Liberty

Hi My Subaru 2010 liberty exiga my11 odo 230K kms has recently had an issue as when I accelerate it, randomly feel jerky, slipped one or two beats then driving back to normal. Searching on Google NRMA shows me there are 9 reasons causing similar issue like that. So far i replaced 4x spark plugs but the issue unsorted. Please kindly advise me what to do next step. Many thanks. James

Hi @ gegee2301, The MY18 Liberty has the rear view reverse camera as standard on all model variants. Now, the camera does not have an audible alert, only visual. However, as an accessory there are front and reverse parking sensors that you can order through one of our parts and accessories retailers. The Subaru Team. http://bit.ly/2WZZ8yv

My 2016 liberty has just over 100,000 k’s. I’ve been told there could be issues coming if it is belt driven. How can I tell if my drive is a belt or chain?

I've a 2013 Liberty GT Prem Wagon. There is an issue whereby the gear selection at between 1200rpm and 1800rpm shudders. Is this related to the torque converter or a separate issue altogether.?

Hi @ Jos, There would be no mechanical differences in between those models except possibly gear ratios and the Outback may have high and low range. The Subaru Team.

Looking at buying a 2011 liberty for my son. I’m a bit worried about the torque and CVT issue, especially since we have just gotten rid of a dodgy VW Golf. Are there known issues with this model car and should we stay away?

Hi, Gen 5 2011 Liberty does have a cvt issue, the torque converter fails causing the car to stall when you come to a halt, like a manual when you stop without the clutch in. It is not something you can see coming, mine happened suddenly. I have just received the quote for $4550 to fix - I am 2nd owner of the car and every service has been by Subaru since new. I love Subies and mine is great to drive and otherwise excellent, but this repair bill is ridiculous. I used to laugh about VW reliability but now the joke is on me.

Hi Michael,
As I’m based in Victoria I haven’t had experience with Jupiter Motors, or this particular issue, but if the car is under warranty maybe you could try a different Subaru Dealer (second opinion). It may not help at all, but I recently got my 2018 Liberty serviced at Eastern Subaru where they did a software update on my head unit...maybe you could call Eastern (ask for service department) and ask them for some advice. I know they are in Vic, but they may be able to point you in the right direction. Or, just give another Dealer in your state a call-they might have some advice.

Hi
Got a Subaru liberty 2006 2.0R manual. Been having problem with the CEL on and blinking cruise control, scanned and the error codes mentioned about the air fuel ratio. Bought the oxygen sensor on ebay denso brand posted from US in July last year. But the problem persist to the point where the car cannot accellerate when throttled, it was just stuck in 20-40 speed. Changed the maf sensor and it got better, the throttle body was cleaned too. Despite the engine occasionally hesitated ,The CEL didnt turn on again just for two weeks. Any recommendations? This is getting frustrating.

The only thing I can think of is it might be that the air flow system might be clogged up so maybe changing the air filter right through to changing the air flow system & getting a tune on it might just fix the flow overall. I am quite a novice to this but from what I learnt when looking into getting an air pod filter for myself most of the people I spoke to said I would need a tune along with the upgrade. So maybe get your local mechanic to have a look at that otherwise a performance tuning specialist to check it out for you.
Hope this helps :)
