2009 Outback Constantly Rattles
By SB on
Vehicle2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI bought a 2009 Outback last year and was so happy to have another Subaru. Several months after purchase I noticed a loud rattle in the front, took it to the dealership who told me there were issues with the 2008/2009 Heat Shields - and they replaced mine. The rattle problem seemed to be resolved, however 2 months later - it is rattling again. This time the dealership showed me Memo's of consumer complaints of the rattle - and stated it would probably continue because these Heat Shields are just 'clipped' together instead of being 'bolted' together. AND - be prepared for it to be much worse in the winter time. I wish I knew this in advance - very disappointed! : (
Best FeaturesBody style, interior design, handling in inclement weather
Worst FeaturesFix the heat shield problem in 2009 outback so the rattle stops! I'd like to enjoy driving my car again.
