Unable to get key out of ignition 2016 subaru outback


Asked by May 15, 2019 at 10:19 PM about the 2016 Subaru Outback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I talked to the subaru dealer
and since my 2016 is out of
warranty and there have been
several problems with this
car (scream) Subaru was
aware of the problem they
have received  aTSB
technical service
bulletin...directly about this
issue. But kept customers in
the  dark..highly unfair. NOW
there is no charge for this
repair even if your vehicle is
out of warranty because of
this TSB. They didn't tell
customers ..frankly it's all
about the money. Anyway i
go monday to get this fixed 1
1/2 hours hooray for me

Thanks!! Been having this problem for a couple of weeks now...will be nice to get it fixed without forking over a bunch of $.

Subaru dealer won't deal with it without charging $410...not loving my 3 year old subaru anymore..


Tried looking for the TSB — can anyone tell me the TSB # for this issue? Subaru dealer told me it would cost around $300 plus part and 4 hours to fix. Car only has 25,400 miles. NOT PLEASED!
