    Cold Start Idle CEL problems continuing...

    I just picked up my 2011 WRB hatch last month and already 3 times the CEL for the cold start idle thing has gone on. bought it to subaru and they said they would clear it and next time it goes on that i should leave my car overnight so they can start it in a true "cold start" and go from there. i've also noticed my gas mileage go from around 26 highway to barely 22 highway. car has 2600 miles. has anyone had repeated problems with this and what did subaru say? searched around and found some people saying it might be a bad intake gasket... lemme know what you guys think !

    I think you should leave it overnight at the dealer so they can fix it. I don't understand why they just cleared the code the first time and didn't do anything about it.
