Why won't the car start?

Asked by Nov 12, 2013 at 04:48 PM about the 2011 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Purchased a pre-own one about 5 months ago and haven't had any issues with it until the other day. I had driven the car in the morning, and it was fine. In the evening, I went to start it and it won't turn over. AAA came and jump-started it, but the guy told me that the battery is fine. It has been fine since. What do you think is the problem? Has anyone else encountered the same issue?

Why did he jump it if the battery was fine? Sounds like you may have a weak battery, I would take the car to Autozone or some Parts store and ask them to check the battery. This time of year is battery season, when the temperatures change it is hard on the batteries. If the battery is fine then it may be the starter going out or about 20 other possibilities. You may need to just take it to a mechanic for a diagnosis.
