Post by Jim_H » Jun 23 2015 8:49 pm

My AZ vehicle registration is up in a few weeks, so I am making an attempt to sell my Subaru.

For Sale: 2013 Subaru Outback Green color, 31,750 miles, tires have about 20,000 miles, and the 30,000 mile work was recently performed. It is a 2.5i Premium trim line. Winterized package if you go to Flagstaff or the White Mountains.

Kelly Blue Book puts it's value at about $21,600.

I hope anybody interested doesnt know how the HAZ search function works! :lol:

Also. Registration is prorated and refunded if you sell your vehicle so renewal shouldn't be a reason to sell.

The initial tires were a problem and have been replaced, HAZ search or not. That is why the tires have about 20,000 miles on them, they are newer.

How does the state know you sell or trade in a a vehicle to refund the money? Renewal isn't the reason, but it makes a nice time.

You tell them: "I just spent $500 on registration and don't own the car anymore. I want my money back!"

For more information, you might want to visit this ungooglable site that I happen to know about.

@joebartels I have an idea to raise money for the site. A chumley vs. Jim_H MMA brawl? Anyone in on the PPV?

I actually kind of hope that you two are secretly buddies and this is all good-natured ribbing. If not, you two are too old to be bickering.

LOL.

How about a demo derby, each with their own vehicle... hold it out in the middle of nowhere and Jim can lose on purpose then turn it in to his insurance as a stolen & trashed vehicle.

Snarcasm is a healthy interweb outlet. It also saves you money because it helps release pent up frustration that can result in a fist coming down on one's keyboard. So I've heard.

The seller posted additional information on this vehicle that is worth sharing for anyone interested in buying this vehicle. Please pay specific attention to where he calls this car a Lemon.

viewtopic.php?p=110841#p110841
So, I get to take my Subaru back to a dealer to have yet another problem taken care of, maybe. The persistent rattling noise that comes from underneath of the car when the engine idles or I move at slower speeds. Usually when the engine is cool.

Tucson Subaru lied to me when they told me my rattling noise was a common issue that was originating in the spark plugs and the engineers were working on it. Corporate and Camelback Subaru denied any knowledge of such things. Why I was told this lie, with very specific details such as the spark plugs fire in such a way that they produce a rattling noise, is beyond me.

I still wish I never bought this Subaru Lemon, or any Subaru. Who would have thought my then 10 year old Honda with body damage and 175,000 miles would have been better than a new Outback. Obviously, I recommend ever buying a Subaru, but I know no one listens to such thing. In fact, most people seem to think their stupid Subaru is just great.

Yeah, Subaru makes crap. If you don't know that, you haven't been in one. Anyone stupid enough to buy one, should be fully aware of how worthless they are.

And yeah, obviously, for the number of times I have had to deal with the long list of issue this car has had or still has, but yet purchased brand new with 5 or 6 miles on the odometer, my Outback is clearly a lemon. I'm just trying to get the obvious things fix so I can trade it in. I feel bad for the dumb sucker who buys it from the dealer, but better someone else, than me.


viewtopic.php?f=26&t=8889#p109928
So, since you jumped on my post from the other thread so fast and cross posted it here, even though this thread was obviously dead and no one was ever going to seriously consider buying my car, are you Todd's proxy now?

I don't know much about cars buttttt. I had a Samurai that rattled about the same times your car does. it was the Catalytic Converter. Sometimes the heat shield can break a weld or in my case the honeycomb stuff in side gets brittle and breaks loose. Good luck with the car.

I tend to think that any internal combustion engine that has spark plugs that rattle is a *%&# piece of $#!|!

From what I have read online, Subarus have a long list of potential problem sources for rattles. It amazes me that people think these are high quality cars. They are not. No car I have ever had, has made as much noise as this one does, and has since before 7,500 miles and the first oil change. Maybe it is a loose heat shield, maybe not. Could be other things, too. It always gets my goat, that I traded a free car with fewer problems than this car, for this car, and now I pay for it, yet hardly ever use the supposed off road capabilities. It's a glorified station wagon that handles poorly and is anything but fun to drive; cumbersome, slow, jerky and on and on. I never should have bought it, and I haven't been happy or satisfied with the piece of junk 2013 Subaru Outback since I got it up to 70 MPH on I-25 that first night while leaving Albuquerque.

My previous car, the 2003 Honda Civic, required nothing but gas, 2 oil changes, and tire rotations by this point in the game. I never had any rattles, it ran smooth, it didn't shake, vibrate, or anything. It ran, flawlessly and handled pretty good. It really disgusts me that I went for a Subaru. I have nothing but negative descriptors for them and their crappy cars and I find the positive feelings their irritating loyal followers have for them to be just short of a religious converts. The way some Subaru people talk about their cars and have sick loyalty about them reminds me of a cult, or people obsessed with Jesus.

So, Jim, stop being obsessed with how bad it is and trade it in! Sounds to me like a 10-year-old Honda Civic, which would cost practically nothing by comparison, would be better than this thing, and you'd have no car payment: http://phoenix.craigslist.org/search/ct ... onda+civic

It is almost not the money, and really the principle. However, you know I plan to trade this thing in. Plus, I really, really, really find the people who love Subaru to be very annoying. Angering, really. The stupid badges the company sells that people actually buy and put on their cars, the magazine with yoga articles, the clothing! Why do people buy this junk? It's a car! Those people are not drivers, they're cult members.

That has got to be the dumbest thing for a car I have seen.
