2007 Subaru Outback Owner Comments

problem #2

This is my second complaint to be filed. This has been an ongoing problem since 2013. My 2007 Subaru Outback loses vehicle power as the accelerator stops responding. The cruise control, traction, and check engine lights all become illuminated or flashing. This is especially common upon restarting the car after a short drive, coming to a stop, or after 5-10 minutes from a cold start. Restarting the vehicle until the vehicle will not restart and then restarting once more resets the issue for approximately 24 hours. Cleaning the connector plug to the accelerator temporarily resolves the issue anywhere form 6 months to one week. Subaru has been contacted and issued a generic response mostly dealing with air bag safety concerns. This is a very hazardous default in the vehicle which is being ignored.

When the outside temperature is below 32 degrees F, there is a strong odor of exhaust fumes or gas coming from the engine. When you turn the climate control to the cabin air recirculating position the smell decreases dramatically. This car must be driven with a window partially open for fresh air for safety. The odor is strong enough to cause nausea. There are numerous problems on the internet regarding this issue with Subaru. Subaru has never issued a recall to the best of by knowledge.
