#1

My Forester makes a tire slipping sound when turning. Sounds like a 4-wheel drive truck with the hubs engaged. No problems with the CV boots. Just changed the rear differential oil. Anyone with a similar problem?


#2

Manual or automatic transmission? How many miles on the vehicle?

Are all four tires the same brand, size, and amount of wear?


#3

The car is an automatic with only 32,000 miles. The tires are about a year old (all rotated every 5,000 miles) with about 15,00 miles on them and about .25 inch depth left (depth is similar on all tires). I measured the circumference of all four tires today. They were all similar. No noticeable play in the front end.


#4

I would visit your locale Subaru dealer. You are on the fringe of the 5yr/60k powertrain warranty. Have them assess. You likely will get goodwill on a car this young if just out of warranty. Sounds like you have done everything right.
