problem #2

Impreza Sport Outback Sport

  • Automatic transmission

I am not sure if it is the quality of the paint or the design of the vehicle, but it seems that everything flies off the road and hits my car. I even have nicks and chips above my windshield and on my roof. I have not bothered with having it fixed because it will only continue to happen. I have other vehicles and they get the occasional nick from a rock...but this is excessive. I am looking to trade it in on something else before it starts to rust and has no value. I only hope that someone will take it in trade.

If you are having similar problems...PLEASE say something so that maybe Subaru will be forced to fix the problem

I had the car about a month when I noticed all these paint chips on the hood and front of car, it look like the paint is really thin, now 8 month later its even worse, the paint on the car is really poor quality, all you have to do is touch the car and it scratches, went to the dealer to complain about the chips and they said it was normal., I've owned a number of new cars and never had this many chips and that was when I lived in PEI where we use sand and there are lots of dirt roads, Now I live in N.S and never leave the pavement when I'm driving, this problem is all over the web, there should be a recall for this problem and also the problem with the film on the windows, which is also all over the web!
