Took it to the dealership near my
house and they had no idea what was
wrong. They threw about $900 in parts
at it, told me they had no idea what
was wrong. Took it to a second
dealership, threw $600 in parts at it
before determining that the wrist pin
#4 was bad. At the time it happened
there were three other people on a
Subaru site with sameproblem. Look up
piston slap. Subaru claims that it
doesn't hurt the engines. I'm not so
sure. A wobbly piston would tend to
wear out a writst pin. Coincidence?
Subaru offered me absolutely no help or
support throughout the ordeal. Cost me
$6000 to fix and took them over 4
Was fun to drive (when it ran).
Take responsibility for a poor design
and help people when they get stuck
with a lemon.
