    You'd be super upset if because you didn't live up to your half of the warranty contract they won't live up to theirs? That's rational.

    Was the exhaust a catback or turboback? It would take a moron of a tech not to notice that the downpipe bolts had been tampered with.

    In case you weren't aware, dealerships have the ability to "good will" some/all of the repairs; however, if I was a service manager and someone tried to slip one by me thinking I wouldn't notice, there is no way I would consider it. My advice is to just be honest and see what they're willing to do for you.

    i wouldnt worry about it. I have been dealing with subaru with my 2011 wrx rough idle issue and temp gauge moves around and my car stalls from 1 1/5 rpm to 3 rpm in every gear. been dealing with subaru for months now. they will fix it but it might take them 12 trys. be prepared to not have you car for a while. im thinking to upgrade to the sti cause i cant justify taking my rex into the subu dealer ever month. I believe something is defective in my car cause they cant fix the issue and keep giving me the car back the same way. they even flew an engineer down to figure it out and he couldnt. my cars going back in to the dealer tomorrow lets see what they say now. My rex is stock though but they never asked if i had mods so i wouldnt worry about it.

    I agree one should be as honest with the techs as possible just to get it fixed right unless you'd be really that bent out of shape about paying to get it fixed but I do have a question about the ticking I have an 03 wrx when I bought it the guy said it was a new motor with around 8000 miles on it when I bought it it had a faint tick that I thought was just normal givin that the car has so much stuff done to it well over time it got louder and louder when looking it up I have seen videos had heard stories of other 03's doing the same thing and on the videos the tick sounded exactly like mine ppl have told me its normal but I have a hard time believing that can anyone help me on what you think?

    ^ tick is prob the clutch. See if it makes a different sound when u push the clutch in. In neutral while the car is idle push the clutch see if the sound goes away. I dont think its an issue.

    Sorry but I can't even read your posts. You'll get a lot more people taking time to try and help if you'd take the time to use punctuation and capitalization. I'm not going to give myself a headache trying to read your posts if you can't do that.

    I'm sorry, if your were talking about my post and your right I'm sure It would be hard to read. But the noise is most def. coming from the motor. Now that the weather is cooling down I have noticed some days the tick is louder than others. The tick goes with the RPM's and does not go away when I push in the clutch. The only time it seems to be silent is when I am coming to a stop Before I push in the clutch (like idling down I guess) Any suggestions?
