Immediately I'm like great, I bought a peice of crap. So I had him take it to the dealership and run a compression test with leakdown. Numbers came back perfect, so I called him back up and said what the hell dad.
I asked if he knew anything about subaru's and he said no........... Do you know how they sound? No....... when you got on the gas did you even allow the turbo to spool to determin it had no power? I don't know........ $400 later, I could have spent that money on the car damnit!
bottom line, don't rely on your 50 year old parents to tell you if your car is in good condition.
My dad drove mine to me bc I was swapping the gas saver for the WRX. Up until his review (he loved it, said it rode smooth and sounded great) I was thinking about selling it and getting an older one so I'd have something paid off.
Sorry you spent $400 needlessly
