  1. Impreza MY17 - worse cr I have ever bought. Just been informed that the infotainment system has a fault that Subaru will not take responsibility for as the 3rd party supply has halted export of the part until the fault can be rectified, mean while your infotainment, navigation and magic eye system is not working correctly if at all at times. Subaru know about this but still sell the cars, be warned. They will not take responsibility for the part fault in their car as its 3rd party supply. Had the car 8 months and that’s been too long. Subaru aftersales service worthless
