Looks good, unrelenting check engine problem
By notasubaruguy on


2007 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Purchased at 1 yr old, manufacturer's lease turn in. First electrical problem at 4 months, seemed repaired.
Then about a year later, seat heater controls went bad.
Several months later, check engine light came on again, just as at 4 months. Wanted to replace O2 sensor ($800) but relented when reminded they already did that less than a year ago.
"cleaned" sensor and that solved the problem for about 30 days.
Brought in again, this time recommended fuel injection cleaning. Worked for two weeks. Back in again with same problem, after six hours shop has no idea yet what is wrong.
Least reliable vehicle ever owned. DO NOT BUY. Back to Toyota or Honda.
