JUMP START a Subaru and destroy the VDC
By city on


2001 Subaru Outback VDC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


The battery went down on our top of the
line Subaru with VDC. It was jump
started by Subaru Road Service. The
warning lights remained on after it was
jumped. Waited for our 1/22/04
appointment with dealer. At first
service said we were warranty "lucky"
because the VDC computer part cost
$1,200. It was replaced. Car not
returned as promised. More parts needed.
It's now 1/29/04. Again car not returned
as promised. Negotiated 4 days Hyundai
rental for previously plan trip. Service
now says repair not covered under
warranty because of "outside influence".
Western regional manager concurred.
Filed with the State. Car sent to other
dealer. Returned 2/14/04.

Worst Features

Honor Warrenty and pay for rental. We had to pay for the 4 day rental.
