Subaru Of America - Paint chips on 2018 Sunshine Orange Crosstrek
The paint integrity on the 2018 Sunshine orange Crosstrek is non existent. My car was purchased January 13, 2p18, just over 2 months ago. I even purchased a clear vinyl bra with the delivery of my new car but right above it would be at least 5 paint chips on the hood...

I am so angry!!! I just had to FIGHT to get my 2019 WHITE Crosstrek roof's repainted due to a paint issue.

Just picked it up and before leaving the lot we did a walk around with service and found ANOTHER area where the paint was cracking. I am back to square one and fighting to get it repainted on the doors now too. It is just a year old and less than 8k miles. I am so upset.

We NEVER use the auto wash we hand wash our cars and this is the first NEW NEW car we have ever had and it is fully paid off. It is making me SICK!!! I am so pissed off I want to trade it in and what I found out is that whis is happening to MANY crosstrek vehicles. I am thinking of asking to be placed into a different model because Subaru is painting and only authorizing one area a time and using the same damn defective paint that's on there now.

What happens when my lemon law warranty runs out and I cannot fight to get my monies back? I bought every damn warranty they had (or so I THOUGHT) but wasn't offered a paint one.

NOW My dealership says I can have some special protective wrap put on it for $1k. I thin Subaru should pay for it so I do not have to do this over and over again!!!!

I feel that the decision to replace the compressor was made without an inspection being done when I returned the car after it continued to blow in hot air. The first bill was for 130.00, then they took my car for about ten minutes and decided it was the compressor. Thank you for your help in advance

I have a 2012 Subaru outback with low mileage (~30K only). Lately, I had issue to fill gas into the tank. I called dealer on 7/6 and they couldn't check it till 7/31 due to over-booking. I therefore had it fixed by a local shop and they discovered that the inside layer of a rubber hose collapsed. The work was done on 7/15 and they charged me $308.76. I have purchased many cars including GM, Toyota and Honda with different models in the last 40 years. This is my first Subaru I never experienced this strange issue with other cars I have/had.

My son, his financee and her 18 month old were in her Suburu Forrester. A semi crossed center line hit car in front of my son then hit my son on the drivers side. The vehicle rolled 3 or 4 times. When we got to the accident scene I didn't think I would ever see them again. Both he and his fiancée airlifted to UNMC in Omaha. 18 month old had one scratch on his chin. My son has a fractured c2 vertebrae, broken left arm and 14 staples in his head. She has bumps and bruises but nothing broken. Both released from hospital next night. Nothing short of a miracle. This is dashcam footage of the crash. Thank you so much for my sons life!!!!

The Great Pumpkin wanted his skin back. I can't tell from the photos whether bare metal has been exposed or the primer coat ; that would likely determine the source of the problem.

Most of the online comments condemn the orange so it's probably the problem. But if that's bare metal exposed, the problem is either the surface prep, primer, or friction from a malfitting component.

2014 Outback 3.6 Limited. Earlier this week my wife went grocery shopping and was coming to a stop in a parking space in front of the store.

Her foot was on the brake- she was essentially parked- approximately 4’ from the sidewalk in front of the car- the car suddenly flew forward, engine revving as if the gas peddle was floored (it wasn’t!). The car hit the curb with enough force to blow to blow a tire and mounted the sidewalk between the parking space and grocery store. Despite the fact that her foot was on the brake and it was depressed, the brakes were having no effect in overriding the instantaneous surge of full power from the engine. She had to quickly take her foot off the brake and punch it with all her strength to stop the car just before it would have hit the building.

She immediately shut it off. Thank god no one was on the sidewalk in front of her- if someone had been they likely would have died. This was NOT a case of driver error and neither was the floor mat was jammed under the gas peddle. She was braking to a stop in a parking space barely moving as her foot was on the brake peddle.

She wears a size six shoe and her foot was not straddling the brake and gas peddle. We notified the manufacturer, the dealer and Transport Canada immediately. Transport Canada has launched an investigation and will be inspecting the car next week. Subaru has registered the complaint but we’ve had no follow up from them since my initial call.

The dealer’s service manager called back only after he was contacted by the Transport Canada investigator despite me having left 3 previous messages. The service manager seemed more concerned that Transport Canada was involved, stated that the complaint was above his pay grade and that he would refer the issue to the general manager- no contact from the dealer since then. I’ve come across numerous, identical complaints of sudden unexpected acceleration involving Subaru’s on other sites. This is an extremely dangerous and life threatening defect that must be take seriously and must be resolved.

All of the various manufacturers and most investigator’s routinely blame sudden unexpected acceleration on driver error (no doubt, the majority of these events are driver error. But not all.

My wife is now terrified to drive the Outback and refuses to drive it again- ever. And she absolutely loved that car until this happened.

Monday me and my sister has a bad wreck ending with us upside down. We walked away from the wreck without even a scratch on us. I’m sad to say the car was totaled but there’s no other brand I trust more and would buy than Subaru

I am very disappointed in the quality. There are splits in several areas of the seat. Gorilla tape is holding it together. My 21 year old Buick looks better than my cross trek.
