2005 Subaru Outback / Faulty wheel bearing

1 United States Review updated:

Complained of a wheel bearing failure on my 2005 Subaru Outback. My service ad adviser was named "Mike". I was charged $98.95 for the diagnosis and told that "all 4 tires cupped". No other service performed. The noise continue after the tires were replaced.

Located a recall notice on a website, contacted Subaru of McKinney and was advised to bring the car in.

Delivered the Subaru to Subaru of McKinney where the right rear wheel bearing was replaced under warranty.

    I had the same issue with the rear wheel bearings failing. In addition, the front axle boots tore and I was told I need to replace them. I have had problems with my 05 Outback on a continuous basis for example, the interior light constantly burns out, I have had to replace the tires so many times I have lost track, today I just lost power steering (I am about to research it), the stereo display went out, I replace headlights at least once a year, the shocks need to be replaced and there are many other little issues with the car. I am thoroughly disappointed with Suburu and I will NEVER invest in any product from this company again. Oh, and my uncle owns a Forester and had to replace the head gasket within the first 2 years of its life.
