My new 2013 3.6, Some... Issues?
Ok, Just bought a 2013 3.6R limited with many options directly from the local subaru dealership a week ago. 47k, not CPO, but I got a 4 year 40k extended B2B warranty for cheap, $100 deposit for anything. Of course it still has the 6 year 60k drive train warranty(yay).
I'm coming from a 2000 Impreza 2.2 and holy **** I'm super super happy. But.....
After driving it a bit more than test driving, I found a few things?
When going 15-35 and I press on my brakes I can feel a slight.. Feedback in the rotational feel on the drivers side through the pedal, and if I touch the frame near the pedal, it's not smooth. more like thud thud thud 1-2 times per rotation of the wheel. Not exactly audible(but can be.. slightly), but it seems to be worse at times more than others, or not be happening at all.
Also, I found when I'm going.. oh, 35+ and go over a pothole or bump (On the passenger side is all I've noticed so far). I get a fishtail in the rear jetting the cars rear end slightly to the right.
So, I called the sales rep and asked about both.
He said... the brake problem should be looked at and he didn't know.
The second problem, he said that he experienced it in his 2007 Baja, and said that it was the traction control and it was normal. I'm at work and haven't had time to turn off the TC and test it out. But I was just wondering what you all thought. I couldn't find anything on here about it besides it was either over-inflation, toe-out in the differential, or bad struts.
I'm concerned with this as I've only known the fishtailing in any other car to be an issue. But I've never had traction control, or symmetrical AWD.
Other than that, I'm stoked on the car, it's beautiful, it basically looks brand-new, smells brand-new, drives like a dream... cept these issues.. or are they?
Any and all help is appreciated.
