So there are three of us in the country that are lucky enough to have the same issue... at least that they know of.
The CEL is throwing a misfire code (The car is stock) which I have thrown more than once.
They have had to do a valve adjustment so far, the car was out for a week
They are talking with people in Japan about this too...
Now they will probably have to pull the head to see if there is any valve damage. The Service guy mentioned there may be a reflash for it but they were gonna pull the head just to make sure everything was fine. So I am in a crappy Pontiac Sunfire until my Ralph is better
Grr... he also said that he was working with someone from Subaru to maybe compensate me for the lost time on the car- like get me an extended warranty. Sucky thing is I purchased this when I bought the car So I suggested that they maybe refund me the money We will see what happens with that!
So if anyone else has had the same problem get your car into the shop to have it checked out... maybe there are more instances of this than they know about....
I will keep you all posted.
