  1. ('14-'18) 2018 - 6MT/engine issues? - Updated!

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Change PVCs till your fingers fall off, it's not going to help. Subaru is sweeping it under the rug, but it's the design. The technician when I took my car to the dealership asked if I could RETURN IT. They already know what is up.
  2. ('14-'18) 2018 - 6MT/engine issues? - Updated!

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Dump that sh** like a hot potato. I had no idea (after doing days of research) that the 6mt still has the oil consumption problem. I don't believe it will be fixed either due to the fact that it needs higher tension piston rings to deal with the higher RPMs of a manual transmission. I hated...

    I had this used rear bar on for three weeks before trading in my 17 forester. Bushings are basically new (only being used 3 weeks). It really did make a difference. $75 plus actual shipping or local pickup Austin TX. Photo is of actual bar.

  5. ('14-'18) 2017 - Rattle at 3000 rpm - How noisy is new engine? (merged thread) - Updated!

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Update. Failed the oil consumption test at 15,000. New short block coming.
  6. ('06-'08) 2008 - Symptoms of bad crank pulley?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    bump does anyone have any suggestions on what would cause the squeal only under acceleration (high rpm) only in gear? Is there anything in the 4eat that would make that kind of noise?

    EJ25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (1998-2010)
    My wagon squeals under hard acceration, but not in park. Does the harmonic balancer have rubber that will seperate or other ways it will go bad?
  8. Toroweap / Tuweep then Crested Butte last hurrah for the SG w/ 183,000 mi that never left us stranded

    Off-Road Gallery
    In very early June we took the sunshine route in and the mainstreet route out. Despite going early to mid week, the campground was mostly full! So much for the "most remote, you'll probably be the only ones there"... Our SG was raised about an inch and a half or so, but I think we could have...

    Just letting you know I've heard your noise and I have the EXACT same noise / issue. Working with a dealer right now.

    I'm watching this thread, because I have the same issue described, but between 2000-3000ish rpm.

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Well I actually just assumed it was some sort of resonance from a loose heat shield. It was the mechanic that said it sounded like piston slap. I haven't been able to find any threads specifically about my problem, not that what you say doesn't' exist. Even if the noise is not harmful, it's...
  12. ('14-'18) 1.5" without multi-link spacers

    Offroad Suspension
    Clearance, and a slightly higher view point. Why is it necessary to get larger tires for a piddley 1.5 inch? My sg made it to toroweep (toroweap?) just fine on stock size and 1.5 lift. Plus I want my spare in the boot.
  13. ('14-'18) 1.5" without multi-link spacers

    Offroad Suspension
    Yes I know, but I'm not going to have larger tires... I was just wondering how "off" it will look without the spacers.
  14. ('14-'18) 1.5" without multi-link spacers

    Offroad Suspension
    Just curious if anyone has done it or how it looks. I'm going to be running stock tires so that I can have a full sized spare in the trunk. Also, why are the spacers so danged expensive? Anyone DIY them?
  15. ('14-'18) Lift kit confusion 2" front 1.5" rear?

    Offroad Suspension
    I'm looking at some of the more affordable lift kit options for my 2017. I've ran across two steel ones that have a 2" front and 1.5" rear? Does this have something to do with the rear coilovers? How would 2" front and 1.5" rear not make it look wonky? In addition to that, the description...

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Now that I have spoken to SOA, things might be ok. The dealership is dodging the "that's normal" "nothing to worry about" & "can you return your car?" talk. Honestly, if the problem just would have been acknowledged and dealt with in the first place instead of giving me the BS lines, I would...

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Update not only was this car properly serviced, the oil changes were done between 3-4000mi. The one and only previous owner was and continues to be a... Subaru service advisor.

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Well... I've spoken to SOA. While the individual was very nice and polite, I was somewhat told that it's only the dealership's recommendation they go by but they will discuss it with them. So if the mechanic feels piston slap as early as 14,700 is fine then it is. If I get a warranty denial over...

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Another update. I just got the full service history from dealership of the previous owner. Not only were the oil changes on time, they were done by subaru every 4,000 miles.

    FB25 - 2.5L Non-Turbo (2011- 2018)
    Update they want to do an oil consumption test. The Subaru master tech said it was both "totally normal" and suggested "I return the car if I could". ***. They stated they would replace the block if need be yet we're concerned "it had been abused". It was serviced by a subaru dealer...
