    SOA's phone number is easy to find, and regional reps stop by often to look at warranty work. If the reg. rep says it's a no go, then your back up against a wall.


    Well it isn't a bull story and it was SOJ not Fuji Heavy Industries, and he received a check for $796 for head gasket parts / labor.

    Oh and the rep said it was a no go thats why he contacted SOJ.

    Well whatever I saw the letter they wrote him and the check.

    Hijak over.

It sounds to me you had a case of the "Warranty work doesnt pay as much as walk in rates so I'm going to drag me feet and hope this works" Sorry for your awful experiance.

    IMHO if you are driving that far it would be worth your while to try Annapolis Subaru, Herb Gordon Subaru, Russell Subaru (if you go to russell PM me and I'll get you the name of a tech over there who is fairly good from what I hear, some techs over there are a tad shady I've heard).

    You dont have to have your car worked on by the shop you bought it at. Driving that far is worthless and an extra headache to you.

    I've heard good things about the part dept. at Annapolis and I'm sure the shop is fairly good from what I've heard. Herb Gordon is where I bought my car and the sales staff was great, but I'm not sure about their service part.

    Heck with the way they treated you I'd just try to go to the closest dealership (Might be Hunt Valley Subaru) and see what they say.

    The only shop I'd really stay clear of would be Jones Junction. They are horrible.

    If it was out of warranty I'd 100% send you down to Andrewtech in Gaithersburg as they are extreamly good with Subaru's, but arent a dealership so warranty work isnt something they can do. Good luck.

    Thank you so much for this information - it was exactly what I was hoping for. Herb Gordon is actually the closest to me. I live about 10 minutes north of them and I test drove with them. I will look into their shop first. Annapolis sounds like it might work out for me too. It's still a bit of a treck for me, but I prefer 30-40 minutes on 32 much better than the lights and bumper to bumber through MoCo. I am going to PM you for the Russell info also, just in case.

    No, I don't have any boost gauge. I pretty much have the standard middle of the line wrx - no mods, no real options either.

    Yeah thats what I thought too. My problem isn't gas cap related, but they told me on the phone initially that if it were gas cap related, it wouldn't be covered under warranty either.

    There have been a TON of gas cap tightening related codes popped for the P1443. The dealer is frustrated because they are taking time out from "real" warranty repairs that earn them more money.
    That said, tough cookies for them. They obviously don't want your business in the service department. Like posted your warranty is good at ANY SOA authorized dealer, which is anyone who sells new Subie's and has a service department. In cases like this remind the sales manager where you bought your car ( if they don't already remember ) and note the poor customer service you are receiving. I can almost guarantee you a loaner plus hotel expenses if you live so far away would come at breakneck speed. FWIW I would be going elsewhere anyway, I only get burned or ticked off once especially when there are choices.
    Sounds like you have a bad baffle or leak in the neck of your fuel tank. Had a similar issue on the family truckster ( Trailblazer ), same codes and filling problem. Of course the local dealer gave us a loaner and charged us zero for the repairs ( new gas tank ).
    Love the screen name ( ICB ). This from real life experience?!?

    I just bought an 03 WRX. Great car except the previous owner failed to inform me that its takes 15 minutes to fill up because the gas pump continually shuts off. I also get a 1443 error code. I read earlier in this thread that Irish Car Bomb had the same problem. Did you get it fixed? If so, what was the solution. It's frustrating to fill it up now. With winter fast approaching, I'm not looking forward to spending 15 minutes filling this thing up when it's 10 degrees outside.

    Thanks

    i pulled a P1443 code today on a customers car. subarunet recommended looking for a clogged evap system drain tube. a tech i work with said he's even seen spider webs in the tube clog it and cause the CEL.
