    Catastrophic Failure: Philly

    I started this thread in hopes of getting some suggestions from the philly area locals on what to do in the case of a catastrophic failure, either with the engine or drivetrain. A problem that Could occur in the future unexpectedly and a problem that I won't be able to fix on my own. That is, where should I take my car/have it toed in the event that that happens?

    Can you give me some trusted sources where I won't get the run-around and where I won't get hosed w/big over inflated bills? Mechanic's names, ect ect that could help.

    I guess this could apply to smaller, hard to troubleshoot issues (like my clunking front hub assembly ....) as well.
    2nd WRX...
    More than meets the eye.

    I would hope you guys have a better place then the dealership, I sure am lucky my cousin is a top notch mechanic. I only had to pay him 250 to help me do my clutch and brakes not that he really helped me much with the brakes.

    See, I don't know how much more $ a dealership would cost. But at least you know they're trained on Subaru's and have all the right documentation. It would be nice to hear some rants or raves about some mechanics/dealers. Even if they suck, at least I"ll know Not to go there.
