Loud Car
By Joe on
2008 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Car is very LOUD at first start-up (cold after sitting overnight). Called Subaru about this. Said this is normal for 2.5i PZEV vehicle? I mean LOUD. It does quiet down after it warms up. When I went for test drive the car had been warmed up by dealer. Same thing when I went to pick-up car from dealer after purchase. I think that they were trying to hide this from me. I was told that only 2 valves are working at a cold start in order to heat up the catalytic converter faster to achieve the partial zero emission vehicle claim? Sounds like a class action suit in the making for premature engine wear in about 2 or 3 years. I would not have bought this car had I known this.
Favorite Features
Style, car looks great. Car rides great. Gas mileage about 26 to 28 mpg.
Suggested Improvements
Quiet this car down at cold start. Sounds like a truck.
