Impreza requires full throttle when coming out of a driveway and turning. It never does this at any other time. Dealer told me it was a problem caused by the CVT transmission? This can be really dangerous when trying to join other traffic. Anyone had this problem?

    what do you mean full throttle? Are you saying "from a stop, pedal to the floor acceleration with the wheel turned enough to do 90° turn"? Mar 7 '18 at 19:57
  • We borrowed a Subaru XV for a month (wasn't new - had a whole 600 miles on it) while one of our cars was being repaired. It had exactly the same issue - which can be frightening when trying to come out of a side street. We told the dealer about it, and their response was "yeah, they do that sometimes"...). There should be a software update available for it.

If you mean that you have to push the gas pedal down more than half way, even when the wheel is completely fully turned, bring the vehicle to a dealer for repair.

That is not normal.

How many miles do you have on it? Looks like your warranty is 6yrs/60k miles.

Have you had any software updates performed on the vehicle?
