2008 Imp 2.5i Wagon
I have a 2008 Impreza 2.5i 5 door, automatic, 61500 miles.
I took it in to a tranny shop last week to have the fluid changed. When
they took the car out for a drive, they heard a sound that they
identified as being the pinion bearing in the front differential going
bad. They suggested that I take the car to the dealer to see if Subaru
would cover this, even though I am slightly past the warranty in miles.
I took it to the dealer today and after two hours they said that
something is definitely going on in that area, and they would call
Subaru to see what they would do.
What Iím wondering is if this is a common problem for this model, and if
there are any related service bulletins? This is my sixth Subaru and I
have never had any transmission or differential problems on any of them.
Thanks for your help.
