2016-2017 Subaru Crosstrek Engine Malfunctions

Engine defects are among the most concerning and unsafe issues that can arise in a motor vehicle. Those who own or lease a 2016 or 2017 Subaru Crosstrek should be aware of multiple reports of persistent and worrisome engine problems in these vehicles. Acceleration issues, batteries that drain too quickly, and engines that lose power for no apparent reason have all been reported by Subaru customers. Although the manufacturer has issued one official auto safety recall campaign impacting this make and model, it pertains to brake lights and does not mention engine issues.

One owner of a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek reported that they have had to replace the battery three times within a two-year period. Each trip to the dealership is unsuccessful in diagnosing any underlying issues, but the owner is concerned about this seemingly recurring problem. Another driver stated that their 2016 Subaru Crosstrek experienced a complete engine shut off while traveling at a highway speed of 70 miles per hour. Fortunately, the driver responded quickly and maneuvered the vehicle to the edge of the road and avoided a collision. The inspection yielded no information or diagnosis, leaving the owner hesitant to use their vehicle out of fear of the incident happening again. For now, many Subaru customers continue to wait for the manufacturer to acknowledge their concerns and provide them with a permanent solution.
