Ok so for a little bit whenever i put it into second i could hear a faint knocking noise got slightly worse so i started skipping 2nd till i could get it into the shop and have a car available to me. so today was the day "quick" trip to the DMV to get my new plates then to the dealership to have it looked at well on my way to the dmv i for whatever reason down shifted into second to pass someone and oh the racket it made i looked over every inch of my dash nothing seemed out of place. now I'm sitting at the light two blocks from the DMV and that faint knocking i only heard in 2nd is now knocking... not in gear at all. light turns green put it into 1st sound goes away till i shift into second and now its 3 times as loud as it was before. i quickly shift into 3rd and baby my way into the dmv parking lot get my new plates and head straight to the dealer. well now they want me to ok 2k worth of labor in case its not covered under my warranty I'm at about 58k now but when i bought the car from a subaru dealer i bought an extended 70k gold + something or other i figured that should cover all my power train shouldn't it? why would they be asking for 16 hours of labor to be authorized if it should be covered? does this not seem like a transmission problem? Are they not telling me something and just trying to stick me with a crap ton of labor? they said the 16 hrs is to take the trans out tear it apart put it back together and put it back in. Seems odd they want me to ok putting a possibly busted trans back into my car.
