Engine Performance Issues
Easily the biggest challenge with the Subaru Legacy concerns the engine. Many owners have reported that the car can consume an inordinate amount of oil between changes, even though it is properly maintained. Even worse, many drivers tend to not be aware of these issues until they get informed by mechanics.
As you probably know, a car that loses a lot of oil runs the risk of getting its motor damaged. This would mean that you’d need to literally change the engine – and spend much more money to get it done. This is why it is important for you to get your car checked out by the experts at Fremont Foreign Auto as soon as you can.
The Subaru Legacy vehicle – especially models created between 2010 to 2015 – has also been beset with issues over the CVT transmissions.
In most cases, owners noticed that the vehicle would shudder and stall whenever they start or stop abruptly. After a closer look, many experts have come to find that the CVT could be the cause of this issue. And most times, it would need to be replaced.
Subaru has extended the warranty for the Subaru Legacy CVT, but this doesn’t mean that the car is clear of issues. So, you want to keep an eye out for that and inform us when you notice a defect.
Malfunctioning Oxygen Sensors
Oxygen sensors are an important part of any vehicle. They help maintain the engine’s functionality, and can go a long way in optimizing the vehicle’s life.
Without a proper oxygen sensor, the Subaru Legacy would suffer several defects – from fuel inefficiency and limited acceleration to possible engine misfires. However, these sensors could also malfunction due to different issues – electrical issues, poisoning in the internal combustion component, and even excessively high mileage.
While oxygen sensor repairs aren’t so expensive, you should know that this issue can happen to any vehicle. So, be sure to give us a call if you notice this issue and we’ll be able to help you clear it up.
Head Gasket Failures
Issues with the head gasket in a Subaru Legacy are primarily due to high pressure in the coolant. Over time, this causes the head gasket to pop entirely.
However, you should know that there are several other possible challenges. These include an overheating engine, pre-ignition, and even a mismatch between the gasket and the slot. If the head gasket wasn’t properly installed, you could also have this issue.
We recommend that you bring your car to us and let us inspect it for oil or coolant issues. If need be, we can replace the head gasket as well to avoid any complications in the future.
