2020 Subaru Outback Limited XT Abyss Blue Pearl, Gray Leather Interior
Felt a growing front end vibration over the last few days, increasing with braking. Speed didn't matter, the vibrating was the same result. Took my Touring XT in to Subaru today. They say it's a first for Subaru for the 2020 Outback. The boot on the RF axle is leaking grease and it's getting slung into the wheel barrel and rotor. In the barrel, it collects debris, of course, and that gains weight which throws the balance off. That's the vibration. The axle problem is a manufacturing defect. They're going to replace it, but the parts system shows one axle in the country. They say it's safe to drive until the axle arrives. They have to do a Quality Maintenance Report, which is a compete break down of the axle and repair with pictures, a full day event, so they can send them to Subaru's engineers for evaluation. I'll update as this goes along. Oh, I have 18K miles on the car. Definitely not a situation you think would happen before 150K.
