how to write a review
Have a subaru outback without any problems for 2.5 years now with in the
past 2 weeks have had to have it "jumped off" 3 times. Took it to the
dealer july 1 was told everything checked out fine. Have replaced a new
battery twice and once again july 5 wouldn't start again. Told Randy
Marion Dealership about complaints and called Subaru America. What to
do now? Don't want to get stuck somewhere?
If it is a higher mileage car the brushes in the starter are worn out. The starter tests fine at the dealership because they didn't test it properly - they would much rather keep selling you expensive parts then fix the problem.. When the engine warms up the starter brush springs lose tension - the worn brushes won't conduct the power to the motor properly and the car won't start. Replace or rebuild the starter and you will be fine.
Replace or rebuild the starter and you will be on the road again in no time.
Buy a good battery instead of the crap Subaru installs. Interstate or Optima.
