Just don't expect service
By Argus on


2001 Subaru Legacy L AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Don't expect to get any type of service
from a Subaru dealer. Used synthetic
oil every 5K since new. I've had a
knocking noise in my engine since
70,000km - diagnosed as a "bad bottom
end". I'm now at 86,000km and to this
date no one has been able/willing to
fix it, and it continues to get worse.
They claim the area "rep" has to
inspect all warranty claims over $800
in value, and he is in the nighbourhood
once every 3 months. It's been 5 months
now and 16,000 km later I'm still
waiting to get my car fixed. Fuel
economy is down roughly 40% from new.
I'll be taking Subaru to small claims
court in May and selling my car as soon
after as possible.
