'18 and '19 Crosstrek Limiteds
I've owned 2 of the 2014 limited Crosstreks but I've never driven a new Crosstrek of this series, so I had no point of reference. I just knew that it sucked pretty badly before I replaced these shocks. It now feels a lot more like my wife's 2018.Actually the oe shock ride is excellent, it is just the durability is a problem, but it is not expected with the price point they sell. I dont mind 20% more for the price, aslong as 1.5-2 times more durable.
Well, I figured that this was going to be a big project and it has been. It's kinda of like a renovation on a house, you take it one problem at a time.Geez, I'll sure give you credit for persistence. I would have given up a long time ago. And I am pretty good at fixing up stuff that should be thrown out.
Our nearly 20yo Honda has developed a leak when it rains. The driver's (RH) side floor gets soaked. Judging by following the stains, the water appears to travel down the steering column to the carpet. Honda is too old to be affected by the Takata air bag recall but after really heavy rain the Airbag light is now permanently illuminated on the dash so I guess water got into the Honda's sensor/system after really recent heavy rain. It makes me wonder and is also probably a stupid question given how much work you've done on Submaru but have you checked the VIN to see if it was recalled for the Takata airbag issue?First oil change completed at 80K! Now to load the miles on this car and get it to repay me for years of frustration.
Time to refresh remaining issues;
1) airbags inoperable. Not really manifesting itself in anything other than dash lights currently, but would hate to need them!
2) cruise inoperable due to problem#1.
I believe that's it.
