Question about 2003 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Feels like flat tire

Hi, My 2003 Subaru legacy wagon feels like it has a flat tire. This only happens once in a while at high speeds. tires have been checked, brakes, allignment, wheel balanced. I am at a loss and the dealer wants to keep driving it on the highway to see if it will happen again. it feels like it is on the front passanger side. costing me big bucks and no answer yet.

What is the problem with the wheels if it's already balanced and the car still shacking?


One of the tires has probably gone bad.. The inner cords of the tire are separating.. You can sometimes feel the bulge in the tire by rubbing your hand across the tire.

i want you to feel all 4 tires, feel for lots of flat spots. feel all the way around them. they might have flat spots on them. this will cause this noise. you neer to rotate your tires at 3,000 miles front to back. this will stop them from cupping out. thats what the tire store calls it. have your tires checked for balance when you rotate them. your tire with flat spots will make a good spare tire. switch the bad one to your spare to see if the noise gets changes

Thumping noise from front-end


The one on the side you hear the noise from is most likely bad.
Also check the tires you may have a bad spot on one.

I had similar problem with my '99 outback. Replaced the front half shafts and seemed much better. A few months later seemed to be comming back so replaced the driver side shaft again and the problem disappeared. I had put in rebuilt shafts and the driver side shaft was not rebuilt correctly.
