Ive owned my sti for all of about a month. I purchased it used with about 28,000 miles on it. I started noticing a clicking noise in the rear end so I took it in. Turned out both axles need to be replaced due to the cage being cracked. so they tell me they have to call the rep to get approval. They do and he says no on the claim because there has only been problems with axles with people racing them. So of course I get mad and ask them if there is anything that can be done. The dealer contacts him again and tells him that I am a good customer etc... and they dont want to lose me as a customer. he finally agrees to just pay for the parts. well luckily my dealer agreed to do the work for free. So out of all this I really learned that subaru's warranty is basically a joke. Oh and the rep also relayed they message to me that any engine mods or suspension mods would void ALL warranty. so I guess that kinda limits what I can do to it now. I guess I thought subaru would back their cars better.
