2006 Outback 3.0 VDC
I picked up my new (to me) 2006 3.0 VDC last week, and the vehicle is great, it just had one slight problem that was not detected till after I took delivery. When turning on the cruise control the light comes on, but it turns off by itself when I turn the steering wheel. After investigating the problem on this site, it appeared to be the clockspring. So I went back to where I purchased the car (a local Sube dealer). They diagnosed the problem as being the "steering rolling connection". I am curious if anyone knows if that is the same as the clockspring. I am in Quebec, and language is sometimes an issue. The bigger issue really is the price of the part, I saw on here someone mention a clockspring is approx. $50.00, and they are asking $300.00. Now it could be the person who mentioned $50.00, had a 2.5, but I can't imagine the price would be that much more for the VDC. The only reasonable explanation would be it's not the same part. Any comments would be appreciated!
