2013 Subaru Impreza Hatchback 2.0i PZEV 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Review

My CVT failed at 147K miles only 5 years old. I've owned Subaru's for the past 20 years or so. They usually need the head gasket replaced at ~100K miles for a cost of ~$1500 now Subaru's need a transmission replacement before end of life at a cost of ~$1800 for a used to 8K for a new transmission. Im done with subaru's for now.

2013 Subaru Impreza Hatchback 2.0i Sport Premium PZEV 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Outstanding car with great all-weather capability. Engine is a little weak at 150hp, especially with the AC running. Extremely reliable transportation with excellent safety features.

2013 Subaru Impreza Hatchback 2.0i Sport Limited PZEV 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I purchased this car brand new....Drive about 20k a year. Mostly to work (90%) flat boring 65mph commute.. The BAD...The bluetooth is terrible sounds like you're in a wind tunnel always.. The car eats about a quart of oil every 5K. Subaru says thats normal. PZEV? The wheel bearing needs replacement already. The biggest problem is the terrible CVT.....Its heading to the dealership Monday. Even when the transmission is good its still a terrible item. Subaru had extended the warranty to 100k or 10 years...thank you Subaru:) Maybe to avoid a class action lawsuit perhaps? These transmissions tend to fail a lot! THE GOOD - Great on gas, especially on the highway. 35mpg at 65mph..... The AWD is AMAZING in snow. Hands down the safest car in snow by a mile. Leather interior is nice, visibility, controls are all great..you can pack a ton inside the hatchback at least. DO NOT GET THE CVT......

Review

My 2013 Impreza is on it's third engine. Two engines were replaced for oil consumption issues after numerous repairs. The car was constantly in the shop for 3 years. I trusted that the third engine would be good. Not so. After 24,000 on the third engine, the cam carriers had to be resealed, and I also had to replace struts at only 50,000 miles. Now at 56,000 miles the driver's seat is literally splitting because the material is so cheap. It also gets less than 20 mpg in the city, not anywhere close to what Subaru claims. I wish I had done a lemon law case. The only thing I got from Subaru was an extended warranty and I can not extend that to a dealership. I asked Subaru if they would buy back the car at Kelly Blue Book excellent condition, and no, they will extend no "goodwill". I will not purchase another Subaru.

Review

i have 5m, florida. clucth failure, transmission failure (needs replace). Shock absorbers, rear bearings replace. Burns oil, need a bottle between regular changes. service is hard to find and to schedule. Bluetooth is awful. Steel out body is thin and easily dent. Engine lacks power and combination with trany lacks torque. road noise. Who was a moron who invented locking doors protocol for scenario when you have to disengage alarm? What was good? probably just handling, stability and grip of 4wd on slippery road. Also hatchback with split rear bench was useful. Overall - it is the last Subaru i have and i had a few before. Took loaners while fixing it and 2017 is actually worse...
