I have a squeaking noise coming from under the hood.. I can only hear it at slow speeds, and it seems to only occur off throttle. The only "free" pieces that I have is the intake, and I already checked that. I'd take it to the dealer.. but it's such a pain in the ass. I don't get a rental without paying for it..
I've also had a different squeaking or rubbing noise only when I turn. For a while it was a rubbing noise only when I turned left.
I've had so many problems with this car.. I'm beginning to doubt subaru technology.
Well, after a while of neglection, this squeak started to turn in to an awful grinding noise. I also noticed that my rotors were scarred, BADLY! I took it in this morning only to have my rotors turned and brakes inspected. They finished, and as I began to drive off the lot, I hear the same damn noise! So I go back in and talk to the tech. He lifts it up, and I notice the wheel is rocking in a weird fashion. He grabbed the top and bottom of the wheel, and in moves back and forth like mad. BAD WHEEL BEARING! Until now, I have never heard any problems with the front bearings.. Oh well. I'll get my car back tomorrow.
