Ticking When Turning the Engine Off
By Dolly on
Vehicle
2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 I 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
I bought a 2008 used Subaru Legacy with 20,000 miles on it in March 2009. The only complaint I have is that after I drive it and then turn the engine off, it makes a ticking sound for approx 20 secs as though the engine is cooling down. I never heard this sound in other cars I've owned, so it's new to me. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if it's common. The dealer said it's the engine cooling, but I'm leery of it. The engine sounds more like a cheap car and is not as quiet when started or when driving. I've owned a Honda and Dodge, Intrepid and they seemed more sturdier than the Subaru Legacy.
Favorite Features
Interior, outside exterior.
Suggested Improvements
No red lights on inside dash. Looks cheap.
