    I'm a little late to this, but how did he drive it away? I'm assuming he just swapped some fictitious plates on it?

    This guy really sounds like a class act. Hope karma catches up with him quickly. And his balls fall off.

    go to his house at night and pull his oil plug, an eye for and eye. steal his sti block too and sell it. That should piss him off and teach him a lesson

    Yes the lemon law does apply to third party sales. Do your research because i've done it with an illegal exhaust sale and took it back. But in this case, i don't think the lemon law would apply to him because he is the seller

    This is exactly what happened to me. loud rattle, tried to drive to the dealer, died on the freeway, towed. I took good care of my car with Mobil 1 every 3 month regardless of mileage (less than 3000, this is my weekend car) and other routine maintenence.

    That guy sounds kinda shady, but it could very well be a coincidence.

    I'm late to the thread, and is sounds like you've at least got a new engine happening now, but for future reference, the ECU keeps a history of not only CEL related issues, but pretty much a full data history of various parameters. I would have had a dealer do a full download to a spreadsheet and look for anomalies. Using this, you could backtrack time-wise to when things started to go wrong. If it was while the buyer had the car....I would have said "sorry...no money back". If not, I would have given the money back, just to be fair and avoid bad karma.

    Same thing just happened to me!!!!

    So,

    This thread struck my attention. I have an 03 WRX and (please don't yell at me) got an oil change at Pep Boys while grocery shopping last week. Well, about 50 miles later, my car made a horrible rattle and basically died on the street. I had it towed to a Subaru dealer and they called me a few hours later and asked me "Where is the oil?"

    There is no oil to be found in the car, none on the dipstick, no leak, none ANYWHERE! Methinks that the losers at Pep Boys did not put oil back in my car.

    I am trying to get a lawsuit going, but is there any other cause of this? The car has 127,000 miles. Just changed out the head gaskets, new timing belt. . .never had a problem with oil or oil pressure or anything. never hit the red. ..help. please.

    You would have noticed if it burnt off due to the massive amount of smoke you would have seen behind you, and if it leaked out it's again on pep boys. This is definitely a case of them not putting oil in the car after draining. Law suit time.

    Thanks for the quick response. I am just concerned that I won't have a way to prove it besides the dealer's mechanic saying that is what happened. Any advice on how to prove something like this? I feel like I have a problem with no solution.
