Has anyone else has success getting money from Subaru when the car wasn't under warranty?
The dealership will charge me $50 to diagnose the problem. Then, Subaru will tell me if they'll give me any "goodwill assistance." However the dealer told me it can run over $2000 if they do the timing belt at the same time. My mechanic (who is very good) said he'd probably charge $800. Not to mention the fact that when I made the appt. the dealership service guy was like "oh, and you know you'll be here, so you can get some information, and sometimes they do deals on trade-ins." F*$# you scumbag. I really just want to cancel and have my mechanic bang it all out for $800, as I doubt Subaru will cover even close to the difference, and they are looking for external leaks on a 2003 apparently, and won't deal with internal leaks which is what all symptoms point to. I figure the timing belt will cost a few hundred anyway.
