Sadly our local dealer is well known for their terrible Service Dept. So we may have to go elsewhere.
And I just got a report that they have no record of the hard starting being a problem, so they did not want to record the problem. ????? My wife insisted they log it. We need more people doing that or Subaru will never address this problem that seems to have been a Subie problem of many years.
GO FIND A NEW MECHANIC NOW!

My service advisor logged the problem without me asking. I was in to have them install the fog lights and I casually mentioned it. She just started typing away, and printed me a copy to prove she put it in the system. She told me she'd have the tech check it out (to no avail) and if it happened again to call her and she'd get me right in.
