  1. Crosstrek / XV Recalls and TSB
    Hello, New owner of a 2021 almost new Limited. This is the first car I've ever owned that is still under warranty. I'm wondering whether I could/should/must ask my dealership to perform under-warranty services from TSBs in advance, i.e., before experiencing the issue mentioned in the TSB. Is...
  2. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Hey y'all, I've been stressed out lately about a car issue I'm having and I thought it might be worth getting your opinions on what to do. I have a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, which I bought brand new from the dealership. It currently has about 22,000 miles on it. A few months ago, I was rear-ended...

    I recently got a Crosstrek and have been shopping around for the Gold Plus warranty. Having a hard time getting details from finance managers. Does anyone have any contacts/references of dealerships where they got their warranty after purchase? Thanks
  4. Wheels and Tires
    I recently got a 2020 Limited and i was planning on switching them with the good ol' bread and butter 215 K02s, BUT I love the look of 235's on them and I know with the current height it will immensely rub. Is 1" enough for it to clear with minimal rub? I was thinking of switching out the...

    I have a 2014 Crosstrek limited with the factory extended warranty to 7 years 100k miles. The car has 95k miles on it and I am curious on what I should be looking at/ listening for before the warranty expires. I have recently had a bunch of warranty items replaced: -New Transmission (was told...
  6. Wheels and Tires
    Hey all, Im from South Australia and was looking at getting me some 16" aftermarket wheels (not methods or motegi's) and some a/t tires to go with them. Just wondering if there will be an issue with warranty or anything like that by going a smaller diameter wheel than the factory 18"? Has...
  7. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    I read somewhere in this forum that one should get an alignment after having new tires installed. I did just that within a day of purchasing 4 beautiful Michelin Premier A/S tires for my 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid Touring. My vehicle is still under warranty. Background: This vehicle has...
  8. Engine and Drivetrain
    Greetings. I'm new to this forum, and cannot find a word about the CVT problem, so I'm posting a new thread. Sorry. I Googled my 2014 Crosstrek XV before I bought it, and it got great reviews, but I JUST got the letter about the CVT problem. I'm 70 years old and I'm working 2 jobs to pay for...
  9. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    2016 Subaru Crosstrek with 35,000 miles experienced a CVT failure on the freeway. I heard a loud pop suddenly lost power. All of the cluster warning lights turned on. Tried turing off the car and turning it back on. It wouldn't go into gear. Smelled a burning smell and the only light on now was...

    I'm in the market for a manual Crosstrek Premium and I'm a little surprised by how expensive the used ones I've found are. Right now, among other options, I have a dealer that has a 2016 Black Crosstrek Premium with 2,000 miles. It has aero bars and side molding and is pretty much perfect...
  11. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Brand new Subaru Crosstrek owner here, just purchased yesterday! Purchased the extended warranty at the recommendation of our mechanic. I was honestly not expecting to do it, so did zero research on pricing, etc before signing at the dealership. After doing some searching of old threads on...

    Hi there, I have a 2015 Crosstrek premium with EyeSight. I've had my car a little over a year now and am almost out of the 3 year/36,000mi warranty. I commute close to 100 miles a day for work, and typically 100-300 miles on the weekends. I know Subaru's don't typically have problems, but since...

    Hi There, Recently I have been having problems with my 2014 5MT Crosstrek. A couple weeks ago the oil light came on and I found out it was almost a quart low. I have never had an issue with oil levels before. Emergency top off on the road followed by a full oil change and I hoped the problem...

    I am planning to buy a used 2013 XV Crosstrek tomorrow. A friend sent this to me today: Subaru Owners Win Compensation And Warranty Boost For Oil-Burning Cars I'm wondering if this is good news for me as I could have this repaired (if I experience the issue) for free and enjoy the extended...
  15. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Hello everyone! I have a couple questions regarding installing a custom aftermarket subwoofer setup: 1. Will having this done professionally (eg. by Best Buy or the like) void any sort of warranty on the car? And 2. If I was to do this myself (following all electrical codes of course), do any...
  16. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    I just purchased a 2013 Subaru Crosstrek. A day after having the car I noticed two arbitration forms in the glove compartment which led me to look online to see what some of the common issues with this car which may require someone to have to take it to arbitration (lemon law). Oil consumption...

The wheel was turned full lock to the right...

    Hey Guys, The only issues I've had with my MY13 XVi-S is that the head unit sometimes freezes for a few minutes with a blank screen and no sound, and sometimes completely shuts down and resets to factory default. I have had it looked at by Subaru Toowong, who did nothing more than a 'full...
