SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Feb 07, 2002.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK . this is the second time in 2 months that the brakes have failed while driving at low speed on a wet, but totally ice-free paved road. have taken car to be repaired at subaru dealer (2 different ones) but both times was stated hunter's invoice that they could not duplicate the customer's (me) concern, so no action was taken to fix the brakes. brakes definitely feel spongy when braking while driving forward, but brakes feel good and solid when going in reverse. last friday, i took my car to prestige, on feb 8th to address the second time the brakes have failed. service manager, dave lindsey said he couldn't duplicate the brakes failing again and so was not going to do anything to fix my brakes. i voiced my concerned that i was very afraid for my safety with these weird brakes and he emphatically told me he wouldn't fix the brakes until the brakes failed again!!! when i went into prestige's salesroom to get a 800 number to contact subaru to let them know my brakes had indeed failed again, dave lindsey marched into sales room of prestige subaru and demanded i leave the subaru prestige premises at once. he never even gave me the work order/invoice showing that he had even looked at my car for the failed brakes!!! i think that prestige subaru needs to be investigate. there is a very steep hill you have to go down in order to exit the prestige subaru premises and i was very concerned about traveling down it, after having no work done on my brakes following my brake failure on february 7th, 2002. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Subaru Outback 2002 problem was reported in EDNEYVILLE, NC.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Mar 23, 2003.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:MANUAL TRANSMISSION . i purchased a 2002 subaru outback from oldham's subaru of nicholasville, ky in feburary 2003. on sat. march 22, 2003, i noticed the car hesitating during initial acceleration after a stop and then with acceleration after shifting into second gear (manual transmission). on sun., march 23, 2003 the problem became much more severe. the car would lurch into intersections after a stop, and then hesitate. the car would not move at all, then would lurch out of the intersection. this nearly caused a very serious accident, and i had my 2 year old son in the car. i finally decided to pull to the side of the road and call roadside assistance. the car was towed to the dealership, who drove the car the next two days for 7 miles, then 6 miles, and said that they found no problems. i picked up the car and did not have the problem for a week, but i am now having the same hesitation problems with the car. it is clearly unsafe to drive, and i am afraid to drive it. my own investigation into the problem (web research) reveals that many other owners of subaru's made in the late 90's to the present have had similar problems, with no help from their local dealerships. i hope that this problem can be investigated and addressed before people are injured or killed. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Subaru Outback 2002 problem was reported in LEXINGTON, KY.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 31, 2002.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK:CONTROL UNIT/MODULE . my 2002 subaru outback sport (based on the imprezza) displays the same problem with the abs system being ineffective when braking over bumps as the 2002, 2003 wrxs currently being investigated by odi (pe03-029). this problem is not just limited to the wrx vehicle. the problem is clearly demonstrated under light to moderate braking effort, if the vehicle encounters a sharp bump (e.g. a raised pavement section at an expansion joint) while the brakes are applied. normal abs function would momentarily ease up the braking pressure on the front wheels as they become un-weighted on the back side of the bump, so that they do not lock-up. after the front wheels are fully weighted again the abs system would allow the previous braking effort to be re-established allowing the car to stop almost normally. thus the braking distance of the vehicle might be extended by the length of the bump (perhaps 6 inches). this correct behavior is exhibited by my 1994 probe gt. if i drive my subaru over the same road conditions, when the vehicle hits a sharp bump, the abs system start functioning and continues for a significant period of time, even after passing over the bump. this, in itself, should not be a problem, but during this time the braking efficiency is drastically reduced. this typically extends the stopping distance of the subaru by 10-30 feet (when stopping from 30mph) over what would have been achieved if the bump had not occurred. if i immediately release the brake peddle, and then fully apply the brakes the car does stop. so this problem is not associated with the tires ability to grip the road, or the brakes ability to stop the rotor/drum. i believe it to be a programming error in the ecu. this problem is repeatable and fully demonstrable. i would be happy to supply further details to help get this issue resolved. *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 10 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Sept 09, 2006.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:CLUTCH ASSEMBLY . after returning from a out of town trip, we got to our car and started to drive away and the engine revved up but did not proportionately increase in speed. after gaining some speed the symptoms disappeared. three days later after shifting from fifth gear to fourth gear while driving up a hill on i-70 the clutch completely slipped out. the car was un-drivable but we were in the left lane and there was no emergency pull off on that side so we had to make our way across three lanes of traffic to get to the right emergency lane. with no power we coasted through cars flying by honking at 65 mph. luckily we made it to the side of the road unharmed but quite a few close calls. we smelt the smell of a burnt clutch and could no longer engage the transmission or move the vehicle, it would only coast backwards. while we were lucky some other may not. subaru of america has refused to admit anything is wrong with the car other than a wearable item wearing out. this car has 77,200 miles on it and has had the clutch replaced once before at 34,500 miles under tsb 03-51-02r. we have owned five cars with manual transmissions all of which we drove for over 130,000 miles and not one has needed or had a clutch replaced. an employee at the dealership in the parts department stated to another employee while i was on the phone line that the "flywheel is making those go out so they will need to replace that too." *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 77202 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Nov 07, 2006.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . our 2002 subaru outback eddie bauer edition has experienced a consistent brake failure the first thing in the morning on days where the outside temperature is at or below 45 deg f. the failure is repeatable as follows: after starting the vehicle with foot on the brake, the car initially seems okay with normal brake pedal feel (soft but not stiff) - in about the time it takes to put the car into reverse the brake petal stops responding and becomes very stiff. also, brake assist disappears and it becomes very difficult (almost impossible) to stop the vehicle, even on the slight downgrade of our driveway. - under the force of gravity, it is possible for the car to drift backward into oncoming traffic, or anything else that happens to be located behind the car such as pedestrians and trashcans, for example. no accidents or near-misses have occurred as of the time of this writing, but this is not to say that they could not have occurred under normal vehicle use and traffic conditions in our area. the car usually comes to rest within 2 to 3 seconds after which the brakes seems to recover to normal function. - good functionality seems to continue as long as the car has not been sitting in the cold and/or as long as the engine compartment is warm. this problem has been brought up to two local subaru dealers who both indicated they have never see this problem before. also, one was able to replicate the problem. given their expert commentary and physical evidence it is suspected that the car's behavior might constitute an emerging safety flaw to the vehicle's braking system. system will be repaired by consumer. consumer has contacted subaru customer support regarding this matter. they indicated that this was not an officially known issue per the list of nhtsa recall actions; hence, they took no action to remedy/investigate the problem. see subaru case #: 936244 for details. see also nhtsb complaint #: 10106583. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 55000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Sept 01, 2007.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . in may of 2007, my 2002 subaru outback with 71,000 miles first began having overheating issues. i took it straight to a subaru dealer where they unplugged a radiator cap and added special coolant conditioner. 3 months later, the random overheating started again. i took the car back immediately to the dealer. the radiator cap was replaced, but this did not solve the overheating. they replaced the thermostat and this did not solve the problem. finally, they discovered it was head gasket failure with a warped head. the car was at the dealer for over a week for the head gasket repair. i contacted subaru of america who said head gasket failure was covered by an extended warranty for 98-2002 models, however, my 2002 model fell outside of the covered vin #s since it was manufactured after the problem was corrected (not all of the 2002 models were covered in the extended warranty). therefore, my head gasket repair was not covered by subaru's extended warranty for this frequent problem. i got my car back from the dealer and on the way home it overheated. i took it back immediately to the dealer where they reassembled it to make sure it was assembled properly and replaced the radiator as well just to be sure that wasn't the cause of the continued overheating issues. this seems to be a very common repair among subaru owners. subaru decided to grant us a "good will warranty" to cover the head gaskets with us paying a $300 deductible and they covered the rest of the head gasket repair (they did not cover the radiator, etc - we still payed around $1,000 out of pocket for the deductible, radiator, etc). i am happy they did this for us, but if our vin fell within the extended warranty, we would not have had to incur these out of pocket expenses. it is clear subaru has a defect in their head gaskets during certain years, but it seems they need to stand behind all the cars affected, not just some of them. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 76000 miles.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Jan 02, 2008.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:DELIVERY:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS . i own a 2002 subaru legacy outback wagon. last winter (2006-07) i started to detect an intense smell of gasoline in the cabin of the car when the temperature dropped below 30 degrees f. took it to my local repair shop (not a dealer) but they could not find a problem. the same thing is happening this winter (2007-08). i scheduled to bring it in to a local subaru dealer but then the temp rose above 30 degrees, so there was no point in bringing it in since they would not experience the problem. i am now waiting for the weather to get cold again so i can bring it in for them to check. in the meantime, i got online and found a number of other subaru owners who are complaining about the same problem. some of them have had the problem corrected, and it appears to be a fuel line leakage (o rings or clamps or something). they seem to have determined that gas is leaking into the area under the hood. one owner described seeing sparks. i am concerned about the safety of driving the vehicle and wondering 1) under what circumstances a recall is issued, and 2) under what circumstances subaru would be held accountable for covering the cost for repairs. also wondering what i should do about transportation until the problem is corrected, as i use the car to transport my children as well as myself and don't want to put us at risk of injury. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):4S3BH675227.

SUBARU OUTBACK 2002 car safety problem was reported on Dec 06, 2013.SUBARU OUTBACK 2002, manufactured by Subaru of America, Inc. had a problem with FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM . my wife drove her car, a 2002 subaru outback, about 5 miles home from work, and told me in the evening her car reeked of gasoline when she arrived at home. when i checked her car the gas odor had dissipated, but when i started it and backed it out of the garage the gas odor was very strong. i moved it back into the garage and shut it off. i discovered online that the odor was likely due to a fuel hose leak associated with a cold weather start. the temperatures here are cold for missouri, with highs in the low 20's. it still is cold, albeit as a minnesota boy it still seems like spring. at any rate, i found a website with useful diagrams and i located the hose under a bracket (of course), and managed to uncover the hose and tighten the clamps, which were very loose. after re-assembly i drove the car to burn off the gas remaining on the engine and i tested the repair with another cold weather start later. i have ordered a replacement hose from the subaru dealership for 12 bucks. i understand that recalls and service advisories have occurred and are in place for other subaru models including the closely related 2001 legacy. i would like to add the 2002 outback and every other subaru that uses the hose part # 807707130. the discussions online about this issue reveal some people are driving with their windows open or with cabin air set to recirculate, or waiting until the engine warms up enough for thermal expansion to seal the leak. as an industry chemist i find this ignorance about the hazards of gasoline fires appalling. however i think subaru's piece-meal approach to addressing their defective engineering is frightening. don't they care about the safety of their customers? my wife teaches chemistry, a typical customer, according to subaru ads. she loves her subaru. subaru does not love her. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Subaru Outback 2002 problem was reported in WEBSTER GROVES, MO.
