-top of the Crosstrek and it was super sketchy for a little. Strapped the front down to the front bumper and the back to the trailer...
  5. Engine and Drivetrain
    I was out in Denver from Ohio. On a 102 degree afternoon, I got AT overheat light. I pulled over and to make a short story long, got my 2017 Crosstrek towed to the Golden Subaru dealer. Three days later, I got the car back - apparently, the Control Valve Body went bad. They replaced it, some...

    This summer I was out of town without my car for an extended period of time. Around 6 weeks I left my Crosstrek back in Florida and it sat in the summer heat and sun. When I get back the passenger door wouldn’t lock. It appears something had melted in the door mechanism. Luckily it’s under...

    Subaru Canada has posted the specs on the 2023 Crosstrek. It appears that the 2023 has no changes from the 2022 model. Here’s the link:

    2 weeks ago we purchased a 2018 cross trek from a used lot in Reno Nevada. During covid-19 it went through 3 dealerships 2-3 auctions, was located on the east coast in Conneticut, and was never officially sold to anyone for an entire 1 year and a half until we bought it on the West Coast in...
  11. Wheels and Tires
    These supposedly don’t work (per the manufacturer) for the Subaru Crosstrek 2021. So I am wondering if anyone knows of any similar that might work.
  12. Engine and Drivetrain
    edit: Subaru confirmed it’s the centre diff viscous coupler My new to me 2015 Crosstrek started making this noise while turning. It's a 5 speed, 195,000kms, never had axles or fluids serviced. -Does the fact it makes the noise with the clutch pressed in rule out the centre diff/viscous...

    I have a 2019 crosstrek and I'm looking for crate for my dogs that will fit with or without the seats down. I've looked at gunners and ruffland and I'm leaning toward ruffland simply for the price but unfortunately they aren't crash tested. Has anyone with a crosstrek used a large sized ruffland...

  15. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    I have a 2013 Crosstrek with 97K miles on it. It burns through oil before the normal time for an oil change (3K-5K miles). I top it off to keep it going between changes. Someone at an auto store recommended I use a product for high milage cars to help extend the life of the oil in the engine...

    With the Forester's 2.5 engine dropped in to the Crosstrek (I know it's not that simple and not without changes) has anyone thought of checking fitment or modding the Forester OEM under guard onto the Crosstrek?
  17. Crosstreks Off Road
    So, I've had a 2016 Crosstrek. Don't love it due to lack of horsepower. But I live on Long island, and want to know if this thing is beach ready. It has the stock tires. Probably will get KO2s for it but not right away. Anyone have some insight into this? Have taken it (2016 Crosstrek) off-road...

    Had two pre 2012 foresters. Head gaskets didn’t keep me away, so I’m back with my 2021 Trek Sport. I love the cool grey khaki color 😍 it’s at the dealer while we try to identify some problems I’m experiencing, but going back for it tomorrow and I can’t wait.
