Summary:

My 2007 Subaru Impreza is a bad car

Faults:

2007 Subaru Impreza works with difficulty in cold weather. It takes a lot of effort to get the engine started. Dealer cannot find reasonable solutions. Installing a block heater is not an option for me.

During cold weather, I have to get up in the middle of the night and drive this car about 15 minutes so that I can easily start the engine next morning. If I do not do that, it takes a lot of time to start the engine. If I am not lucky, the spark plugs get wet and oily and I have to get them replaced.

This car drives me crazy very well.

General Comments:

This car is very nice and it is very safe if it runs.

When I first start the engine in the morning, the brakes are very weak. I have to push the brakes with all my power to stop the car if I want a quick stop in 10-20 feet.

When the engine is at 500rpm, the car shakes a little bit.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

"My 2007 Subaru Impreza is a bad car."

I see that you are in Turkey. That means that you have your choice of either the Black Sea or the Mediterranean Sea in which to drop that piece of junk.

That would make me very happy. However, the bank from which I borrowed money still owns this car. I was going to go to court but the weather is unusually warm in these days in Kars Turkey. (I have to prove at the court that it is not working in cold weather) 2007 Subaru Impreza causes problem in cold weather. Am I lucky or what?
