2006 Subaru Legacy Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 052008


  • 29,000 miles


I have an 06 Subaru Legacy GT.at my 30,000mile checkup the report states good except the rear brake pads & rotors which is rated; may require follow up attention.the rear rotors were machined. At 37,778 miles the radio was replaced due to it shorting out. At this mileage my coolant cap is no longer holding pressure & has to be replaced. At 44,542miles, the invoice says replace rear brakes as only the brake pads were replaced & the rear rotors were machined 6,000miles ago. At 47,560 miles fourth gear is grinding.the invoice states; found low/dirty manual transmission fluid.the transmission fluid was changed at 30,000miles & the fluid levels are to be checked at every visit which was last at 47,478 miles.transmission fluid was replaced.at 47,560 miles; found rear brake rotors warped excessively.this was not mentioned at 44,542miles when the rear brake pads were replaced. The rear brake rotors were resurfaced at this time again; as the front rotors were to thin & were replaced. From 3-5-08 when the last major inspection was done the front rotors were marked;may require follow up attention.on 4-17-08 the rotors are too thin and need to be replaced.at 50,129 miles the wheel bearings were replaced.the leaking inner axle seals was unnoticed by the technician until I mentioned it. The invoice states;the technician found the front inner axle seals leaking. Found knocking noise coming from both front axles caused by lack of grease due to leaking boots. The axle boots were replaced. At 53,455 miles found front rotors warped, resurfaced front rotors as they were just replaced at 47,560 miles. The clutch feels that it is not working properly, fourth gear is grinding again & is difficult to get into gear.when shifting at times, clutch will be completely disengaged and vehicle revs to 5000+rpms for no reason.I picked my vehicle up to take to my transmission specialist for a 2nd opinion; the hood wasn't closed, it was only latched.
