Keyless entry security when you turn it on the headlights doesn't blink. On the dashboard "security" word is flashing. It wasn't there before.

problem #1

Impreza 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 61,000 miles
Car check engine light comes on going downhill in 3rd gear, car then shuts down and I loses control of car. Occurred on numerous occasions over the last 10 months and 20,000 miles or so. Taken to 2 different dealers, for a total of 5 visits and problem has not been corrected. The manufacturer was notified by registered mail and has done nothing to correct the problem. I am getting the run around from the manufacturer and both dealers, they are ignoring a very dangerous situation.
