On several occassions,the car has been reluctant to start,inside the garage even. Even after cranking for long periods. Latest episode involved me calling subaru assistance who came after 1 hour and of course,the vehicle started second crank,advice from them was when garaging the car do not switch off the engine until it has run for a few minutes! (taken with a pinch of salt!)I see on the internet several owners with similar problem and the only mention of a solution was a dealership recall to up-date software,I cannot believe this is the cure?
