    90K Subaru XV

    Well, I passed the 90k mark this week and thought I’d share my experiences over the last 45K since Feb 2016. It started a bit rough with a burned out clutch, luckily replaced under warranty (around 49K). As it’s a manual, i started driving more clutch-wary, putting it in manual during stops etc. So far no problems. Other than the clutch, both brakes have been replaced (front around 60k, rear around 80k) and new tyres fitted (at 52k) and serviced at the dealer a bit ahead of the schedule. I am extremely pleased with this now nearly 6 year old car, both on the road and occasional off road. I drove a CRV the other day and, albeit newer and fancier, it just didn’t feel as planted as the XV. Mileage remains at 54 on highway, lower 40 on B roads. I usually drive my cars until up to high mileage (last car did 300K km), so let’s see how far the scoobie will go! Wishing all fellow XV’ers many happy miles!

    Forester steering issue

    Sorry for the delayed response. All have been inspected and all are in good condition. One possibility has been mentioned. A friend had a similar problem with a Kia Sorento fitted with Michelin tyres. Never occurred to me it could be my tyres, she had Vredestein fitted before the Michelins that I put on about a year ago. Could this be a possibility?

    Hi everyone

    Thanks for the info. Good shout for the oil, filter and plugs change before the remap. Do you know whats the best option for these items for the 2001 bugeye?

    Making a better sound.

    Tried the link again this morning and by copy and paste into Google and it worked. Very strange? I don't have much of a frame of reference with the diesel engined XV to be honest but from the video clip I'd say the no back box has a deeper, broader sound. It might sound very different with the car under load?

  13. Hi. I have recently bought a 2004 3L outback. and so far really like the car. But it has started getting a SS or 55 error code with the traction abs lights coming on. It used to happen after driving for about an hour. then was coming on earlier. Now its as soon as I start the car before even driving. I have read that its most likely a abs sensor fault. I have measured the resistance for the front sensors and they both read 29.26M ohms and 29.50M ohms. A friend of mine also has the same car so we measured his sensors and they were 22.6M ohms on both front sides. could someone tell me what sort of reading I should be getting and if the reading I have are within tolerance. I will also test the rear sensors when I find the connectors. But have not been able to locate them yet. Thanks

    HI Newbie here

    Wotcha and welcome Steve - that is a very desirable motor, wouldn't mind one myself and dont worry about the Evo - When I found Mitsubishi manufactured switches in my scoob I realised they were both very closely related I haven't seen a Mica blue Type R for some time, 18 months I think, been keeping an eye out and even then I did not know if it was original or had been resprayed. So IMO will be a case of keeping an eye out - and now you have flagged it on the forum that may help as well

    Looking to buy first Suburu

    Wotcha and welcome. Here is a thread with a load of good advice in general With the 08 onwards ones check for rear arch rust - it collects there as well, panels are thin so look along the car on the roof line, the upper rear qtr panel can sometimes be pushed in. You can get clunks from the front top mounts and suspensions struts, slow rolling forwards and backwards then braking will throw these out. Usual stuff around full service. Interior trim paint is really thin check the door card handle grips and console trays where keys will have been placed for damage - small negotiating point get a proper 4 wheel alignment done and consider a remap for optimum fuelling through the range and ringland failure protection (not necessarily power) Keep us posted as to your progress

    Where is P555WRC

    Hi guys, would any one have contact details and the location of P555WRC? I’m sure it’s been asked a million times before... I looks like it’s been off the road a few years now.
