For the love of God.....why do people think aliens are reading their brain waves when a dealership asks for a friggen VIN. A VIN is NOT your social security number. A VIN will not allow a dealer to mess with your warranty as a dealer CAN NOT do anything to your warranty ONLY SOA can. They need your VIN because even though you have a 2005 car, Subaru uses different parts/variations of parts within each model year. Your VIN allows them to get the specific part. Don't want to give it to them because you think they will send it to Elvis at CIA headquarters? That's your right.
