Default 2014 Impreza Limited threw code P000A

I literally bought this car brand new in February with 20 miles on it. When coming home last night.. My check engine light came on along with the traction control light and my cruise control was blinking.

Just went to Advanced Auto .. And P000A is the code it threw... Is this bad? Should I take it to the dealership?

I don't know if it's bad but absolutely you should take any issue like this in while you're under warranty. All makes of cars have issues. Give them a chance to look this one over and fix it.

It is could be a false reading like mine was.

Like the others said, take it to the dealership. Don't take it to autozone again. Hopefully they didn't reset it. If they did, the dealer can't do anything and will tell you that if it comes back to bring it in then.

Bought a new '14 Impreza Sport Limited last Wednesday with 1911 miles on it, drove 350 miles on it, and got a P000A error. Took it into the dealer last night, and they said they needed to swap the oil cam valves. I have no idea what that means, but I'm currently on a loaner. Did some research when I got home and a P000A error is for: camshaft slow response. Can someone explain what this means?

Much appreciated.

camshaft are the shafts on top of the head that controls the intake and exhaust valve open and close times

Slow response is a response that is slower than normal.


Your sensors on the camshaft are not responding like they should.

To add to this, it concerns variable valve timing. The computer can adjust the valve timing using hydraulics. The cam lobe is a fixed shape, (lift and duration). I'm not sure how sophisticated the whole thing is. ie: can it actually vary the duration by slowing the cam at the exact right moment, or simply when the valve opens and closes in relation to the position of the piston. Just a guess, but I would suspect the latter.

It uses oil control valves to adjust your variable valve timing (avcs) slow response most likely is you have a defective oil control valve or some debris is stopping it from working properly.
