Where Your Author Sells a Subaru During a Pandemic (Part I)

I last gave an update on the vehicles which occupy my drive back in February. At the time, the Volkswagen’s roof rattle issues had (finally) been corrected and I was all ready for a quick sale of my Subaru Outback.

Not You Too, Subaru!

Everyone’s doing it, and now it seems Subaru has joined the maddening crowd of sales reporting conformity. Not long ago, Subaru, like most every other automaker, reported its sales totals on a monthly basis. And why wouldn’t it? The previous decade saw the brand’s popularity expand massively in the U.S., with volume up not on […] The post Not You Too, Subaru! appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

QOTD: Time for a Trucklet From the Dog-approved Brand?

No, I won’t rest until Subaru returns with a true successor to the brash and youthful Brat. I’ve harped on this desire in the past when we asked what vehicle the well fleshed-out Subaru lineup lacked, and I’ll do so again today.

2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Have Engines, Will Sell?

As we reported some months ago, the 2021 Subaru Crosstrek corrects a flaw that’s hitched a ride with the otherwise useful and appealing little vehicle since its inception: a lack of power. Even with a very mild power bump for 2018, the lifted-and-cladded Impreza five-door’s 2.0-liter Boxer four-cylinder still struggled under the burden of heavy […] The post 2021 Subaru Crosstrek: Have Engines, Will Sell? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Learning the Hard Way that Fiona's BMW engine came from a California Motorcycle

Yep, another lesson learned the hard way, the Chang way.Monday, Memorial Day, I took Fiona out for a test drive to evaluate how the recently refurbished shock absorbers affected the ride.  In regards to this, she felt fine.However, perhaps 3 miles into the test ride, Fiona suddenly started making a sharp snapping/tapping noise that followed the RPMs.  Dammit.I stopped, put her in Neutral gear to evaluate while leaving the engine running.  It sounded very much like a backfire or exhaust leak.  I ...

2019 Subaru Forester Touring Review – Slow, Safe, and Steady

Subaru has a dual reputation. Car people know it as the company that gives us WRX and STi (and a good chunk of the BRZ/Toyota FT 86 partnership), while the rest of the world thinks of the brand as one that puts out a lot of wagon-esque crossovers that appeal to granola types, academics, and […] The post 2019 Subaru Forester Touring Review – Slow, Safe, and Steady appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
