Evidently, Speedway Subaru, VW, Mazda. Ect in Indianapolis was sending some of its techs to the local SCCA Solo II events with cameras. Then if you went in for warranty work, and they had pictures of you competing, they would deny it because you were racing your car. I guess it didn't matter what was wrong with your car, they would not fix it.

I keep hearing rumors like this and can't figure out how it's in the dealers interest to deny coverage unless it's obvious that it's been abused. With American car companies.. the local dealer service is PAID by the FACTORY to do warranty work. And if they have good techs (ones that can do work faster than the factory quota) they can actually do very well. I guess Subaru doesn't work this way? :confused:

Oh well.. hopefully I'll never need warranty service.

Just goes to show you that the dealer just wants your money and just wants to sit and scratch their rumps. THey give us a free year to SCCA...for WHAT? TO WATCH?!?!

if my dealer did that to me and I went in for something and they denied me..you'd BET i'd smack em in the puss

Well that sucks! That's probably why they gladly give you that membership to the SCCA.

Easy Solution: Go to a different dealership. Tell everyone you know to go to a different dealership. When service revenue starts dropping, the dealer will know they've screwed up.

Call 1-800-SUBARU-3 and tell SOA exactly what this dealer has done. Despite what you all might think, SOA can be very reasonable when presented with calm, logical complaints.

I had heard of this having happened before.

The amazing thing is, people keep asking warranty questions e.g. will an MBC void my warranty? Damn, driving your car in a SCCA event will void your warranty!

Do you have a website for these cats? maybe we can all email them to 'remind them' how much they suck!
