  1. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I'm such an idiot! I accidentally poured about 1/2 pt of windshield fluid into the coolant reservoir before I realized my mistake. Question is: is this a problem? Should I change out the fluid ASAP or can I run it anyhow? Kick me in the butt if you wish. As I said, I'm an inattentive...

    I bought a used 2019 3.6R about 6 months ago. Recently, I was driving down the highway when there was a smell of burnt rubber coming in the car (no smoke though). I immediately stopped and when popped the hood, the smell was even stronger (still no smoke). I took it to a Subaru dealer who at...
