No they won't. I have an '02 WRX that leaks gas onto the engine block, and two dealerships denied warranty service to fix it. When I spent months complaining to Subaru that the health of my wife and child were being affected by the gas fumes filling the passenger compartment, Subaru repeated over and over and over "Take it to the dealership. We can't do anything unless you take it to a dealership." The dealership, where to protect the health of my family I would be forced to pay around $800 just to fix a component that was incorrectly designed in the first place. It doesn't matter how valid your dispute is, or what the potential damage may be to your baby, much less the car. SUBARU DOESN'T CARE AND WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO REIGN IN THE DEALERSHIPS. When you complain about the dealership they will say "we don't own it, we can't control it." You can do nothing about Subaru, short of hiring a lawyer and giving him the $800 to get Subaru to fess up. They rely on the expense of litigation to protect them from ever having to have any semblance of customer service at all.Originally Posted by Doc Dub E
And after multiple stories like Sonic's, where the car comes back from the dealership with the boost pegged, or it comes back half full of oil, or the oil filter falls off or leaks, why would anyone ever trust their car to the dealership? I'm going to buy some fuel line from Pegasus Racing and redo their horribly engineered fuel line myself for probably less than $200, just so I never have to deal with Subaru ever again. It goes without saying that I'll never buy a Subaru again. I'll do my best to never have to buy parts from Subaru ever again. Every penny I don't have to give them is worth $20 to me.
