View Full Version : 2013 Crosstrek engine cranks, doesn't start - intermittently

I've had my Crosstrek about a month. At least once/week....this week twice....when I go to start the vehicle, the engine cranks but doesn't start. I let the vehicle sit for 30 seconds, try again, and it starts....but sputters for the first few seconds. What's very strange is that my 2012 Forester did this same thing, but not as often....maybe only 6 times the entire 14 months I had it. And, my son's 2003 Impreza WRX has done it maybe a handful of times in the 5 years that he's had it. Both my dealer and Subaru customer service state they haven't had any reports of this problem, which I find hard to believe. My family can't be the only ones having this problem! My salesman suggested it may be related to the gas, but both my son and I don't even get the same brand gas. My Crosstrek is going into the dealer tomorrow for them to investigate the problem. So, any other Crosstrek owners with this problem? Thanks!
