I just bought a 1995 Liberty wagon AWD. It has a secondary lever near the gear select. Is this a high low range selector, or is it a locking lever between AWD and FWD. All help is good. Thanks

Can an engine (EJ2.5) from a 1999 Outback with manual transmission be fitted to a 1999 RX Liberty with auto trans? Will computer and all electrics and everything else go correctly together?

I have emailed and spoken to a representative of the Subaru Team, all I wanted was an honest answer to my question " how successful is a hard reboot" but I didn't get one.
I finally got the answer from my local dealer which was the hard reboot is hit and miss. My experience was a miss.

Following the installation of a new mother board by a third party I found that I did not have the guide lines when using the reversing camera, I spoke to my local dealer and was told it was a setting that they could do when the car was serviced.
After the service I was told that it could not be fixed as "checked all settings and nothing related to vehicle having this feature"
After discussion with third party who installed the mother board I was guided to the settings menu and fixed the problem in 30 seconds.
I am now wondering if the service people actually new how to do the hard boot as they obviously didn't know where to find the settings for the camera.
My confidence in Subaru is waning.

I have a Subaru Liberty Heritage 2001. Can someone tell me what the 'Heritage' means? Is it more luxurious than a Liberty? I'm confused - clearly!

I have just had my Subaru recently serviced and my fuel economy has increased from 8.7ks av per 100kms tom 9.9 in 4 days and my deriving has not changed. i took it back to the service department and they said that it must be the way the mechanic drove the car on test drive which is complete bollocks . what could it be?

Tom

Reset your trip meter, drive normally and see if is still the same.
My fuel consumption is closer to 10 lts per 100km. But I drive with the si on full boost.

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. Looking to purchase a 2004 Subaru Liberty GT 4GEN Premium Pack. It has 150,000k on the clock, regularly serviced and appears well looked after. Any common issues with this model I should be wary of ? Thanks!

My one was the base model(4cyl). I didn’t face a single issue in last twelve years. Just normal wear and tear.

Great cars. Super reliable. I have purchased most of ours with over 150K on the clock with no issues. I feel that the 2.5l engines are better IMHO. Check the dash as most are starting to show signs of cracking. Small point in an otherwise fantastic car.
