The car is okay, zero warranty is the concern
Some of the instrumentation on dashboard has not worked since delivery; neither the dealer nor Subaru Aust. will respond to letters/calls to have the matter rectified.
GPS system is at least five years out of date; states 2011 on the copyright, but is older than this.
Fuel consumption per 100 kms is higher than with my 5 year old Holden Vectra, averaging more than 9.8 l/100 km; I have a fuel log over 8 years to support this.
The car was badly prepared pre delivery, with a body part missing.
For old persons like myself, the total lack of warranty or service backup is of major concern; the reason for buying a new car. I have written to the local dealer and Subaru Australia, and after six months of trying to communicate with them, have realised they are not going to reply. People depending on the warranty should investigate the likelihood of being denied warranty before purchase.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
