Hey man, I'm just relaying what I was told by the service team I worked with for my specific case. I had severe tire skipping and vibration up through the steering wheel at low speed turns and it sounded similar to what many were/are experiencing. I was one of the day one guys following your updates since that sht was bad.

This problem started at 7k miles for me, finally got a fix at 49K miles. I checked engine mounts, bushings, every nut and bolt I could... I never brought it to the dealers attention, they caught it when doing an alignment that the bolts were ceased (common and documented according to Maita Subaru) allowing the tie rod to spin freely.

Just because it was the fix for me, it might not be for you, but something that should be brought to attention on this thread.

it seems like an obvious fix just by getting under your car? You didn't see that?

I'm decent with a wrench, but I'm not a true mechanic, nobody is perfect and going to catch everything.

Hope the recent findings and resolve of my issue help others on this thread. I spent hours of research and checking things like the top hats, wheel studs for stripping, sway bars, bushings, motor mounts, my drive shaft I installed, the steering wheel I installed, my 2 piece rotors, calipers, a lot of stuff...

ya, thanks for the post--I hope this helps other people. I think it's a simple test one can get while the car is up in the air such as getting oil change.


I wish it were that simple on mine...
