    Thats bullsh*t. Stop marketing these cars as fast and including memberships.


    Reminds me of the time the EVO guys were dragging their cars at the dragstrip and EVO reps were there, writing down lisence plates.

    In the slow lane

    Up here in Canada, Subaru gave out 1 year memberships to the CAA (analogous to the AAA in the US).

    Perhaps that is what they all should do in order to avoid confusion as to what they want owners to do with these cars.

    "Bottom line: After entering the car in one SCCA event, Miller was left with a $7,000 bill for repairing two failed connecting rods and a blown turbocharger."

    If this EVO was stock, how couldn't they cover it? I mean, in stock form, wouldn't the rods and turbo have to be defective to go this quickly?

    For instance, even though Subaru pops for a one-year SCCA membership for every interested WRX buyer, and in its marketing materials appears to encourage owners to enter their cars in autocross events, the company says autocrossing is racing and racing can void warranty coverage. The WRX/SCCA application form says the SCCA “looks forward to helping you fully experience the benefits of owning this car.” But the form also includes a disclaimer that Subaru’s warranty excludes “damage or failure resulting from participation in competition or racing events.”

    “If the damage looks to be racing related, you’re not going to be covered,” says Subaru spokeswoman Larkin Hill. “We don’t want to punish the person who goes out once in a while and autocrosses—and that shouldn’t cause any problems with the car anyway. However, autocross is considered competition and the warranty does not cover abusive driving or competition. If you’re out there racing every weekend, you can’t expect us to fund it."
    So anyone have a copy of the form handy?
