    I have recently replaced a 4EAT transmission on 05’ FXT. it had a crack in diff housing and obviously leaked profusely.

    2021 Subaru Forester Sport This thing has had nothing but rattles and vibrations, some of which have been fixed.

  3. Brakes
    ‘16 Forester Prem 79k mi. Subaru says brakes are good. My brakes shudder/vibrate only when slowing from 60mph+ and I think only going downhill, vibration stops below about 40mph. Vibration is moderate, gets worse the harder I brake, and does appreciably extend stopping distance. I can slow from...

    I'm getting my old 2002 Forester S back on the road. I got 4 new Kumho Solus tires (balanced, of course). Yet, I still get some vibration above 50mph or so. If I take my hands off the wheel, there is some side to side shake, just like a tire out of balance. Now, I got these tires mounted and...

  6. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    For the past week now in my 04 XT, I've been experiencing some terrible vibrations when driving around 10,35, and 70mph. For the most part, the vibration will go away when I'm +/- 5 mph from these speeds. And I mostly started noticing after a snowstorm and washing the under-carriage. I've...
  7. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Posting this information as it took a couple of trips and a lot of time for the service center to figure it out. Was having a rattle / vibration/ noise coming from the rear passenger side while at speeds above 15 mph and on very so slightly uneven surfaces. It was driving me crazy. It was hard...
  8. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, first time posting in here. I have a rattle that occurs on the right side of the dash near where the windshield and dash meet, that happens after the engine has warmed up. Mainly it happens on rougher roads, but the bar for a "rough" road is pretty low for this to occur. I have removed...

    I have a 2016 forester. It "vibrates", not sure if that's the right word for it. But, it does so when making a left curve at highway speed. I wanted to see if there was anyone here from Memphis? Who could let me know a good place to take it. I don't trust the dealer mechanics anymore. After...

  12. HVAC - Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning
    Hi all, Started hearing a buzzing/vibrating noise right around the AC compressors connection to the accessory drive belt. There's also a noticeable "hiss" sound when you're inside the car and start the AC. I still get cold air, but am concerned about it - trying to run AC less, but it's 100...

    I have a 2009 Forester N/A that idles smooth, with the engine remaining quiet when increasing rpm while in park. When taking off driving, it keeps on running smooth, but as soon as I reach 15+mph a very noticeable vibration comes out right under the driver and passenger front foot area...
