2016 Subaru Forester XT Auto CVT
Currently my FXT is at the stealership, with them attempting to fix it. It was in the shop last week for 3 days and they diagnosed it as having a bad MAF sensor. They ordered a new one and replaced it. I picked it up on Friday and it seemed like they got it figured out, car was driving fine but I didn't put many miles on it that night. Stopped by the store and went home so maybe 5 miles total, but it seemed to be back to it's regular drivability. Not so come the next morning. I started it and it was really sputtering, plus hesitating when trying to accelerate. After about 10 minutes of driving, it thru the P0172 code again. Since it was on a Saturday I did call Subaru, but they didn't have a tech to check it out, so I agreed to bring it in on Monday. Monday came and I managed to limp it to the shop, and it's been there since. I am only writing this so that maybe, if and when it gets fixed, I want to relay to others what the exact cause was. It's under warranty so hopefully whatever it is will be covered. I have scoured the internet on this issue but came up with nothing. There was a similar post on this forum but it was a dead thread, so knowing a little about cars I thought I would share and maybe bring things to light for someone else possibly. Meantime I am driving a 2019 Outback limited on the stealerships dime, so I am not down and out.
