Subaru is a Total Disappointment

2004 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Although I love this car, the biggest problem has been with the dealer and Subaru. I had a synchronizer problem develop, and took it in for repair. I was told that the transmission needed to be rebuilt due to "driver abuse", and that it would cost $2,900. After going back & forth, including talk of legal action, Subaru repaired the transmission free of charge, but said it was only a "gesture of good will", and not a warranty repair. Now, after only 25,000 miles, the clutch is slipping. I am not an abusive driver, I have never raced the car. I am 60 years old, and I have never had a problem with any manufacturer until Subaru.

Favorite Features

Performance, braking and handling. Very easy car to drive. Very safe due to the performance characteristics.

Suggested Improvements

Strengthen the gearbox, and put in a stronger clutch. Subaru and its dealers, need to either honor its warranty, or sell the car without one. Their treatment of me, and others, is reprehensible!
