    WRX Owners beware

    I took my 05 STI to Obrien Subaru in Fort Myers for service. Instead of fixing it they took it on a high speed joy ride and crashed it--$13,000 in damage.

    Does anyone know of a good Subaru mechanic in the Fort Myers/Naples area?

    Thanks.

    Wow does that ever suck! One of those things you hear about occasionally but never think actually could happen to someone. What a bunch of idiots.

    Wow, I'd have that guys job, and a hefty price break on a new car, if it were me. Do not put up with that, do not take it lying down. That dealership BETTER pay out the nose for this.

    For another Subaru? From what you've said your 05 is not repairable, right?

    Just got the car back from the body shop; the dealer did not service the car (they just crashed it and gave it back) so I need another mechanic.

    Couldn't you sue. Or make the dealer pay for all the repairs

    So, according to your sig, you are either at an assisted living facility, or a carry out. It has me a little curious as to whether you are a proprietor, or an occupant, and of which one?

    I'm not the litigious type, but I'd probably make an exception for this. Management at places like a dealer really need to watch over the less responsible types in their employ. I was annoyed when the alarm install guys took my MR2T out for a 3 mile "test drive" many years ago, and they didn't even crash it. "Umm...why did you put mileage on the car, again, to test an alarm?"
