2012 Subaru Impreza: All's Well That Ends Well

December 28, 2012

2012 Subaru Impreza

The holiday season can be a stressful time, and our 2012 Subaru Impreza was certainly feeling the pain. You'll recall that our little Subie limped into yuletide with some CVT issues that required a trip to the dealer.

The car was returned to us after a couple of days and we're happy to report that all injuries seem to have been healed. All it took was a new pressure switch, and not an entirely new transmission, as was initially feared.

So the Impreza is back to its old self, which is a good thing. The car was a dutiful and reliable ferry over the holiday weekend, handling assorted visits to various friends and acquaintances — along with a trip to the Hollywood Arclight for a weekend showing of "The Impossible" — without problem or complaint.
